Sunday is snow fun!

Finally, the temps have warmed above freezing! It feels so "warm" that people around here are going to be putting the tops down on their cars and opeing windows! Not really, but it a lot better than negative temps and teens. Temps made it to the mid 30's today. With the warmer temps the snow is finally wet enough to pack and make a snowman. Natalie and I went out and made two snowmen and then I built a snow "castle" for her. Whew! That's a lot of work moving all that snow around, but well worth it! As always, we had to color our snowmen and fort. The way we make everything colored is by mixing food coloring water in a spray bottle and then spray our snow. It's fun to write in the snow also...great for days when the snow isn't good for packing.

Yes, it's actually sunny out today also...Natalie's eyes are squinted it's so bright out. Seems ever brighter when it's been cloudy for a month.

Love the pink and blue snowmen! We do not get many chances for snowmen in Texas. Usually ice!
