Snow Days

We had a delightful bit of snow right in time for Bean's birthday.  She was absolutely thrilled at the chance to go outside and play in something other than frozen temperatures.  And of course, I was elated to go with her.  
We visited the animals in her zoo where she fed the tigers snow sandwiches and snow noodles.  The bears had a full helping of snow soup.
Then we chased the dogs around and watched them try to eat the snow.  I taught her the ever important snow play mantra, "Watch out where the doggies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow."  She dubbed it "pee-pee snow" and wrinkled her nose when she came across it on her treks through the yard.
We hid in the magic tree for awhile and tried to stay away from the big, giant DRAGON MONSTER!  The tree provides optimal invisibility.

We only thought we saw him a few times...  then he turned into a nice dragon monster, so we invited him into our tree area for a snack and some tea.  Bean was sort of shocked at how big he was.
But he settled right in and we served snow cakes and stick popsicles lightly dusted with some snow sprinkles.  The dragon's particular favorite was the snow pie, but I wasn't a huge fan.  After awhile, the dragon gave Bean a nuzzle and flew off to his cave for a nap.

We went in for dinner and then to bed for some nice dreams, lightly sprinkled with the possibility of more snow.   


  1. I'm SO jealous of your outdoor snow fun! It's amazing what 20 miles will do to the weather as our snow was not at all enjoyable and is now just ice.

  2. I too, am a little jealous of the snow. Only because ours was a little more than a dusting and the kids could barely get enough in their hands to make a snowball! I believe the total snow last year here was 2 inches. So, I guess it will be like this from now on. I'm sure the kids will get used to it.

    Bean is just an absolute doll! I'm glad the two of you had some time to yourselves and could get outside! I'm sure she revels in those times alone with her fantabulous mommy!

  3. Way too cute. Abby refused to put on her snow pants, so she was not allowed in the snow. We're dictators in our house, I guess. :o) I'm sure she won't be so stubborn next time - the look on her face this morning when she saw the snow was amazement!

  4. That is adorable! I'm so glad Bean had a snow filled birthday and you and her were able to play in the snow!

  5. Ooh, that second to last pic is AWESOME!~
