Did you hear about the snow in the Twin Cities yesterday? We officially got 11 inches and it was super wet (and it melted a bit today, but it will not melt anymore this week, I hear). This first photo was taken from our front door.
I had a retreat at church on Saturday for moms of kids with special needs. No, they don't cancel stuff up here for a snowfall like this! It was a great day at the church. Mark told me before I left that he was going to try taking the boys' Christmas photo in the backyard while it was snowing (aka, he wasn't going to wait for me to come home). Hm. Okay. Have fun with that. He texted me at noon and called it the "Bah Humbug" photo shoot.
So... Matthew was not excited by the snow AT ALL.
And then a branch above them dropped a bit of snow on their heads.
Micah was getting pretty mad by this point.
Small success in getting Matthew to stop crying
But it didn't last long
The wind is picking up and snow is falling in faces
And finally, Nathan screams, "It's COLD!!!"
Are you waiting for me to share the perfect shot? Ha! We'll let you know when we attempt this project again. Though I confess I'm considering using one of the above shots for the Christmas card. :-)
