It started snowing late yesterday afternoon. I didn't tell the girls it was expected because they would have been totally gutted if it didn't happen. Such was the fear that they would wake in the morning and it could all be gone that Emily was out last night making the most of it.
|Getting this child back in side was the only problem.|
|We woke up to this.|
Pure joy emanated from the children in this house.
|And then the snowball fight commenced.|
|Some had snowballs bigger than others.|
Taken from the safety of the upstairs window.
I'm no fool!
|Snowmen of all sizes...|
|... appeared in the front garden.|
|A walk through the village showed it looking completely beautiful.|
|Now if only the |
to drive by Helen and I at speed in the slush!
|Angels appeared everywhere we went.|
|The rest of the weekend was taken up with|
ice cream making.
|And bread making by my own little baker.|
Both Saturday and Sunday.
