Fun in the snow!

It has been snowing here and snowing and snowing.  Since the kids are out of school for the holidays, that means lots of time to build snowmen, have snowball fights and just generally play around in the snow.  The kids are in heaven.  Well, Will is.  Kate doesn't enjoy it quite so much.  Here's why:

The snow was so deep she kept sinking in up to her waist so she couldn't walk!

This allowed her brother...

Little stinker
...to pelt her mercilessly with snowballs from his perch up high, while she lay helpless, mired in the snow.

I did step in eventually and put a stop to it.  But not right away.  It was kind of funny.

Kate soon regained her good humor and let us bury her in the snow.  I tried pretending we were on a warm beach, burying her in sand but it didn't really work.  My toes were too numb.

The more it snows the more I'm plotting our return to Tunisia (or some other beautiful, warm place with gorgeous beaches).

This is where I want to be!


  1. I know. Luckily for her, Will's aim isn't very good so most of the snowballs missed!

  2. This is so funny I snorted with laughter when Mom showed me the page. Some of my snowballs DID hit Kate!!!!
