We Saw a Snowflake

We don't see a lot of snow here where we call home, so when the forecast calls for it, we watch the skies and do snow dances, and I'm pretty sure there is some praying by pleading kids.  And when it finally, finally arrives, no matter how fleeting, we enjoy it. Tremendously.  

Our backyard farmyard babies were born in the summer, so this was their first snow.  By all observations, they were most certainly not impressed.  My girls were ecstatic.  My chickens and piggy...not so much.

Annabelle the Polka Dot Pig reluctantly ventured out into the cold, white stuff for a few peanut butter treats and was ready to return to her house and her cozy straw.  

"I do not want to build a snowman. A mudman, perhaps, but not a snowman."  

I was so happy it snowed for the girls. I think it's lovely, but honestly, their excitement is the best. I'm also thankful for the extra time at home with them. It's my favorite. 

Have you seen the Disney movie Frozen? It's a beautiful little story about two sisters, and I think that's why I loved it so much.  These days, I have my own Anna and Elsa ♥ Except sometimes they both want to be Elsa. So, the munchkin pretends to be Baby Elsa while the big girl is grownup Elsa. Every day is an adventure.

And our time in the snow was not complete without a few spontaneous tunes from the movie, naturally.

Then we came inside, and they begged for Icee pops. 
Not even kidding.

I don't care how old you get, snow days are so much long as you get to stay home and enjoy them ;)  
We hope you're having a blessed and beautiful week!
