Mrs No Arms & The Slippy Slidy Day

This one is for Sue over at The Book Chook and Potty Mummy over at The Potty Diaries.

During the night it snowed, big fat snowflakes fell as we slept.
I don't know who was more excited when we opened the curtains; me, the 4 year old, the 2 year old or the dog. School closed for the day. As we ate breakfast we watched several cars try and fail in varying slippy slidy ways to get down our street.

After breakfast several layers were put on topped off with waterproofs and we braved the snow.

We built 'Mrs No Arms';

Then the 2 year old took off his gloves and ran round the car knocking the snow off;

Then Mummy put down the camera and the dog joined us. The daft dog loves to catch snow in her mouth much to the 2 year olds delight and cackles. Unfortunately, during the final 'snow throw', the dog caught the snow in her mouth and collided with the 2 year olds head which resulted in a deep cut between his eyes, blood all over my new Berghaus, a visit to the emergency Dr and some steri strips, like so;

As he is also Batman in his spare time, he wasn't out of action for long and returned home for some leapfrog with his sister;

Last night I hoped it would snow, tonight I hope that school is open so I can go to work for a rest. The 4 year old is hoping Mrs No Arms will live to see another slippy slidy day full of fat snowflakes.

I'm not going to show Sally this post. She's miffed that everyone we know has had snow and we've had not a flake! Snowman looks good.

You mean Batman was downed
By a goofy Snowhound?
So glad he escaped
With no rips in his cape...

I love Mrs No Arms. I hope she hasn't melted yet. Thanks for visiting my blog btw. Very kind of you. I used to live in Yorkshire. I miss snow. I wonder if I will ever see more than 1mm ever again living down south now. My mum said it was beautiful snow, she was slightly concerned she wouldn't make it to M&S for the 20% sale but by hook or by crook, she made it through the snow and ice. Your little boy will be able to show off his snow war wound with pride to his friends.

Gawd that looks really bad - obviously worse than it really is. Kids and dogs eh?

Whoa that boo boo looks painful but I'm sure he got lots of kisses to heal it. Glad to hear you're enjoying your snowfall. I'm sure it won't snow down here in TX. I miss the snow! Throw one snowball for me!
