Let ot Snow!

Our snow finally arrived Tuesday in the wee hours of morning. The girls woke up to no school and the loads of snow they had been praying for. We spent a good chunk of the day sledding down our big hill over and over. Needless to say they slept pretty well after their adventures in the wide world of stark and gorgeous white.

Is it odd that both my girls are still posing while using a friend as a human shield?

Chesterton Quote of the Day
"...White is a color. It is not a mere absence of color, it is a shining and affirmative thing: as fierce as red, as definite as black. When (so to speak) your pencil grows red hot, it draws roses; and when it grows white hot, it draws stars. And one of the two or three defiant verities of the best religious morality - of real Christianity, for example - is exactly this same thing. The chief assertion of religious morality is that white is a color. Virtue is not the absence of vices or the avoidance of moral dangers; virtue is a vivid and separate thing, like pain or a particular smell. Mercy does not mean not being cruel or sparing people revenge or punishment: it means a plain and positive thing like the sun which on has either seen or not seen, Chasitity does not mean abstention from sexual wrong; it means something flaming like Joan of Arc. In a word, God paints in many coulors, but He never paints so gorgeously - I had almost said gaudily - as when He paints in white." 
 -G.K. Chesterton, Tremendous Trifles

Looks like LOADS of fun!! Glad the girls finally got their "snow day."
And, I don't think it's "odd" to pose while using a shield! LOL Stay warm and drink lots of hot cocoa!
