Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life...
Madeline shows off her cute little mini snow man.
Ellie was so happy and quite surprised to discover snow in the kitchen after she got done showering. She had no idea that we got about an inch of snow in the time that it took for her to read me a couple chapters from her book and shower. Oscar was pretty happy to have snow in the house, too.
Katie's reaction to the snow was amusing. She had never played with snow before so she didn't know what to make of it at first. But she had a great time playing with the cold white stuff that her big sister scooped up for her.
We had snow in our house because Madeline wanted her little sisters to be able to play in the snow before it was all gone. So she went outside in her soccer clothes and no shoes, just socks, and scooped up several popcorn containers full of snow with her bare hands to fill a cookie sheet
with enough snow to make a few little snowmen. She was so excited to watch Katie play with snow for the first time. She's really an amazing big sister to Katie [and Ellie when she wants to be].
