Snow Angels...

We've been really loving the snow here in Vilseck...at least the part where it falls so beautifully, covers all the brown/gray slush and looks like a winter wonderland...

C'mon already...I want to go OUTSIDE!




We took walks daily for awhile...







But haven't lately as the snow has been mixing with rain which isn't good for the baby girl's footie snowpants which aren't really waterproofed.  BUT, when the snow is falling and the world is winter wonderland white...we love it....and we make sure to play in it.



Sometimes its as simple as gathering large chunks of ice...but her mean stepmom won't let her collect them on the back porch (I've got fears of piles of ice and slush on our back deck for the next 5 years if I let her bring it all home...)




But other times we are lucky enough to see a few angels flying in the sky...



Or leaving their mark on the ground...



And when we're done seeing all there is to see our little family heads home...



Leaving baby shuffle tracks in the snow (with mama's footprint for sizing)



And when we see our house it sparkles with the long icicles hanging from our gutters.



Aaaaaaaaah...We're home...

I love your blog Anna. OK, Bella's language is classic! I love her jibberish she is talking while walking in the snow and the Mahna Mahna is HILlarious! Tell Maddie her and Alana would do a great job "collecting" things like ice blocks together. Sounds so like a 7 year old girl I know:)

I had to watch the video twice because it is so awesome to hear her talking and cracking herself up! I just want to snuggle her up and sing MahnaMahna with her!
