Snow Days

It's Day 8 of snow here.  The children love it and don't want it to go, but I'm getting quite sick of it now.  I dread doing the school run as there's nowhere to park due to piles of snow everywhere, and the postman hasn't made it into my street for a week!

The great thing about it is seeing the children have so much fun.  I've been looking through my photos from the last week and love to see the children so rosy cheeked and smiling.

All smiles
The long walk back up the hill





















The only disappointment is that I don't seem to have any of my oldest.  He just races off and is too fast for me.  I'll try to catch him before the snow disappears.  He did build this fabulous snowman though.  Hubby finished it off with some Lego pieces, a bucket, cones and a toy golf club!  Strangest looking snowman I've ever seen.

My youngest wasn't too keen on the snow; in fact, he refused to go out for the first few days but curiosity finally got the better of him and so here he is taking a few precarious steps in the snow outside the house while his big brother helps to clear some snow from the driveway.

Whatever I think of the snow it is very pretty.  I took this photo of my neighbours tree because I love the way it looks all covered in snow.



Did you get any snow where you are?  Are you still enjoying it, or will you be glad to see the back of it?  I've never been more desperate for it to rain (don't tell my boys I said that!)
