The kids made it out into the garden, our snowy wonderland. Demands of snowman making were filling the freezing air while the dogs were running around our feet in some insane dance.
The girls crunched through knee deep snow onto the lawn as Busby froze to the spot amazed at the degree of cold he was standing within.
We tried to make a snowman, but the snow was too fine, try as we might we couldn't get the snow to stay together. We gave up and replaced it with snow swishing and whooshing.
Slide now clear of all snow, Poppy decided a full-blown snow clear-up was in order. Meanwhile Busby was still frozen to the spot.
Tilly began to struggle with the cold after about 5 minutes, a little bit of snow clearing and she was done.
Poppy on the other hand was on a mission and her enthusiasm soon dragged in her little brother's interest...and so the snow clean-up began.
Scooter unearthed and Busby became distracted by his insistence that he really really could ride it through the snow.
Meanwhile in the background Tilly watched from the window, full of concern and fear for our safety in the evil cold. Three kids in the snow...their unique personalities and magic bouncing back from the glittery surface of a winter wonderland.
