Snowball Fight!

Grace was the first one home from school and she built herself a little cute Grace-man, all by herself. She wanted no help and wouldn’t let us see until she was done.

When Sadie got home, we all came out

And things went crazy from this point

Jacob even got in on it

Maya enjoyed watching from the porch

We let to Togo in on the action. He went absolutely berzerk. He moved so fast, I couldn’t get an unblurry picture of him.

Then we saw Callie and her friends pull up, so we “hid” so we could pummel them.

They pummeled back

Well, some of them did anyway. Callie fights like a girl.

My camera started to get really wet, but I just kept shooting through the water

Come to think of it, Bethany fights like a girl too…

Yep – they’re all girls.

At some point, Callie went down and she just laid there.

And laid there…

…until she got cold enough to take some action. Boy, was my lens wet by this point.

And somehow, in the midst of it all, we built a Mrs. Frosty

I know this is a lot of pictures. But twelve inches in 24 hours! In Dallas! It’s amazingly, breathtakingly beautiful. And school is cancelled. And we’re soaking up as much of it as we can. Even though we have no good coats or gloves or boots.

Next up: Sledding on cookie sheets.

    Thanks for the pictures. Sim would’ve loved that snowball fight. He fights like a boy. All day long he kept throwing snowballs at Nathan. Meanwhile Nathan just kept eating handfuls of snow–that boy! Poor Mack has had to stay inside because all of our good baby snow clothes are up in the attic, he didn’t seem too interested when I took him out in it anyway.

    Love all you snow bunnies!

    So much fun! Remember the snowball fight we had between the Beans and the Linebargers? What was it 6 years ago?

    I love those boys of yours, Divine. I’ll get my pics of sledding with them up next.

    Kimby, you’re so cute, Montana probably doesn’t need much more than your cuteness to be a wonderful place.

    And oh, yes I remember, Kirsty. In fact, you Beans are the inspiration for everything we do. Nothing else compares.

    Is that You’re the inspiration to my life sung ala Chicago?

    That looks like it was a lot of fun. Can’t wait to see sledding on cookie sheets.
