A Snow Day Diary...

Here's my boy Ollie in his little white snow suit after a run or two down the hill in our neighbor's yard on his cute infant sled. The big kids thought it was hilarious to watch him go down the hill. Ollie, on the other hand, was a little unsure, but still so stinkin' cute!
But it was a different story entirely when I moved him to the hill in our back yard and put him on the lap of his favorite friend.  They had a great time going down the hill together, including the time they ended up in a heap at the bottom of the hill with Ollie flailing like a wiggly white marshmallow on Hannie's chocolate colored coat {s'mores, anyone?}.

Ollie is utterly obsessed with Miss Hannie, and I couldn't be more pleased.  It's payback for her not getting the sister she always wanted.  Instead she has a baby brother who lights up whenever he hears her voice or sees her walking in a room.  They play together, she dresses and changes him, they snuggle and rock and just get along like two life-long pals.  It makes my heart happy.  So do these freckles.
And this little snow guy, made by the RedDog.  Seriously.  Look at that happy little face.  I don't care what anyone says {especially my older brother}.  Snow days are happy days.  The end.

My little guy and my oldest daughter (9 yrs difference) are exactly the same! Not wanting to sound stereotypical or sexist, the girls really do know how to nurture at a young age!

I love everything about this post but mostly the happy red checked faces of my Hannie B and Owlie. Right now that snowman and I have the same expression on our faces.

Your snow day warms my heart. Hannie B is one striking snow bunny and Owlie is one cute snow bundle.

Ollie's little body bundled up in the snow outfit is just ridicously adorable. I can't get enough of these snow pictures!

Snow days are magical as a kid. They can be magical as an adult, too. Just grab your camera and go to town!

Those pictures are adorable! I love to see kids enjoying the snow...it makes all the headaches of dealing with it as an adult worth it. Keep the camera ready...looks like more is headed our way!

Snowdays....How I do remember how a small fluff would shut down an entire city! However, I hear you guys have had a downpour this year. Looks like you are making the most of it--good on you!! I absolutely LOVE this post of Little Olie on his own sled. I also absolutely love that you dare put him on his own sled....must not be made in China or you would have already known if it too had safety issues (:! Hugs!
