this morning we woke up to...

SNOW!

Finley didn't know what to think of all that snow! Nearly 3 inches, but it was still coming down hard! We had over-slept for church (whoops!), but Kenton attempted to make it there anyway. He made it out the driveway, but decided it wasn't the wisest thing to do. The road was covered with inches of snow! So we bundled up & got ready to play!

Our street in the background, covered in snow. You can just barely see Kenton's tire tracks, where he stopped & backed right up. :)


Quite a different experience at the playground than we had last week.


Our little house with so much snow! So pretty.


Tackling Daddy.
We went out to play a second time when Mummi & Pappa Henry came over.


Finn was getting pretty cold & tired at this point.


Some of the snow flakes were really big!

After Finn's nap, we walked to Golden Garden ponds (very near our house). This was our third time playing outside today! It had stopped snowing & we were able to stay pretty dry. We brought our sled & found some fun hills.


Blue sky peaking through the clouds.


Yay for snow! We were so excited to get so much. We always consider ourselves lucky if we get to see any snow in Eugene. So today was a wonderful treat! And Finley loves the snow. He calls it "no"...at least, I think he's trying to say snow. He could just be telling me no. :\

I'm sure he's trying to say "snow!"
Finn looks like he is really enjoying the white stuff.

Wow! That looks like a lof of snow! I'm so jealous! :( We've been having a lot of cold and rainy weather here lately, but snow would be so much better!
