What a beautiful snowy day it is here.  I love the snowfall but not the cold.  Yesterday the boys were testing the snow to see if it was ready to make snowballs.  They had a clear goal in mind, Nathan even scouted out the refrigerator for the perfect carrot.  It was time to build a snowman.. So after snow pants, hats, coats, and gloves, they were out the door.  I think they forgot there mission because there is no snowman sitting out in front of our house.  Boys, instead they were outside throwing snowballs at each other having a blast. Gotta love the rambunctious group of boys that are my kiddos. I just love when they come in the door with rosie red cheeks, but most of all I love that they are building memories with each other.

 I can't help but think of what it would be like to add Nellie to the mix.  I can see her face glued to the window watching the boys in the wonders of the cold white stuff, squirming to go out there with them. I can just imagine now, that the boys will take her outside and lovingly play in the snow with her, and actually help her  make snow angels.  No throwing snowballs at their little sister. I can so see Nathan taking her hand and walking her inside when she gets cold and making her a cup of hot chocolate.  Lord willingly we will have her here next year.  I can't wait to watch her grow and experience life.   Have a feeling that in real life they might be throwing snowballs at her too!!


  1. Such a sweet thought, Beth! I bet Nellie will bring out the protective instinct in your boys, though. :)
