I waffled around and kept checking the weather forecast, but I was concerned that it would be yucky and wet by morning, so yes, that was my kids outside at 1 AM rolling snowballs...
for the best southern snowman this northern girl's ever managed! The snow was at the perfect stickiness for rolling huge snowballs - but lifting and stacking them proved to require a bit more effort. That and tring to get three distracted kids to look at the camera at the same time.
Ethan wasn't ready to come in for his cocoa until he'd made his own personal snowman and one for the freezer.
And, miraculously enough, after a few Barbie princess music videos on youtube and a snow-themed storybook, they fell into bed again at about 2:20 and immediately passed out.
