Snow Day Fun and my Little Helpers in Shoveling Snow

When we had the very first  snowfall this year, the children's school was cancelled/closed so   to give them some things to do, we went out to the drive way and shoveled the snow.  It was  freezing that day so  we made sure to bundle up good so we won't get sick.  
 Children doesn't really care about the freezing weather as long as they can play, that's what matter.
 Just looking at these photos is making me so cold already already even though I am drinking a cup of my hot  ginger tea.  I am always cold, when the temperature is below  50, I am cold.  My husband calls my hands "ice cold hands" because they are always cold.  Luckily, I married a guy whose hands are always warm so we  compliment perfectly.
 I love that aside from playing they always want to help me shovel the snow.  Shoveling snow is a great exercise.  I think I burned more calories shoveling snow  than walking in the treadmill.
 I don't mind the snow as long as the wind is not blowing but when it is, it is bitter cold and I can't stand it.
 I can tell that the  kids have  strong immune system  now  because they seldom get sick.  Those regular long walks that my family did over the summer and eating healthy  helps  them build a stronger immunity.
 We live a block away from their school so we walk every school days, rain or shine, freezing or not.   They are  great troopers!
 My little man is all about playing but the little miss always wants to make snowman when she's out  there with  snow.
 Lolo Don, our neighbor, was shoveling snow that day too so the kids  extended their fun and   went at their yard.
 Rylie helped Lolo shoveled the  walkway.
 I always want to take pictures of  my kids with our neighbors because they truly are like our family.  They treat my kids like their own grand kids.  Not many people are blessed with great neighbors so I am always thankful that we are blessed with them.
 That is one  of the two things I love in this place, the reason why I  am conflicted of moving to another place.  Our neighbors are great!
Anyway, our adventured  was put to a halt when the strong wind started blowing  and the snow was getting in our faces.  Their faces were so pink when they got inside.  They took a hot bath and they were fine.  Hot coco also warmed our bodies after the fun outside.

Isn't it great when they are old enough to help shovel? Mine were out there helping this year, too!

Kids love the snow! Let them enjoy it while they're young. Now that I am older, I am content looking at it through my window while I stay warm and cozy inside. Lovely family you have there!

It looks so fun! I wish we could get a little snow down here in Texas.

Coralie said...

We get so much snow here, but never get a snow day. It's crazy. BUT my kids love the snow and we always seem to make it to where we need to go. It looks like you had a lot of fun!

Heather Lawrence said...

I have to admit I am a little jealous! We have had next to no snow this winter and the kids are really missing it. Sledding and skating are the best parts of winter if you ask me!!
