Snowy Sunday Afternoon

What do you do on a snowy Sunday afternoon in Alaska??

You make your first snowman of the 2008 winter. (yep Oct 5th, the first snow was Oct 2nd though - not enough for a snowman) Realize what fun could be had - get into snowgear and head out for some major fun!
You go sleding on the nearest hill you can find!
You make a snowangel

Make your second snowman - Henry - a much bigger snowman. While we loved our first snowman we realized that he was pretty dinky so we had to make a bigger and better one!! All the cold weather gear the military gave Jon has come in handy. We were not cold at all while playing outside. Jon got a little wet since he wore his adidas running pants so I could wear the snow pants (what a nice husband), but our jackets were amazing!

And then you back upstairs to your living room
and sit by the fire and eat ice cream!

sounds like you guys had a great day. I wish I was there to join in the fun. I hope you are feeling better Ashley. Miss you guys.

Heeheehee! You guys are so funny! We spent the afternoon napping after a long day at church and Justin cleared out the other side of the garage so he could pull his truck in. I am hoping to get my snow tires on this week and go find those Yak Tracks!

Sounds like you are having a great time enjoying AK. Jon is clearly a great husband - giving up his snow gear for you.
Loved your snow people. Just think what large ones you will be able to build in Jan.
Sitting by the fire eating ice cream sounds like the perfect end to an outdoor adventure playing in the snow.

Great fun! and to think I was excited about crisp mornings! I feel cooled off just looking at the fun. Glad you guys got to have fun in the first snow.

Ash, I hope that wasnt' you sliding down the hill on your belly! Poor Molly! Just kiddin - we know it wasn't you!

Jon- that was a pretty dinky first snowman, but that's the usual size of Texas snowmen.

Ashley- I hope you are having loads of fun time. You could make snow cones from the snow outside and then it would be a true SNOW cone! FUN! Or you could just throw snowballs at Jon every time- just keep a stash hidden away.
