First let me start by saying that I have never seen someone get as excited about the CHANCE of snow as Jennifer got last week. She was pumped that it might snow. Of course, being a member "Gloom and Doom" as I have been described, I said it would not snow more than an inch - if any! Well if you combine the two dustings we got, we might have topped an inch....but I doubt it!!
Anyways, Saturday turned out to be a ton of fun. Sometime right around noon or so we headed over to Craig and Kim's to play with Sara and Davis in the snow. What I thought would be a relaxing day whatching kids in the snow turned into an all out assault by 3 adults on an army of kids from the nieghborhood. Craid, a nieghbor of his and I started a snowball fight with what turned out to be about 15 kids (anwyere from 5 to probably 13 years old). I tried to take it easy on the little kids, but the bigger kids were letting us have it...so naturally we let them have it right back.
Now, the best part was watching Jennifer get nailed with one snowball after another. When we got to Craig and Kim's, Jennifer declared that Craig was going to get it. As any younger sister should know, that declaration opened the door for the older brother to let her have it. Within about 2 minutes of being outside, Craig had Jennifer pinned in the snow and she got to taste the snow for the first time in years. Little did she know, that was not the end of it. She was pelted with several snowballs over the next hour or so.
It was a lot of fun, I only wish that we really could have seen the 5" of snow that the "experts" (a term which I use very lightly) said we would get.
