At the end of February, we got QUITE the surprise - a couple of snow days in Louisiana! We rarely, if ever, get snow. It's usually sleet or ice, but this was real actual snow! It started out as sleet and ice, but turned to snow a day or two later. It was unreal to see the snow falling! We bundled Emory up and let her play for a little bit outside, which she loved! She kept begging me to go "play in the snowman." Haha!
Playing outside with daddy! This was more of the "ice day."
Cutest little snow bunny!
She loved eating the ice and snow!
"Look mommy! Ice!"
Play time! She seriously loved being out in it!
A little snack. Haha.
Who rides their 4-wheeler down the street during an ice storm?! That would be MY redneck husband. Haha. He's such a country boy!
Such a sweet face!
Our attempt at sledding - and Emory was not a fan! Haha! Hence why this is the only picture!
Bundled up! She could barely walk! Haha!
Two days later, it was really SNOWING! So we had to bundle up and head back outside for more play time. At first Emory was a little scared of the falling snow, but she got over it quickly and loved it. She kept saying, "Snow on mommy! Snow on Emory!"
I just "snow" that she is the cutest thing ever!! ; ) That one was for you, Lis!
You can see the snow falling!! In Louisiana! It was real!
And lots of snow kisses!
She might want to move up north - she loved the snow!
"Snow on Emory!"
Watching her explore and learn is my favorite thing!!
Sweetest little footprints.
Throwing snowballs! This was her favorite thing to do!
This should be a Christmas post card! Haha!
Justin didn't get home from work until the "heavy" snow fall was over, but we still got to play outside in it a little bit once he was home.
So blessed with this beautiful family.
Next, it was time to make snow ice cream! Except we didn't have any sugar. Who doesn't have sugar, right?! Apparently us. So we had to improvise with powdered sugar and milk and vanilla.
So excited for "I cream!"
And it was...pretty disgusting. Haha. Apparently real sugar is a must when making snow ice cream.
Emory didn't mind, though. She wanted to eat it anyway! This girl is an ice cream lover!
It sure does look pretty!
Ice cream kisses!
We really did love and enjoy our snow days! It was so neat to see it legitimately snow and to get to experience it with Emory! However, I am really glad that we live in the south where it doesn't happen much. It's hard being cooped up indoors with a toddler who just wants to go outside! Haha! We will take our one snow day every couple of years. ; )
