Snow snow snow

Snow snow snow, and lots of it. We woke this morning to 4 inches (10 cm). The phone rang hot and there was no school, yayyyyyy. But during the day it has snowed more and more and we ended up with 8 inches (20 cm) of it lying around by 4.00. Heres our outside chairs
This view is from our gate across the hills, just beautiful
The kids were in and out all day, making snowballs and throwing them at us, luckily the window was between them and my camera :)
As you can tell by Abby in her short t-shirt, it wasn't actually cold, I did manage to get her out of her shorts and then a skirt, so we comprimised and she could keep her t-shirt on if she put longs on, (wow, shes only 5, imagine the negotiation skills I'm going to need when she is 15?)
After lunch we decided to go out with a wool pack behind the bike. Wow, what fun we all had. The dogs came too and were running around like lunatics chasing the bike and rolling in the snow. Still not sure who had the most fun, but we ended up coming inside when the fingers started going numb.
Here's Jake going for a spill and he was laughing all the time. And he has Lionels gloves on too :)
Heres Ollys turnHe wasn't too happy at being thrown off and Abby having her turn,

But Abby didn't mind (here I was on the back of the bike to get this photo and I just missed her being sprayed with a shower of snow, just after this)

She thought it was great fun :)

Wow! What a fun day, the snow looks amazing, it must be pretty deep, makes ours look a bit less exciting LOL, Still it disrupted traffic on the hills and will freeze pretty bad tonight I think.

What a magic day you all had! So cool that you captured all these wonderful shots on film.

Have just shown my boys and they are in awe, lol.

Can't get over Abby in her t-shirt, lol. From my Sth Is. days I do remember it wasn't always that cold when it was snowing, compared to frosty days. But I NEVER got about in a t-shirt. Now way! Kids are amazing.
