As I mentioned here, the month of January brought some unusually warm weather. It was great, but now all of our beautiful snow is gone. Almost everything melted. We used to have piles and piles of snow in our yard. What’s left is pretty ugly. We have a few gravel covered snow piles in the shady parts of the yard. Yuck. We did get a little dusting of snow last night but that doesn’t count.
Back when we had snow, Lillian enjoyed playing in it. Below are some pictures of her playing outside during a snowstorm in December. I took her out while Blake was snowblowing. I meant to sit her down on top of a snow pile to play. The snow was so soft and fluffy that her legs went straight down into the pile. She was stuck in the pile up to her waist in a standing position. She immediately started laughing and waving her hands around like crazy… so I left her. She played in the pile for a long time, taking a few breaks to check out what her dad was doing. Seriously, there’s not much cuter than a baby in a bomber hat.
The next picture was taken a day or two later. This was the view coming down the road from our house. I took the picture with my crappy iPhone and did not edit it. Gorgeous, right?!
On a completely unrelated note, Lillian crawled across her bedroom on Tuesday. Since she finally crawled from one end of a room to the other, we are marking it down as officially crawling. Let the games of cat and mouse begin!
