Do not grow slack in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in tribulation, steadfast in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the holy ones, exercise hospitality. ~ Romans 12:11-13

Patience is a Virtue {When will we get sticky snow?}

When this snow fell a week ago, my youngest kids (Abby, Naomi, and Caleb) were excited to build a snowman! But sadly, it was too light and fluffy. It was totally worthless for making a snowman. Now that it sat for a few days in the warmer weather it's nice and sticky. So they sank their glove-covered hands into the cold, white joy of making a "Snow Princess"!  

 And here is the "snow princess"!
don't think Caleb's old enough to understand "princess" or he may have not liked his older sisters saying it was a girl!
He sure didn't look like he cared as he stood in front of the woodstove and warmed himself from his "princess" creating. Once I removed his wet coat and gloves, he was a very proud little fellow as he marched to find a blanket so he could warm-up.

Oh and here is another snow sculpture:
Joshua and Elizabeth created a snow turtle! Isn't he cute!?

P.S. It snowed again today, so the "Snow Princess" and the "Snow Turtle" are now buried in 5 inches of more white stuff! But the kids were outside again today and they now have few more snow-buddies!
