Snow Day!

We got a solid 6 inches last night! It was a really heavy, wet snow, which makes for some more challenging shoveling. Martin worked from home today, so we took our time getting dug out. Actually I did a large part of the shoveling since he was working, and Emma loved watching me shovel, and especially watching the snow plow. Every time it came by she would say "yay!" and clap for them :-)

She was only a little nervous at first, probably because it looked like we were blocked in the garage.

It was so windy, so we got snow plastered all up along the house.

We took a break from shoveling to walk in the fresh snow. Emma said "sit" and plopped herself down in the middle of it!

She loved trying to run in it too. Because the wind blew so much, there were places that she could walk through fairly easily. She ended up running with her tongue out!

And fun rolling around in it of course.

We tried to make a snowman last time but it was too cold and the snow too dry. We succeed this time, and made an Emma-sized snowman. Martin was able to come out for a little bit and took some pictures of us...Emma wanted to give it a hug!

Emma and Mommy!

Looks like you had a great time. I wonder where she got that running with her tongue out??? Maybe the same place she got her itchy back??? :) And in that first picture of you two with the snowman (the profile), you look sooo much like Mom! Beautiful ladies all around! Love you all, Dad/Pap Pap
