My Little Graffiti Artists & Other Snow Fun

First of all, thanks so much for all of the nice comments on my last B/W Wednesday post. I recently entered that, along with two others, in a B/W photo competition held by a local camera store. I know I have no chance at winning - there are some really AMAZING entries - but your kind comments were good enough for me. Thanks!

I seem to always be a few days behind in my posting these days. Most of these pictures were taken on Saturday, when we were out playing in the snow, making Mary Belle, our snow girl. I put food coloring in spray bottles and let the girls go to town on the snow. Funny thing is they headed straight to the play set to make their graffiti mark.

And Mia... Mia somehow just seemed to graffiti herself. :)

This was one of those pictures that almost immediately went into the trash can, until I took a second look and had a good laugh. To me, it looks like my little graffiti artists are on the lookout for the cops. lol

And in other snow fun, we rolled snow for our snow girl.

We sang into icycles.

And on our last two Snow Days from school, I took the girls sledding twice.

Now snow, we've had our fun. You may go away now. We've had enough this year. Pretty please!

Great idea! My girls keep asking me to take them to the snow. I don't think they've seen any in over two years, even though the mountains are only an hour away.

Chloe wants to go to the snow for her birthday next year. I told her "yes".

Haven't been 'blogging' in a while so....HI!

The pictures are full of so much FUN! Loved the spray bottles full of fun too. What a great idea! We have TOO much snow here! Another
12" fell yesterday....looks great, but I hope no one says the word drought here this summer! We received almost three feet in a week! Yep, I'm done! Hurry Spring!

Oh, loved the new haircuts too! All of the girls looked GREAT!

Fun!! A friend told us about the colored water spray bottles after we came home from the snow last time and we thought it sounded so cool. Now that I've seen your pics, I can't wait to try it.

Wanda said...

You got some fantastic snow pictures. What fun they are having!!

Love it.

Sarah said...

I've never heard of painting snow with food coloring before. Cool!

Ashley said...

Enough is enough!! Snow, snow go away come again another YEAR! I will admit I will never be happier to go back to school/work next Tuesday!

Looks like tons of fun and I LOVE the one of Leila's sideways glance, I think you're right - they were caught in the act:)

Hugs!

You don't know me but.... said...

I am looking on your blog for your email address because I would like to share something that I think you and your girls will enjoy. Is it listed somewhere?

You don't know me but.... said...

Do you have an email address? I am not one of those weirdos ..just wanted to send you a recipe for Chinese New Year. It's something you can do with your girls. I just don't want my personal info made public.
