First Snow of the Season

Today we woke up to the first snow of the season. It was nice wet sticky snow, perfect for snowballs, snowmen and playing in - and warm enough outside to go out.

I took Charlie and Max out to Sherwood Park to play with their cousins Brooklyn and Anson for a couple of hours. There was more snow there - 30 minutes from their place - than there was in Edmonton.

Brooklyn and Charlie wasted no time going out into the back yard to play. They started out building a snowman but didn't get very far on that project and ended up throwing snow at each other.
Brooklyn scooped up a huge handful of snow


Charlie and Brooklyn had a standoff...

Then Charlie came up with a much larger handful of snow and all bets were off....


Snow flew through the air.


Charlie liked it...


Brooklyn tried rolling the world's biggest snowball.


Charlie changed tactics and created a snow angel.


Brooklyn thought it was just a big laugh.

Anson...


just wanted to eat the snow. A great start to winter this year.

LOVED the pictures! Ohhh, so envious! The snow looks like SOOO much fun. Brings out the child in me that wants to make a snow angel or have a snowball fight. We don't get snow in these parts, but we're going to N. Carolina in Jan for our honeymoon - I'm praying for snow - would make it extra special!

Kids and snow, it just doesn't get much better for photo sessions than that. I wish I could have been there for the snowball fight. I can't remember the last time it snowed down here in the deep south.
