SNOW! More bean creativity, snow angels, snow mermaids, snow pricesses...

So, although we seemed to be the ONLY family in all of Amman out playing in the snow, the beans had an awesome time! The beans finished breakfast, suited up in 3 or 4 layers, and headed out into the snow. Our first spot (the empty lot across the street) was too windy with blowing sleety snow. So, we moved back in front of our garage where there was some protection against the rain for the kids. Then they got into the spirit with ButterBean gathering and tossing lightly packed snowballs, Junior Bean helping make snow people parts, and JujuBean giving directions from the comfort of the covered carport...

Here are some shots of our fun...

First, the snow people, a snow mermaid for JujuBean...

and a snow princess for ButterBean...

And then a snow angel (I think this one JujuBean Angel)...

We didn't get any shots of the Beans just after the snow hanging out on the edge of the carport roof came charging down onto their heads... The expressions were priceless. It was soft and lightly packed, so no harm, no foul. ButterBean took a bunch right on the top of her hood. I dried her face and then she realized how funny it was. Luckily no icicles so nothing dangerous. Now all those folks who thing I was crazy to buy such winter-y garb see why I did it. We came home with super big "puffer" coats for the kids and the kind of gloves intended for playing in the snow (in addition to the long johns). Great investments this year!

Last pic is a snapshot of the Beans...


We had an awesome day in the snow and are wishing you...

Happy Snow People!

Welcome and please know we aren't rubbing it in. In fact, it's just our youthful (HA!) exhuberance making us keep talking about it... We had a great time and are now firmly installed in the nice warm house watching the other crazies out of the windows!

You were right MommaBean. Your snow people are as cute as my snow babe, and the fact that they were made by The Beans makes them even cuter.

There I said it. I dare anyone to say I am too competitive now! ;)

Enjoy the rest of the day...
