spring snow

We had quite the spring storm Saturday night! It was loud and made the power flicker on and off a few times in the night, but in the morning it was this bright, amazing, snowy wonderland!

 I love a good storm when you don't have anywhere to go, perfect for a Sunday.

 It was also the day that we got to stay home and watch church in our pajamas! The boys played conference bingo, which kept them intrigued for all of 20 minutes, but it's a start.

 I made sticky buns and Adam made omelets- it was quite the Sunday brunch.
 During the 2 hour break between sessions, we bundled up and headed out to play in the (last?) big snow.
 It was so bright out there!
 Can you believe that blue sky? Such a beautiful day!
 I love how the ice is clinging to the branch by one little bud...

 The boys think every snowstorm means a snow buffet.

 Even Linc didn't complain about getting bundled and walked perfectly in his boots instead of acting like there were weights stuck to his feet like in the past. He still didn't want mittens though.

 The storm blew in sideways from the West, so this side of our house got slammed.

 Elliott's game of throwing snowballs up and crushing them midair.

 Ollie has perfected the art of snow eating.

 The clouds moved back in so fast and it started to snow again! Crazy weather.

Is there anything better than fluffy white clouds against a bright blue sky?
We even got Daddy to come out for a few minutes.

I love a spring snowstorm because it's almost a novelty again. And it melts fast so it never turns into dirty snow. And I'm actually sad that winter went by so fast! I had lots more wintry outdoors fun on my to-do list. I guess it'll have to wait until next winter... and the next...

You got some gorgeous shots! I was mad when I saw the snow. I should have taken some pictures. It was pretty but my poor daffodils.

Awesome pictures, but oh how I hate the snow. This storm left me very sad. At least your family could find joy in it!!
