Snow Day!! The Blizzard of '10!

For some of you who get snow all the time, it's just another day. For us, who rarely get snow, it's an EVENT! And, like all good events, it should be celebrated. And celebrate we did!

This is the front porch as it looked at 5:30 am when I got up Monday morning. Our weather guys hadn't predicted this..so I was totally surprised!

The boys suited up and headed out. Before long, they had a snowman going, albeit a dirty snowman!

Their dad helped them finish it, and I forgot to get a picture of the finished product on my camera. I did get one on my phone, but unfortunately I have no way to load those pictures onto the computer.
I sent my brother, Michael, a text and told him to send his kids down if he wanted to. My boys love playing with their cousins. He said he'd send them down, but he had to stay home and work. I said ok. Then he said "well, if you'll make some coffee I'll come down too. This snow isn't going to last long, might as well enjoy it." I said ok. So they came down. And Jonah and Makayla were telling us something...


And so we looked out the door and it was pouring snow. I'm talking snowflakes the size of quarters...


And the kids played and played and played...


And then they came in and ate and ate and ate...and that snow that Michael said "won't last long"? Well, it's Thursday night and it's still here. And guess what..."they" say more is on the way tonight! Yippee!! More celebrating coming up!!!
Stay warm!

Oh, Cathy, I wish I could ship you some of the snow we have had here in Virginia. Your kids would have a blast. We've had 60+ inches so far this year. Our schools have been out of session for two consecutive weeks. It just about matches their Christmas vacation. We have more in the forecast for Monday. Check some of the pictures from some of my back posts!
