Snow Day!

I know, I know all of my friends that live in the North are thinking, "what, a snow day for 1/2 inch of snow?" Remember I live in the south, snow and ice are not a good combo for those of us that have rarely seen such a sight. Growing up in this town, I have fond memories of at least 2-3 good snows a year. I am not an advocate for the Global Warming campaign, but my sweet S is a decade old and I am certain she has only had 2-3 good snows in her lifetime!

Needless to say, when flakes started flying Thursday around lunch. . the call was made and school was canceled for the next day. Snow started accumulating slowly and by late afternoon there was enough to see. . the kids immediately bundled up and headed to make snowballs. Due to the Arctic blast the weather channel has advertised very well the last week, the driveway quickly froze and the sleds were found. The kids were able to get a good slide or two in before needing to come in and warm up.

This morning, the snow was still around, so once temperatures were above 20 degrees, the kids bundled up for another run or two. J even found a few good, tall hills to sled on. . and they had a blast. We snapped a few photos. The cutest of course was AC and seeing her enjoy her first snow. (of course she was only outside for maybe 3 minutes!)

Enjoy and stay warm wherever you are!

Uggs, the new family fashion. . . in and out of the house! Thanks Uncle Rob for AC's, they fit great!

Thanks to Mrs. Emmy for AC's bunny coat!
