Shame on me.

I complained about the snow.
I'll admit that I really dislike cold.
I've mentioned a time or two that I crave color. Lots of color.
This Spring-time Family Fun magazine came in the mail the day the sleet started. I wasn't happy to be teased.

So I was not at all thrilled with getting hit by a blizzard this past weekend!

The Man decided to snap me out of my grumpy funk and take us all sledding.





Someone had built a snowman for everyone to enjoy.


The Baby looked so tiny walking up that hill by himself!




BUMP!



The Boy wanted to be sure I put this picture on my blog where he's sure he looks like a ninja. Yes, he's 7.


Needless to say, we all had a great time. Shame on me for being grumpy about the weather. This week is supposed to be beautiful and sunny, and maybe a bit slushy.

I'm hooked on sunshine and kids so I'm adding this to the Hooked On series. Come join the fun!

I love the sledding pictures! I'm not a big fan of cold so we usually only make it once or twice in spring.

And Family Fun is probably my second favorite magaine - right behind paper crafts!

nic said...

ah yes, snow. wasn't march great? now that we're in april, though, i'm voting for a nice thaw, with a dousing of sunshine and a bit of a warm breeze.

this is a democracy, after all.

Jenny said...

Great pictures! Looks like you had fun!

Tonya said...

Shoot...y'all got a ton more snow than we did up here in Topeka! My kids were bummed there wasn't snow to play in. I, on the other hand, was not bummed! Looks like y'all had a blast!

Kristi REDISKE said...

I love your pics and your different posts. I found your blog through the McClenahans blog. I would like to ask a question about your pics-how do you get them to be so clear? I am trying to take pics of my grandaughter-I have a canon 30d and it seems I have trouble with that. I try to shoot in manual-do you have any suggestions? My e-mail is rearranger@msn.com-I would appreciate any help. Thanks for blogging-its enjoyable.

Beautiful pictures! We had a blizzard, too, with about 15 inches of snow Friday through Saturday.

We loved every bit of it!

The Summer Kitchen Interiors said...

We think the last snow is ALWAYS the best, and most fun!! Thanks for the great pictures!

Holly said...

Sorry about the blizzard, but looks like you had fun!

ImagineCozy said...

Good for you! Our Spring seems to be taking forever to get here as well. But the snow is beautiful---and the kids love it! Especially if you go sledding with them.

Mrs. Petrie said...

I can't decide if I would prefer snow or the horrendous wind we have been getting in NM. The snow play your family had looked like so much fun!

Anonymous said...

What great pictures!

I love the happy faces and the wide open spaces!

The Jack Johnson song was a perfect accompanyment to the pics!

Lazy Mom Leslie said...

Even though you were longing for the colors of spring, I am loving all the colors against the snow!

My daughter is attending college in Vermont, and I keep wondering how she is dealing with the continuous snow...she says she is having a blast...looks like your family figured out the same thing.
