Brrr Brrr Baby

We had a ton of snow fall this last weekend. We had over a foot of snow fall in a matter of 2.5 days! It is definitely a winter wonderland. The cold didn't come until Monday, so we took Cora out for some snow fun on Sunday. I can't believe I just wrote this last sentence. When I say the cold hadn't hit yet, that means it was 3F outside! I have been in Edmonton much too long. I think it is only -4 or -5 out right now, and Cora and I have been out and about all morning long. I have definitely digressed.

So, we took Cora out in the snow to play. The snow was so deep it was past her waist. Good thing she didn't sink all the way down to the bottom because it very well might have been over her head. I had to keep picking Reggie up so he didn't get completely buried in the snow. We taught Cora how to make snow angels. We buried her legs and arms. It was so much fun. It certainly took me back to the days when I could play outside for hours and never get bored.

Lee shovelling the back deck off. The snow is so high that he standing even with the seat of the bench.

There isn't much need for stairs when the snow is almost as high as the deck. Reggie is actually having fun at this point. He gets cold quick these days.

Snow angels!

I love this photo!

This is the front yard. The shrub that is barely poking out of the snow is nearly a two foot tall plant.
