Fun in the snow!

Lydia and I went outside today for the first time since it has snowed. It has been too cold to go outside prior to today, so we played for about 45 minutes to an hour. It was so much fun. Lydia loved playing in the snow. Last year (which she had only been home with us for a month or two) she was terrified of the snow. This year...we went out and it was such a different story. She loved the way it felt on her hands when she would go to touch it without her gloves on. She would marvel at the fact that it would melt when it touched her hands.
We also took a good look at individual snowflakes. Ever done that? Seriously cool stuff. Beautiful. God is truly amazing.
Lydia couldn't wait to play with the football in the snow. That is my girl!! We also ran around the entire yard and threw snowballs at eachother. Lydia thought that was hilarious. She also went down her little slide into the snow...she would do that over and over again.
It is so awesome to see her grow and learn new things. She looks at things so intently.
All in all...we had an awesome day. Hopefully we will get more snow. I would really love to make a snowman with her...that would be too cool. She LOVES Frosty the Snowman!
Have a wonderful day!!
