One of the things we prefer about Boise over our beloved Montana is the more mild winter. Last winter we only had two or three snows at our house and only one time did snow stick around and get deep enough to make a little snowman. We kept being told that it was an unusually mild winter, but we loved it. Well let me tell you, last winter must have been unusual because we’ve already had snow at least three times this winter and the last two have lasted overnight. I love looking at the snow, but I hate driving or walking in the stupid crap. Lily loves all of it however. She’s wanted to build another snowman since we did the one last year. So I put on my big-girl-Mama-panties and we went out to play in the freezing snow.
Unfortunately the snow didn’t agree to be snowman worthy. Lily didn’t let this bring her down. She just played and played. Snow angels worked out pretty good and I made three different colored water squirters for her to color the snow. Even without a fantastic snowman my girl had a good time.
I have always loved the look of snow sitting on tree or plants so I took some pictures of the plants in the back yard.
