So, today was a rather CRAZY day here in North Texas! For the first time in 30 YEARS we had the most amazing snowfall I have ever witnessed....since I am a little shy of 30 years old, and all. It was incredible. So far we are at 7 inches and it is supposed to snow until midnight.
I took Ava outside right away and told her about the snow. She called it "SO".
I love these pics of her because Ava is just like her mom in that she is very stoic and I can already tell that she has some quit wit and has a dry sense of humor. So, she looks annoyed, but it's not the case. She just doesn't get too excited about much...unless it's cheetos or a lollipop!
Another sad truth is she is too young to appreciate it. But she loved talking about it! I decided to go over to my mom's house (since Aaron was still at work), to have some snowball fights with my 6 year old nephew. I knew he'd appreciate it! I'm still such a kid.
We then went home and I decided that I wanted to build a snowman because I knew Ava would love to look out the window and obsess over the "man" (she loves the word man for some reason). HA HA! So, I took her out to get it started, and when she realized she couldn't really walk around in the 7 inches, she was not very happy about it. Anything slowing her down is SO NOT COOL!
So...inside we went and I continued the building when Aaron got home from work. Here is the finished snowman!
It even has rhinestones for buttons and a rickrack nose! Ava was very excited about the "so-man". She would sit in the window sill all night and say "hiiii seet so-man" (hi sweet snowman).
sidenote: I have on about 3 layers of clothes and that cap on my head is barely hanging on so I look rather um frightening.
And on to the last adventure...snow ice cream! It was yummy!! Aaron thought I was crazy since he had never heard of it before. He was pleasantly surprised. I thought it tasted just like a wedding cake snowcone.
So, all in all it was just a wonderful day and I can't believe we actually had this winter wonderland in Texas!!!
