Good-bye Snow!

Today we said good-bye to this little fellow below. The snow is officially gone around here and replaced by two days of 80 degree weather! Seriously! We had a blizzard last week with a foot of snow and wind chills of -31 degrees. This week, we've had to break out the short sleeves and flip flops! I had the air conditioning on in my car today, but refused to turn it on in my house. Crazy Oklahoma weather for sure.

Hannah's little snowman. She created him out of one of the last piles of snow a few days ago. Only his carrot nose was left in the grass today. Though it was short, he lived a good life.

I will say there are plenty of good things about warm weather in February. Mainly that we have had our windows open for two days now and our house smells incredibly fresh and spring-like AND we've been playing outside like crazy. It feels good to fill our lungs and pump our legs after being cooped up for a few weeks. This evening we had played a few rounds of "Mother May I?" and a few games of soccer (which is really just running and screaming and chasing after a ball while following no set of rules in particular). I love these unexpected warm days!

What's it like where you are?
