My husband’s grandfather passed away on Thursday so we packed up and headed to Nebraska. It seems like we have had more than our share of death in the last year, but I’ll keep this post light!
The kids were amazed at all the snow! We got out of the van and began making our way to the building on the icy road. Jason said to the girls, “Be careful; don’t slip…” In unison all three girls slipped and fell on their bottoms. “…on the ice.” It would have been almost musical if it hadn’t been for the cacophony of cries that followed. Thankfully, they made up with the snow and ice a bit later. See for yourself:
Faith, queen of the snow ball.
Joy, wanted her picture by grandpa’s snow man.
Grace tried to build her own snow man.

Love the pictures! We were in Omaha over this past weekend for a funeral as well…my husband’s dear aunt Margie. It was a sad circumstance, but a chance to see so much family that we hadn’t seen in a while.
Sorry for your loss.
Love all the snow pics 🙂
I am so sorry for your loss. I love your pictures though, happy to see the kiddos having fun!
I’m so sorry to rad about the death of your husband’s grandfather. My husband also lost his grandfather recently, in December. Hugs to your family.

The pictures and your kiddos are adorable. Looks like a good time in the snow!
I’m so sorry for your loss.
I know about falling on the ice. I slipped and fell down my brother’s front steps yesterday (about 6 of them) and today I can hardly move. And I’m used to ice since I’m from Iowa 🙂
You were in Nebraska and didn’t stop by? Haha!
Glad somebody is enjoying the snow, Esther. I’ve had my fill for now.
Sorry about the loss of your husband’s grandfather. Hugs.
I’m so sad for the whole family–have some idea what they are going through. The kids are so cute in the snow. I’m glad you have it and not me.
Such a sad reason to have to make this kind of trip…but I’m glad to see that you were able to make the best of it..:)
I love your pictures!!!!
We hardly have snow here in South Africa.
Have a lovely day Esther:)
Sorry about your husband’s grandfather.
Cute snow pictures! We’ve had lots of snow here-my kids have another snow day today.

It looks like your crew really enjoyed the snow. I hope we get a little more in my area before winter is over.

How FUN!! Living in southern CA, we don’t ever have snow days like that — unless we drive two hours away to Big Bear Mountain. Wonderful photos! Thanks for sharing 🙂
