Snow Day!

So . . . I'm kind of ready for spring. But it appears that Mother Nature has other ideas.

This morning the girls were a little more than excited to wake up to this:


It didn't take long for them to haul out the snow bibs, mittens, hats, coats, and boots . . .


. . . and settle in to some fun with the white stuff.


My little budding photographer. Sierra always has her camera with her. I love it :)


Kam was immediately intrigued by the snow.


Hmmm, what can I do with this stuff?


A little taste perhaps?




After an hour or so of traipsing through the "forest", making snow angels, and other such fun, we were ready to go inside . . .


and enjoy some hot cocoa.

{And y'all can refrain from commenting on how grown up Kam looks in this photo, k? Where did my baby go???}


Oh, but before I go . . . see this? This house here . . .

It's finished.

We're just waiting on a heat vent or two, a couple of inspections, and {oh yeah} the appraisal to come back.

Prayers for all of the above {actually, no need to pray about heating vents, lol!} are always greatly appreciated. I probably don't have to mention what a stressful time this is for us as we await a whole bunch of decisions that we have very little control over.

Give it to God. Give it to God.

I'm really trying.

First of all, the house is awesome! I think I will pray about the heating vents, LOL!

The girls look so adorable! What a fun day out in the snow. We had rain all day long.

The snow pics are gorg of course! It kinda makes me cold looking at them though.

Did you make sure that wasn't yellow snow she was eating? Just checking.

YAY on the house!!!!! Prayers comin' your way!

Happy Friday!

Lay it all out before Him!!! I can't help but say how BIG Kam is...she is just so adorable. I am so excited about the house and I can't wait for the tour (hint, hint). Waiting for Spring here too :)

I don't like playing in snow. :(

The house is gorgeous!!! And I love the pictures of the snow. Even though I am getting just a wee bit tired of snow...I do live in Minnesota! :)

Have a wonderful Friday!!

LOVE the house!!! Can't wait to see the inside since it's finished!

Praying for you guys!

The pictures are gorgeous!! I love snow pics. The natural lighting is awesome.

And I won't say ONE word about how grown-up Kam looks...not one single word.

Foursons said...

Oh my gosh, the house is FINISHED!!!! I am so excited for you! Please, please, please take pictures for us.

And I can't help it, but Kam looks like she aged overnight in that shot. Tell her to stop it already.

You need to come visit me. I got sunburned while I ate my lunch outside today. It was heavenly.

I am so with you on the snow. We are actually getting 70 degree weather today, though they say we might get storms tonight. I guess I will deal with that as we all needed to get outside.
The house is looking great!

Such fun in the snow!

House is gorgeous...praying all goes well and you will be moving in soon!

I know you're on the edge of your seat! The last two times we have built we have lived with my husband's grandmother (which is no easy task and hardly worth the free rent) and I know the anticipation you're feeling! Makes me want to build again. (... if current house ever sells...)
