Winter Wonderland

I just had to share a few more pictures from our day yesterday. It was truly magical. Being able to wake the kids up and say, "Come see all the snow" was so awesome. The last time we had any snow at all was when Cade was a baby, but it was nothing like this. The last time we got this much snow was in 1988! I was a junior in high school!

My parents came over yesterday to play in the snow with us. After everyone was frozen, we made a great big breakfast complete with hot chocolate. Then we went upstairs and watched the Polar Express. It was the perfect winter day.

The kids (and me) are off of school again today. I know all you northerners think that's crazy, but nobody here is used to icy conditions, so I guess they didn't want the buses driving through it. I think we'll make that gingerbread house kit that the boys have been driving me crazy about, and maybe I'll finish wrapping gifts.
I sure hope all my flower beds survive. They're not used to all this. We usually have flowers all year round.

Wow look at all that snow. You did get a good bit and hey our town would handle it the exact same way!! I told you that we shut down :) Hope you have a relaxing weekend.

Can I come over too? We haven't seen a flake of snow yet this year.
Glad the boys got to have a day to remember playing in the snow.
Can't wait for the journal entry:)

Beautiful. Your home looks so cozy. Where I live, we get really heavy winters, but today was the first heavy snow of the year. I was so happy to see the big flakes!!!

Love the snow pictures! How fun for you all! Four inches is quite a bit. Even more than we have here. Although the next few days the highs are gonna be single digits. Yikes! Great redneck snowman, too.
