Let it Melt, Let it Melt, Let it Melt

On Thursday, we began the watch for winter weather.  In Arkansas we were under a "Winter Weather Advisory".  My first grader told me that her teacher asked them to pray for snow.  All of the prayers must have worked because we were snowed in on Friday.  Actually the snow didn't start until late in the afternoon, but the ice was predicted to come before the snow and it was quite a doozy.  I am sure that the school personnel was cautious as they did not want children to get to school and not be able to get from school.  The kids were super excited when the snow came.  They could not wait to get outside!  We did gather up enough snow this time to make some snow cream also since we forgot last time. 

We had been outside all of 15 minutes when they decided that they were ready to come in. I made them gather in front of the woodpile for one last shot. This is how it came out:
Yes, Emily has socks on her feet. We could not find her hat and gloves and there just was not enough time to look for them. They had to get outside immediately! They were just as eager to get inside and drink some hot chocolate!  They thought that was the deal of the day, as we're southerners and we're just not accustomed to this cold weather and SNOW!

I know you guys are getting beat up with snow down there, and strangely enough, there's nothing but frigid temps in the northeast. I'm so happy the kids got to run and play in it. It must be quite a sight if you never get it. The kids are adorable!

Adorable is what these photographs are. Your kids are just the best. How can the rest of us not love them. Emily is getting so big too. Seems like yesterday when she arrived and look at her now. They do grow so very fast.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

Isn't that always the way it goes? You spend so much time getting them ready to go out and then they're ready to come in after just a few minutes! You got some adorable pics, though!

LOL! These are great shots. I just wish it would SNOW here. I miss it terribly! You are lucky that you and your kids are getting to experience it. I know you're ready for it to be done but it's the fun times with the snow that you'll remember most. I remember making snow ice cream growing up. It was so much fun! ENJOY!

Kids always love snow no matter where they're living, don't they? I can remember being young and loving snow days but these days, I remember being old and being cold and wanting it all to just go away!!!

Stay warm down there and remember - layers are your friend!
