You know... instead of "February." It was the month of tons of white stuff falling from the sky!

The dogs didn't seem to mind at all.
They like to lay in the snow and roll around in it. They don't care if it's snowing and blowing. Crazy dogs!
The night of February 5 was our first BIG snow. It was several inches but the wind made some of the drifts even higher. Sarah was unsure of the deep snow.
Daddy is showing her how to make a snow angel.
After shoveling a bit, the play slide is almost covered up.
Sarah appreciates when her neighbors clear the sidewalks. Abby prefers to trek through the their yards.
A few days later, we got several more inches. The cousins came over to play. Micah made a tunnel by the play slide.
Sarah is having more fun in the snow now.
Abby still loves the snow!

Sledding is also lots of fun and we went several times this past month.
Having a cousin help you carry the sled up the hill is always nice.
Because of the cold, that first snow never completely went away. It just served as a base for the continuing snow showers throughout the month. Last Sunday (the last day of February) Timmy came over and helped the girls build snowmen in the back yard. It was the perfect consistency.
The first one - he's tall, like Daddy.
Ta Da!
They continued to make more. I took these from the upstairs window.
Looks like it's going to be another big one.
A little one, like Abby.
A little family of snow people.
The next day, one had already fallen. And later in the day the other big one fell as well.
Dear Snow,

Thank you for coming to play in February. You provided lots of fun and good times. And it was pretty to watch you fall from the sky. However, I did not enjoy shoveling you out of the driveway multiple times. But it did provide some strength training and, on occasion, a little cardio.

But now, it's March. And I would like for you to melt and go away, please. Thank you.

I love your snowmen!
I have yet to make one with the kids! just shoveling it is enough for me! I hate the cold!

How fun! We haven't had that much and I'm very thankful.

Those are really good snowmen! Do you think Mr. Snow will listen to you or at least take your plea into consideration before the next snowfall?
