Once There Was a Snowman!

On Saturday, I went to a baptism at 10 am. I couldn't believe we woke up to...

This!!!!!
Here it is May today and we still got snow yesterday, on the 30th of April! Can you believe it?!


This is Matt and his dad, Cory.
We have become really good friends with this family! They are in our ward. They really mean a lot to me! I am so grateful I was able to attend Matt's baptism and I am so proud of him!

After the baptism, I couldn't believe what I came home to! I came home to...
This!!!
I about died! I thought it one of the cutest things I have ever seen! Kurt and Ayla built a snowman together! I swear Kurt always does something so fun with Ayla when he his home with her. He is such a great dad!

Ayla kept collecting snow to add to the snowman.


Don't you love the mouth? Ya, it is dandy lions! It is supposed to be spring and we are still getting snow!


As Ayla was still building the snowman, she was singing the Primary song, "Once There Was a Snowman." It melted my heart!


She is just so cute!


Then she decided to give the snowman a hug!!


I had to get a picture of the snowman a little later in the day. I thought it looked so bizarre standing on the grass with barely any snow on the ground!

I was feeling pretty down about the snow in the morning but coming home to the snowman really softened my feelings!

How fun.... I guess when life gives you lemons (like snow at the end of April) you better make lemonaid!

The snowman is the cutest!

I lived in Utah when I was two years old, and that's the only time I've ever helped build a snowman!

I was not happy with the snow, but I thought it was rather symbolic of the short lived purity of being given a clean slate.
I was grateful that it melted quickly... Thank you for coming to the baptism.
