SUNDAY SNOW DAY!! Well after me saying about looking up for snow for ages we finally got some! Yippee! I awoke at 7:30am and saw it falling when I opened my eyes. Happy that it had finally delivered and also being the first to awake I closed my eyes to go back to sleep. No way i'm getting up yet! Well actually yes there is! I MUST have a video of it a piccie of the garden! So here they are! After padding to the back kitchen door this is what I got. Video a bit rubbish through the grubby kitchen door lol! https://youtu.be/qwwiLWO1WOw
After taking these I did indeed go back to bed and slept another hour or so. I woke when I heard hubby go to the bathroom and was greeted with "IT SNOWED" "IT SNOWED" from Jessica seconds later. This was so loud it woke the whole house and then Sophie was up. We all jumped straight out of bed and put on our clothes to go outside. I was dressed first so got everybody's coats, hats, scarves, gloves and wellies ready. Me and the girls went out first to the back garden. By this point - I dunno 845/9ish it had started sleeting so job 1 is making the snowman before it's all gone! Sophie was super excited as it hasn't snowed since she was 2 years old (current picture on my facebook profile) and she doesn't remember it. She wanted to take her gloves off and feel it as it is with bare hands for her "first ever snow". So cute! Here's some pics of the snowman making. Hubby was still indoors waking up with caffine and getting in the loft to find the all important sledge!
Mr Snowman - Who we inevitably called Frosty! - has 2 firework rocket plastic thingies for his arms. Jessica's idea! Stones for his tummy which Sophie found for his buttons. And I had to go and dig in the rock hard veggie patch to pull up a carrot for his nose!! J pulled out the scarf, hat and gloves too.
Once we had finished Mr Frosty the snowman the man with the sledge was suitably attired for the weather so we decided to go out on our front drive way with it. We are lucky that our drive is on a hill so we can go speeding down it. Under normal circumstances this is a silly idea as you might get run over by cars as you go into the road! However - they have closed the road for roadworks at the end! So happy days it was all ours!
After this went over to the play park which is literally over the other side of the road. We took the sledge with us and mucked around over there. Sophie saw a school friend so her friend was chasing her on the sledge throwing snowballs at her as she went by. Here are some more pics and a couple of videos i've put on youtube. Here's some sledging action with daddy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuN763LsUZ4
