Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

On Carol's birthday (in Georgia) we had a very pleasant surprise... SNOW!  It all started during church, someone came in and said it was snowing outside and we went out to find this!  Of course I had to get Isabelle out of nursery, I didn't want her to miss seeing the snow fall. Little did I know the snow would keep falling all day!  It was a winter wonderland.  

When we got home, I changed Isabelle into some warmer clothes and we went out to play in the snow.  At first she was a bit skeptical, not really knowing where all this white, cold stuff was coming from, but it didn't take her long to figure out that it was a lot of fun.  

Chloe and Cassie brought out their sleds that they had only previously used on the grass.  They were thrilled to use them on the snow. Mikenzie also tried using them as a snowboard and did pretty good. Mikenzie decided to take Isabelle down the hill on the sled.  Isabelle had no idea what she was getting herself into when she willingly climbed on the sled.  

But she soon found out.

Needless to say she didn't volunteer to go on the sled again.

Isabelle's true joy came when we built a snowman.  We sang "Once there was a Snowman" and she finally understood what the song was all about.  Now she loves when I sing the song.  

Isabelle kept giving the snowman hugs and kisses.  It was so tender and sweet.

What a fun day!  Bye-bye Mr. Snowman!
