The enthusiasm was high to begin with, evident by Josh making a snow angel, in his boxers, at 6 am. The snow came down so quickly in the early hours that we got 3-4 inches in just an hour. The kids and dogs were frolicking around the front yard, while Mike shoveled the driveway (which he would have to do again in just a couple hours). Josh's enthusiasm was outdone by our neighbor girls, who decided to build their snowman while wearing their swimsuits. I was chilled to the bone just watching them! We then did some sledding on our local hill (which was not nearly as conducive to sledding as it was back in Nov.), and snowman making in the front yard (but not as good as these creations from the past). After recovering in the afternoon by watching movies, snow was gathered outside to make Snow Ice Cream, which was quickly devoured; that's when boredom set in.
