We interrupted this update for a very important announcement.....


I'm trying to catch up on all of our festivities still but wanted to share the beauty that took place Thursday afternoon at our house.
We have been teased all week about the possibility of "real" snow. The weather people's tighty whiteys have been in a knot all week. All week people! I told my kids including the 11 year old meteorologist that I named Jakob at his birth, not to get too excited. Let's just wait and see.
Wednesday afternoon as I sat with the 14 year old at the orthodontist, my cell phone starting going off. Early dismal
on Thursday, icy roads in the forecast. YEAH, early day for the kiddos. Then I remembered it was my first day of school. UH OH! Skipping class on the first day is probably not the best way to start off the new semester, but what'cha gonna do?
We awoke to a happy morning, as all the kids enjoyed a beautiful sunrise while getting on the bus. I thought to myself, the sky is too pretty for snow....
Noon came, my house became full of all the cul de sac kids as they got off the bus. I lost count after 10 :) And then 1:15 came and so did the


look mom, I caught a snowflake!

the kids in the 'hood!

UM EXCUSE ME, you want me to pee on what?!

no chance sista!!

we're calling these the "southern snow angels" :)

the creek behind our house.

this is behind my next door neighbor Carol's house, her yard is not as sloped as ours.

a wee little snow man, CUTE!!


Now, I know all of the people from up North are laughing at us. But WE DON'T CARE!! This is a RARE chance for my babies to enjoy the beautiful white stuff!
Believe me, I'm not taking this day or any of these memories for granted!
