Alabama Snow Day

This was the first snow that we've had since having kids here that they were truly able to play in it.  It still was not quite enough to make a snow angel or make some snow cream (when I was a kid we always colored our snow cream pink).  But we made snow 'babies' and had snow ball fights and the boys played football in the snow with daddy (my camera battery died before that, plus it was twilight and would of been really dark pics).  It was a perfect day for playing in it at 33F and big flakes falling down off and on and no wind.  Today on the other hand while beautiful outside with snow flurries most of the day is a bone chilling 19F and 'feels like' 8F.  Sorry kids, we just don't own proper clothing to hang out in that kind of weather very long.  So to make up for it, I made yummy snowman pancakes for breakfast.  :)

those are cute pics! It's so fun to watch kids play in the snow. Your kids would love it here, we probably have over a foot of snow on the ground!

So fun! The snow ended up missing us last night, so we just have another cold day (although at least the high is in the 30's today). My mom, who just started the drive back to Colorado yesterday, was laughing this morning because the entire town in W. VA where she stayed last night had shut down because of 1" of snow and the people were talking about how even though they get the occasional snow, its "nothing like this!" It all depends on what you are used to! Being from CA, I think the occasional couple inches really is plenty :)

We had fun in our inch. :) We keep saying that we will go up to IA to grandma's for Christmas and play in REAL snow! I grew up for a while in NC and we had a decent one every year and hubby is from Chicago, so ya know, he knows snow. Our poor kids are stuck in AL. But after this really cold 10 days, I'm so thankful that we do! ;)

So cute! We were in the snow in MN for the holidays and my boy and husband played so long after dinner that grandpa locked the door and went to bed. Snowballs had to awaken me to let them in:)
