SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well anytime snow falls in the desert it is monumental! So when we woke up this morning and saw TONS of snow we had to go outside and play! Just yesterday our garden was blooming as normal we've not even had our first frost yet (very odd) so we knew something big would probably happen when it did hit. Still I would never have guessed it would have been this much snow!
We bundled up and went outside to take photos and build a snowman! Then we went for a walk and lucky for us we got to walk in all untrodden snow on our route!
Doesn't he look like the snowman from the movie Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer? I love his little chin that just happened to be there.
Then when we got back from our walk in a wonderful winter wonderland we decided to build another snowman for the front yard!
Cute eh? With a pile of snowballs at the ready for him too!

Oh your lucky to have had enough snow and good snow to have made a couple of snowmen. Ours was to dusty but Zachary and I manage to make a little one to sit on our porch rail. :D

Wow! You did have a lot of snow. We didn't get quite as much. Probably by the time it got to us it was rain. It didn't start snowing here until about 10am and then it took a little bit to start sticking. What adorable snowmen! We are going to have to take the kids to the mountains so they can have enough to make a snowman.
Big Hugs,
Wendy
