Saturday - Snow Day II

This morning, the snow was still beautiful outside, and Katie Anne woke up bright and early.  She was very excited to get outside and play in the snow with Daddy, and we knew the snow wouldn't last long with temperatures climbing to almost 40 in the afternoon.  So, we all got up, got bundled in our snow gear, and got outside to play before 8:00 am.
 There was so much snow this morning!  Saunders measured it, and it was more than 3 inches deep in our front yard.  It was 4 inches deep on the deck table and railings.
Katie Anne had a blast in the snow again - she definitely loves the snow, and we played out in it for almost two hours before she got too cold.  
 She loved pelting Daddy with snowballs, but she doesn't like snowballs being thrown at her!  (I'm exactly the same way - we're bad sports.  Poor Daddy!)
This kid loves...
loves eating snow!
Let's hope none of it was yellow!
Daddy showed Katie Anne how to make snow angels.
She was intrigued...
But I wasn't sure she would actually do it herself.
Boy, was I wrong!  Before Saunders had barely moved, she had flopped down to make her own!
Once she figured out the process, we couldn't stop her from making snow angels!
Every time we turned around for the next few minutes, that little silly-willy had flopped back down to make another one!
After my dad got back from taking my mom to work, he came over and brought our old sled for KA.  (Yes, poor Gigi had to work ... "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.")  Katie Anne loved riding on the sled all around the yard!
My favorite picture of her from the day...
We had such a fabulous time playing in the snow!
