We have had a strangely frigid Spring this year. It could just be that I was recovering from giving birth to Susanna in November but it truly seemed like the longest winter ever! I remembered reading the book "THE LONG WINTER" by Laura Ingalls Wilder as a little girl and thought maybe I understood a little better how the Ingalls family felt!. Well, not really... at least we had running and electricity most of the time and we did make some wonderful memories. These photos were taken just a week and a half before Easter! Grace (age 6) so cracked us up first thing in the morning when she woke up and looked out the window. She proclaimed loudly "TAKE NOTICE WORLD! IT'S SPRING!"
James' creation, I enjoy watching him
work so diligently when he makes a snowman.

Grace age 6 and Mercy age 3.

All the Rich girls!

Exploring the snowy neighborhood. 

The kids and I took a walk to the baseball fields at
Kiwanis Park to play in the snow.

Nothing like a snowy playground!

It began to snow very hard again and we were unable to
walk back with the snow blowing in Susanna's face.
Thankfully Daddy was in town and able to come rescue us.

We all thoroughly enjoyed yet another batch of
snow cream for the year.

Isaac worked on his looking kit alot:-)

Mercy and I made this snowman
together! We had to make him look
a little beachy since it was so close
to summer:-).

Isaac's creation, no he still can't hardly
open his eyes in the sun! Not sure if
he ever will. 

Precious Susie in her cable knit toboggan
that I just loved on her. 

Grace made this snowman all by
herself and it totally put a smile on my face. I love Grace's little bubbly personality:-).
