it's a winter wonderland for belle, my sister, & all the kids on the block.
it snowed starting sunday morning & stopped monday morning.
i woke up early on sunday so aris & i can shop & prepare for the storm.
i literally had 5 pull ups & one serving of milk left. so i really really needed to get up.
i got home and the snow started. perfect.
monday morning:about 2 feet of snow everywhere.
belle was so excited. always looking outside.
our neighbors came to the rescue.
we only have shovels.
they have the cool plow thing. & took my brother's car out of the snow.
& made our driveway & walkway bigger.awesome!then belle got on her sled and we pulled her around as fast as we could.
she wanted out. i was pulling her out & didn't realize she was strapped in.
my crazy sister was laughing & aware she was strapped in. while i was pulling her out like a crazy woman.
my dad....so over the shoveling. getting old.
belle's hat is big. cause it belongs to aris! haha
her favorite hat is missing. so she wore aris's.
belle finally came in cause her gloves fell off & her hands were cold.
then everyone followed & ate.
& the next day. belle got her snow gear again & was begging to make a snowman.
"Pweease? Pweease? snowman!"ok off we go.
it's hard to say no to that "Pweeease??"
& in the backyard we have a little hill of snow.
the strong winds formed it. which is cool.
we attempted to let belle slide down with her sled.
she liked it the first time...but not so much the second time.
she enjoyed climbing up the hill more than sliding down.
then we finally worked on our snowman.
it. was. hard. work.
cause we made each ball separately & stacked it on top of each other.
but the second ball was SO HEAVY! me & my sister couldn't lift it.
then belle was getting impatient.
so i brought her in.
then my sister rolled those things up our "hill" so she can use all the snow up there to form a ramp of snow by the bottom ball to roll up the second one on top.
she was real committed to that snowman. haha!
karen saw the pictures & she said, "i hate that the meter thing is right next to it!"
"the fact that the snowman is finished is great & i don't care what it's next to!"
we were tired.
we came inside, got warm, & watched tv.
next thing i know, belle fell asleep.
this blizzard was like last year's.
but i don't know which was more fun.
most likely this year cause we have that crazy snowman!
