The big girls LOVE the snow. Over the last couple days we got 4-6 inches, and it is still coming down out there. It is a really beautiful site. I LOVE to watch the snow. I have even embraced the zen of shoveling. I kinda dig the extra work out. But as much as I think I like it, Joey and Alana have me beat. They will spend an hour in the snow. The can hardly walk in it when it gets this deep, they kind of half crawl through it, leaving little tunnels in the snow behind them. It reminds me of that old comic, family circle, where it was a picture of their back yard and little foot prints that showed the path the little kid took and what they were doing. Joey does this thing where she crawls a few feet and then sings "Dig dig dig dig dig dig dig" to the tune of twinkle twinkle. She digs down as far as she can, then moves on and starts again. Alana likes to play like she is on a mission, she takes one of our spoons out with her, tosses it into the snow then run/crawls to it and says, "OH, LOOK, A CLUE!!!" digs it out, tosses it and starts again. They come it all red faced, joey usually has a long stream of snot coming down her face. I stood at the door and just watched them for a long time. Sometimes, laundry can just wait.
