Welcome to Prarie Pi. This blog exists to journal and document the memories that our family experiences. Pi is "an amount of type that has been jumbled or thrown together at random." We hope to assemble in words and pictures the daily thoughts and activities that happen in our household. We do this to help those that are distant from us get a glimpse into our days so that the miles that separate us won't keep us apart.

Finger-Lickin' Good

On Monday, we received some beautiful, fresh, white, fluffy snow. It came down continuously all day and the temperatures remained in the 30's.
Great day to play outside.....
.... and that is just what our winter-loving 3-year old did.

Little sister watched from the deck doors.....

....looking beyond the fun of big brother's toys...into the mesmerizing glitter of the flakes falling in front of her. It was a clear view.....as I had opened the sliding glass door so she could get a closer look.

She seemed to need my approval before checking things out.
(Or, she was probably waiting for me to go and get her a snowsuit.)

First, a dainty little tap with the foot.

Then, big sister comes along and gently cups a handful of snow so that little sister can feel it up close.

Now, Coco tries it herself......
.....feeling the sensations of wet, fluff and cold.

Trying it again.....

....this time to see if it has any taste.

Trying it yet again.....

....to share it with big brother, Nacho.

Coco thoroughly enjoyed her morning snack......

and ran back....

.....for one last taste of winter before Mom closed the door.
With all this snow, we're headed for the sledding hill today!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!


  1. Cute - very cute pictures of all!!!! I see Coco is sporting a new "do"!!! growing out the bangs?

    Tell Nacho to save me a scope from his loader for the next time we come to visit.

    I see the pink shoes are still in use???

  2. She is wearing a clip in her hair and looks SO BIG!!! I wish it were 30 degrees here too. I sent them out to play today in the 5 degree weather, just to get a break from 'inside'. Looks beautiful! Thank goodness that snow is pretty!
