Fun in the Snow

 Winter has finally come! We sure were excited to see some snow on the ground. Henry enjoyed munching on some big bones. What do you think they were from?

 From a dinosaur, of course!
 Desert Girl and Desert Boy got to try out the snow shoes. The footprint ones were a lot more fun than the regular ones.

Then it was time to go sledding down the pile of gravel in our driveway. Some day it may be spread around so we don't track so much dirt and mud into our house, but I'm guessing that day may still be months away. In the meantime, we might as well make the best of it!

Desert Boy really wanted to make a snowman, but the snow had gotten a little crusty and we had to settle for a miniature snow man.

It was small, but cute!
Henry kept chomping on the bones. Then the kids decided they had to chomp on something, too.

Fortunately they didn't need bones--snow did the trick.

Yum, what a treat.

Finally it was time to go inside and get some hot chocolate. But first we had to find a suitable spot for the snowman--on top of Henry's doghouse.

We're hoping we have some more time to play in the snow before the warm days melt it all away. We might have to head to higher ground. And keep our fingers crossed that we really do get another snow storm this weekend!

Not fair! You got our snow! Living in the midwest, we're used to several inches on the ground from the end of November through March. We've had only two "Dustings" of less than 1 inch all year.
