The Snowball Fight

We've had snow on the ground for a good month now. When it was freshly fallen my "kids" all had an epic snowball fight in our backyard. They started by building opposing snow forts, but soon left their fortifications for hand-to-hand combat.
They were pretty worn out by the battle's end, but, oh, did this mother's heart smile!

Looks like fun! But I bet you are getting pretty tired of that snow after a month... I wish we would get a little here!

You got some great photos, as always!

Sung to a Sesame tune: 'Four of these kids are kinda the same, one of these kids doesn't belong here, now it's time to play our game, time to play our game.'

Humm which kid is different???

Yep, the one WITHOUT a coat...burrrrrr!!!

Now that looks like good old fashion FUN!!! This post warmed my heart and made me smile!!!

Ah, Julie. What a great day. David must have been working pretty hard to feel the need to remove his coat, though!!

Those are some great photos and some great memories. Sorta made me cry a little, seeing all your big kids!!

I was talking to my son the other day (the one that lives in Provo) and he was telling me about the cold temps and snow you've been getting. We wish we had some of that on this side of the mountains. We've only had a trace of snow and last week the temps were in the high 60's. We need the moisture so bad! Still... those 60 degree days were pretty awesome. ;o)

I'm glad they are having so much fun in it. It's starting to wear on me, or at least the bitter cold is. Oh to be young again!

Hi. I nominated you for a Liebster award. It's kind of like a chain award. I was nominated and then was asked to nominate others and I picked you as part of it. The woman who nominated me, whose link is on my site, has more of the rules but you can access my part of it here: http://cygnusopus.blogspot.com/

It's entirely up to you if you want to follow up with it.
