Let it Snow!


It's hard to believe only a few weeks ago, I was complaining about having a "snowless" winter.  Now we have about 12 inches of snow on the ground due to a blizzard and some other random snow days. 

My colleagues at work want it to end, but while they're praying for an early spring, I'm secretly wishing for a few more weekends of white stuff.  It's fun to play in the snow, and it's even more fun to play in the snow on a day when I would normally have to be at work!

Here are just a few pictures of our 2015 winter adventures both at home and at Woodbury Ski area.

A quick winter shot of Lewie sitting outside on our snowy porch.

Daddy building a snow man.  (We helped, but it was definitely his project!)

Our long, skinny, pine tree from our side yard.  It was once a Christmas tree of ours from the 1980's.
 (Yes, I still live in the same childhood home.  I'll write a post about that someday.)

Playing around when he's supposed to be helping Daddy with the snowman.

Riding on the "magic carpet" to go snow tubing.

I wish I could have taken more action shots of us snow tubing, but quite honestly, standing at the bottom of the mountain put me right in the "line of fire" so to speak.  The tubers were basically bowling balls, and I was the pin ready to be knocked down at any moment from all directions...

While snow tubing has definitely been the highlight of our winter so far, I must say that our snowball fight at home came in a close second.  It was Daddy against Little Lewie and me, and Daddy kept winning by using his Ninja moves to throw us down in the snow. 

I couldn't fight back because quite honestly, I couldn't stop laughing.  Heck, I was laughing so hard, I couldn't even stand up...  Little Lewie made me laugh even harder because he kept saying, "Look Mommy, I'm protecting us," but the reality was that his little snow balls weren't even hitting a target...  We were no match for Daddy; he definitely had the upper hand.  Still, one day, the tables will turn...


  1. I'm happy you've gotten to enjoy all your snow and I totally want to go snow tubing! We keep getting just enough to annoy but not enough to have any fun with :(

  2. Snow tubing looks so fun! We haven't had any measurable snow here...yet. That could change though. You got sweet pictures!

  3. Oh, how fuuuun! There's nothing like those east coast snow dumps! Snow can be so incredibly pretty. So glad you got to get out and enjoy it. The tubing sounds like a blast. And I totally get those precious moments at home making the best memories as a family. Here's to another month of winter!

  4. 12 inches, wow! I guess it was saving up for you! I feel the same way about Utah right now, NO SNOW this year? It is so odd. Maybe I just jinxed myself and we will get a huge dump too haha Looks like you had a really fun snow day!


  5. Wow! That's SO much snow to get in such a short amount of time! I love that you're making the best of it! We never did go tubing when we lived in the snow, so hopefully I can make it happen when we have our snowy cabin getaway in a couple weeks! Love that you're making the most of your snow! The snowball fight sounds like too much fun!!

  6. It looks like you enjoyed all that snow! Great pictures!
