So close to this time 2 years ago, it snowed pretty heavily where we live. Since we are the desert, there are time when it snows, but it doesn't usually stick or stay around for awhile. This year, on January 3rd, it snowed and stayed! It began while we were at church and as the day went on, it never stuck to the ground. I later that evening had to go into work for a few hours, and had Donald drop me off. I can drive in the snow {did it in Idaho Falls} but it was just easier for him to have to pick me up and drop me off. When my shift was over, I exited work and the entire town was covered in white wonderland! It was so pretty! We drove home and Logan was super excited how much snow there was and kept saying that he wanted to make a snowman. {How does he know that a snow man is a necessity during snowfall? haha} Since it was dark and cold, I told Logan that we could play in it the next day. That next morning, he woke up and ran to the window. He shouted, "IT'S STILL HERE!". So I told him that he needed to have breakfast and that he needed to change into warmer clothes. I have never seen this kid eat so fast! I was dreading the cold, but it actually wasn't too bad. Since our house is on a huge plot of land, there was plenty room for us to run around. Logan has a blast. He was throwing snowballs, making snow angels, and even attempted a snowman on his own, but couldn't quite get it to stay. So he made a small one and by the time it took me to run inside to grab the camera, the snowman was no longer with us. haha.
For the past couple days, Logan wakes up every morning and looks out the window to see if snow is still there. Since some of the property is heavily shaded, there still is snow. He tries to run out there, but I quickly tell him that it is more like ice than snow. He doesn't care, he just wants to throw it at me! {Such a boy!} I enjoy the snow in small amounts, but I actually look forward to the spring and summer weather. The beach is just calling my name...

***The picute of Logan outside is when I was at work... Donald dressed him. The rest is from Logan and I playing the day after.
