white day-after-christmas

we were hoping for a white christmas this year, it would have been our first since we've lived in nc. we didn't get a white christmas, but we got tons of snow on the 26th! better a day late than never, right!? malcolm was sooo excited, he's been asking to make a snowman for weeks (ever since we bought a copy of the old "frosty the snowman" and "frosty returns" cartoons on dvd, haha!)

when we got home on christmas night, there were tiny flurries in the air...

and this is what we woke up to on sunday morning!
(our view from inside the house)

this may not look like much, but this is a lot of snow for us! it was pretty great!

the boys braved the cold temperature, and ventured out to make a snowman! good thing we had just found malcolm a nice warm coat (thanks vicky!) too bad i still haven't found him any good boots yet.

malcolm loved being out there in it :)

our poor frozen pumpkins, leftover from halloween :(

their masterpiece! they did a wonderful job, biggest snowman on our block.

the boys making snow angels. they had been out there for quite a while, and by this point malcolm was cold, tired, and generally over it. he wanted to come inside.

i got him out of his cold wet clothes, wrapped him up in a soft, cozy woobie, and laid him in his new recliner. alanna heated her "snuggle bag" (rice filled sack) in the microwave to help warm him up. he loved it.

danny's mom and dad also got a lot of snow where they live, and they emailed us these photos of their snowman!

dan and vicky, he turned out so cute, and this photo is fantastic :)
