To usher in the first day of Spring, Father Winter threw a major temper tantrum! Our winter storm began last Friday night and didn’t let up until early Sunday morning…officially the 2nd day of Spring. We got approximately 8 inches where I live.
So, to make the most of this frosty situation, the little ones and I celebrated the arrival of Spring with snowball fights, snowman building and snow-angel making!
Here we are dressed in our favorite REINDEER sweater on the first day of spring!
Here’s Mary posing with her BRAND NEW mittens that I purchased in November and that we only recently found in March! We just used a pair from last season as I didn’t want to buy a 2nd pair. Notice the little touch of MARCH…peacock feather hair bow!
Until this latest snowstorm…we had been enjoying mild temperatures and some rain…making for a messy backyard. Little man does not like to get dirty and so he had been insisting on wearing snow boots until I bought him some new rain boots. This is what they looked like for this freak springtime snowstorm!

My own two snow angels…
Snowball fight in action…Ben just got big sister and is sneaking away!
Mary’s attempt at snowman building as the snow was melting quicker than she could roll…it is Springtime for goodness sakes!
Clearly, it’s time for someone to take a nap…not that this little one naps anymore! In addition to a winter storm over Mary Catherine’s Spring Break from school, both of my kiddos came down with cold/flu like symptoms…yuck!
