What a Fun day!

It seems like only yesterday I was posting about building snowmen and here we are again.
Well Rileys prayers were answered last night - Loads of Snow!!!
Now apparently (so Riley tells me) if you say 2 prayers at night, one to god and the other to jesus, then it should come true, because if god is too busy answering more important requests, then Jesus will answer your prayers for you.
So this is what we got today, 5 inches of soft white fluffiness. I decided not to take the children to school, as the lanes are a nightmare. So it was a day of fun instead.

It was great!!! So of course we had to build a snowman. First the dinkies asked for a castle, with water around and turrets. Then Poppi insisted on having a princess in it, Riley wanted a King, so they argued while I started building.
Eventually they decided that they would join in and actually a snowman could be quite cool, if we gave him windmill arms.

After about 15 minutes Riley decided it would be far more fun to try and attack me. Having the camera on zoom, I could see he was trying to spy exactly where I was.

I am not very patient when it comes to taking photos, but I was quite pleased that I actually caught this shot with the snowball in mid flight.

As for Poppi, well she is very impressed with her new friend (also called Poppi) and waved goodnight to him from her bedroom tonight.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring, but its likely they will be off school again - hooray!!!
Did you enjoy the snow today?
