Reason 4,327


The 4,327th reason I love my husband . . .










He'll spend hours building a snow fort with the girls.

So I don't have to.

That is awesome! I love it! My hubby will snowplow and shovel and make me promise I won't come outside to help. Oh, okay.

What lucky girls you have! Makes me want to go out and build a snow fort...the only problem is that I live in Mississippi!

Daughters and fathers just melt your heart!

wesleyjeanne said...

I'll add my voice to the chorus: that is awesome...he is awesome!

traceyjay said...

that is so awesome!

I can't show this to my husband though -- he already wishes we lived in the snow... this will make him way too envious (because I have a feeling those smiles he's sporting aren't forced). ;)

Elissa said...

um, yeah. and he's a freaking GENIUS! okay, i have lived in snow ALL my life... feet and feet worth of snow every winter... and it has never occurred to me or anyone around me to use a cooler to make huge snow blocks.

dude, TOTAL genius. and you can tell him i said it.

Lisa said...

Very clever! What a great dad!

Trudi said...

Oh what a keeper! - LOL Looks like everyone won! The girls are beaming as usual, and hubby had a great work out and is beaming too! And you got a few moments of quiet - joy all round! (I imagine your heart just swells - hugs)

BaileyGirl5 said...

He's not too hard on the eyes either. Definitely a keeper!

~Michelle~ said...

I don't think I've ever seen such a great igloo fort before! The cooler = Genuis!

NorahS said...

What a fun Dad! Mine's a keeper, too.

grendelskin said...

Yup, he's a keeper! I'm usually a shovel-and-heave builder but I'm going to look for the cooler the next time we get a good snowfall!

Little Bluebell (Adrianne) said...

This made me smile. What fun!!!

Blue Is Bleu said...

I'm showing this to my hubs so that if we have kids, I can explain to him that I'd also like to remain inside the cosy house while he builds snow forts heehee!!

Victoria @ BUMBLE BEANS said...

HAHAHAHAHAH!!! I love it!
awh, I'm still chuckling....
yep, he's a keeper, LOL!

Oh, my kids would be so envious. I never thought to use a cooler, what an awesome idea.

Great photos of the man....so sorry we missed meeting him...one day, one day!:)

Sara said...

OH how I want a "little" snow now---great idea!

What a great dad (and hubby!:) ) !!! I love that he used a cooler for the snow; what a great idea! I wish we got enough snow to do that here in CT...oh wait, I take that back!

take care

Lisa said...

Does that man have green eyes too? What a keeper :)

Casey said...

that's just awesome!

Renna said...

What an amazing dad; and because he takes such time with his girls while they're young, they'll take time with him when he is old. Such a man for a father (and husband!)is a real treasure, indeed.

AnnieO said...

Oh, those "keepers" are the best. I know. I have one too :) We are lucky.

Great pics as usual, Dana!

April (Polkadot Sparrow) said...

What an awesome post. You lucky girl!
And I hadn't considered using a cooler to make an igloo. :)

Katie said...

I grew up in the snow and I've NEVER seen a cooler used for snow fort building...INGENIOUS!!!

TheBackPorchQuilters said...

How funny!!! We used to make igloo when we were kids and we had snow back in the day!!! I am glad we got a good snow. Russ

Emily said...

Wow. That is SO awesome! You are very blessed :)

Sandra said...

What a wonderful memory for your girls!

NicNacManiac said...

Your kids are the luckiest kids alive...how much fun is this!!
Oh right...for the adults as well :)

Stephanie D. said...

Yeah, that one's a keeper!

Mystica said...

This should be posted all over!

brown robin said...

Golly... you're husband and my husband should get together. They'd be two peas in a pod.

Jessica Christensen said...

That is AWESOME! I want a snow fort too.

Rach Fairchild said...

But, that's what a GOOD Daddy is supposed to do. LOVE their children and play well too. Great pics!

Lisa said...

That is so great to see a woman praise her hubby. I hear too many women complaining. It is awesome that your hubby loves spending time with the kids! I love to watch mine play with my kiddo's. The bonds that they are forming are priceless!! :)

bingo~bonnie said...
