A Snowy Trick

Edited: I have also updated over at Immortality Art (photography and scrapbooking) (scroll beneath the scrapbook layout) and Learning and Growing at Home ( home education)

After 2 weeks of above zero temperatures, sunshine and melting snow, the spring tease fled the region. Sunday was cold, very cold, minus 20 degrees cold. Yesterday was much warmer but the snow returned. It must have snowed 4 inches of huge, fluffy and wet flakes. It was melting here while the snow fell and the kids had a blast playing outside and getting completely soaked.
Papa was here for his 2 days before going up north to work. (It is minus 50 degrees Celcius where he is going!) The littles enjoyed showing off for him. Check out my Hockey Warrior Princess and her foe, the Dark (but adorable) Knight. Her ensemble of hockey jersey and full, pink, tulle, princess skirt is one that only my Girly could pull off.




































Here she is giving her warrior princess yell.























After a full day of running circles around the living room and yelling at the top of their lungs, it was time to curl up with Papa and some books. He gets to read a LOT of books while he is here. Girly says, "Papa, you like to read me a story?" and when she gets a non-committal answer, she grabs his hand. "Papa, you DO like to read me a story!" She pulls him to the couch, pushes him down and picks out at least 3 more books to add to the pile.
The best part of the whole thing is that he keeps her occupied and I don't have to yawningly read a dozen stories. Thanks Dad!
Oh! Check out how long Girly's hair has gotten!

    Sorry about the snow but it is fun for the kids. I always struggled with this time of year. It just seemed to take so long to get to spring! It got cold again here too but nothing like that!

    Miss ya!
