Snow

Much to Rosie's delight we've had a large quantity of the white stuff over the last week. I've not been quite so impressed as the snow's been too deep to take the pushchair out and it's been too cold to take Christopher out in the baby carrier unless it's been absolutely essential.

Add in a husband stuck at Munich airport for 36 hours because of snow there and a cold water tank leaking down the bathroom light fitting because the overflow froze... Well lets just say I'll be quite happy not to have any more snow this winter.

Anyway back to much happier things, last Sunday (before we got another couple of feet of snow dumped on us) I got the camera out as Rosie played in the garden.

Look Mummy!

Meanwhile Christopher decided the sensible option was to sleep through it all.

You and me both! I have had enough of the snow as well. I will be glad if we don't have anymore all winter. I hope things improve for you soon.

Lovely photos of the children - Yes I'm already sick of the snow too, and its soooo cold

Melissa said...

Kids and snow - a timeliness combination of fun! As adults though it's a different matter! Hope it lightens up soon for you!

The little lady in those pictures cannot possibly be Rosie. She's getting so big! Awww, isn't it lovely to see them playing in the snow :o) Pelle is like you, though: he's not too fond of the white stuff (but I am!). I hope there won't be any more problems for you this winter, but I've read the papers...

Ugh! Snow! lol! I bet Rosie loved it! I bet your DH hated it! Gosh, he was stuck in that mess, poor thing! I've been hearing about the crazy amounts of snow over there. Hope it stops soon!

Lovely pics! You can count me in with the non-lovers of snow, lol.

Great photos! I'm not a snow lover either - fortunately ours all melted over the weekend and we just have frost and fog today.

Katrina said...

Too sweet!!! We haven't had any snow to speak of so I am jealous ;-).

Paula said...

Cute pictures. I will also be glad to see no more snow.

Cheryl said...

Gorgeous children! We have had so much snow here too. I loved it to start with but im getting fed up now

Sherry :o) said...

I love snow - but I agree, when it causes stress and trouble, it's not fun. I like it when I'm snuggled down with a good book or stitching - watching from inside! Love the out-of-doors pics of your babies!!

Barb said...

Rosie is so grown up and so beautiful! We've had very cold temps and snow here as well. It's coming way too soon this year.

Andrea said...

Awww. I'm thankful that the thaw over the past couple of days has taken our snow away.

We've had plenty of winter here too and the season barely begun! Today was bright and beautiful with no snow - but very cold 25^F. May 2011 bring you much happiness!
