Snow Day!

It's been a funny weather week. Last Saturday it was in the 60's, then Tuesday and Wednesday were COLD days at the local school districts- there was no snow, but it was so cold the busses wouldn't start so they cancelled school. Then, yesterday it really started snowing, and this morning we woke up to about 10 inches of snow and cancelled church. You never know what to expect in Denver- we get it all in a week!
Here are some pictures of the girls playing in the snow. It's a little deceiving, though- Claire lasted literally about 3 minutes. She HATES being cold, but thinks she wants to be outside. So we spent 20 minutes bundling up, then went outside and she immediately fell in the snow. Her gloves wouldn't stay on, and after a couple minutes we came back inside. Audra was a trooper, though, and she and Ben played for about an hour outside.

 This is her snow castle- you can kind of see it on the right side of the picture.
 Believe it or not, this is Audra's first snowman (or snowbear). She loved playing outside!


  1. Yep, cutie pies! Claire sounds a lot like me. I also hate being cold. I'm glad you guys can enjoy it a little though.
