Our Big Snow!

We got the most awesome storm roll in on Friday night! Then last night we got another batch of goodness, giving us almost a full foot of snow here in the valley! It's just so beautiful!

Ian was so excited Saturday morning... he loves snow and he'll just sit at the window and watch it fall. He'll take breaks, but he will check the snow accumulation quite often just like a little kid. So after Ian helped our neighbors move yesterday, he went to Brighton to do some night skiing. He called me when he got to the top of the mountain and said, "Gina, I am at the top of the mountain and it's snowing! This is so awesome!" I was happy that he was able to go. He took the Land Rover and was glad he did. All wheel drive is definitely all it's cracked up to be. I drove in the yuck yesterday for a few errands and was grateful for such good control on the road. Makes a mama feel safe with her little one in tow.

Today after church we got bundled up and took Liam sledding. We only took him down twice then just played in the snow with him. He was delighted! Pure glee as his dad threw snow, spit snow and dug in the snow. So fun!

Here is my favorite photo from our outing. You can see the rest HERE.

Could his eyes match his coat any more than they do? I love snow, but only for a little bit. If it snows here, EVERYTHING shuts down. People don't know what to do. So, it is nice for only a couple of days. Glad that you live where you can enjoy it.
BTW-All wheel drive rocks, even in Texas. Just nice to know you have it just in case!!
