Ice, Snow and Chocolate (Updated with Videos)

On Sunday, it began snowing just before we were to leave for Church. We braved the weather though and by afternoon it had changed to freezing rain and sleet. By Monday morning, the world was covered in a thin sheet of ice above an inch or two of snow. It was very pretty. 

The girls tried to sled and play in it. They gave it a fair shot though the ice made it a little difficult. Cecilia said the ice was great for sledding though. 

The girls had fun eating icicles and sucking on chunks of ice. 

Brigid was so fascinated by the empty space left by all the snow boots in use she climbed into it to see what there was to see. 

How beautifully appropriate that the earth was covered white on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception to reflect the lights anticipating the birth of our Savior!

By Tuesday morning, more snow was falling and we got another 4 or 5 inches before lunch. It was beautiful and the girls had a blast. 

They asked me to help them make Olaf (If you haven't seen Disney's Frozen yet, I recommend it!). It was perfect snow for building!

Felicity helped me shovel the slush off the patio in the hopes it won't ice tonight, which will make it easier for the girls to play tomorrow.

Cecilia challenged me to a snowball fight. 

I got into it. As I said, it was the perfect snow for building.

But she was not to be outdone and upped the ante. 

Afterwards we had hot chocolate and read a chapter of Little House in Big Woods. 

And then had snow cones. :)

Wednesday was spent mostly sledding.
