Memphis Snow!

It seems like I jinxed the weather in my last post. I made a comment about how the weather has been gorgeous lately. As a result, we got around 4 inches of snow yesterday. Who would believe that Memphis in March got snow. The whole city shut down for the marvelous event. School was canceled and so were most of the churches in our area.

Early this morning, before the snow could have a chance to melt, we went outside and had a great time.

Hyrum went nuts in the snow. He loved every minute and didn't want to come inside. He enjoyed using his creativity in helping dad make a snowman. He loving called the snowman Lorri. He thought it was silly when mom taught him how to do a snow angel. Hyrum thought the snow tasted very yummy and most likely had a piece of snow in his hand that he was always working on. He loved throwing snowballs at mom and dad.

Ben and Emmy were curious. Emmy loved getting her gloves on. Ben seemed to enjoy eating the snow as well as playing in it. Emmy, as you can see, didn't like to eat the snow but enjoyed watching us play.

how fun that you were able to have a snow day-you shoudl find some comfort in knowing that it will go away, unlike Utah. I also loved the last post about the flowers Hyrum gave you. Those are the moments that make parenting so sweet-I love it.Thanks for sharing
