We had snow about 2 weeks ago here and it was fabulous! We weren't too sure it was coming until just before lunchtime. I had already taken Andy to school and was running some errands before getting that possible call to pick him up early. But, all was fine and school went on. So, Alex and I met up with Jason for lunch. That is when it started coming down! It was crazy. HUGE flakes! So much fun! Alex thought it was the coolest thing ever. And, we couldn't wait to get Andy from school so we could go play in it. When I went to go get him at pick-up time, the kids in his class saw my jacket and their sweet little faces lit up!! "Andrew's mommy has snow on her jacket!!"Of course, on my way home, I had to get a pic of church in the snow! It was just too pretty!!
Gotta love your home away from home : )
And speaking of home...the snow was starting to stick the further north we drove! I actually stopped on the road to take a pic of the woods. It was beautiful! How could I not?
After being home for about 45 minutes my tire tracks were already gone! So pretty!!
Even the bushes (which I need to trim up when I'm not freezing to death...) looked pretty!
The boys were yelling from the kitchen to stop taking pictures and get our snow stuff on. LOL They were SO excited!
Hill behind our house :) See, even the busted up tree is pretty...ok, not so much.
Alex (left) wasn't too sure what to do with this stuff. This was his first time in the snow (2nd, if you count him being in my tummy LOL). Andrew, on the other hand, ran out in a split second and was giggling the whole time. Too funny! (Here are pics from 2011s snow fun - day 1, day 2 and another time - I thought we had snow last year, but I guess not!)
I showed Andy how to make a snow man and he took care of the rest of it. He loved making his own snowman.
He did a pretty good job, too!
Alex quickly got used to the snow...and started a snowball fight! Can you believe it?! He is NOT helping Andy put snow in the truck. He just threw a chunk at him LOL!!!
Watch out, Alex! Looks like you are gonna get it!
Here they are cracking up at each other. Alex got one in the face and Andy told him, "Alex, it is snow! It doesn't hurt!" Then, he threw snow at himself - which made Alex laugh. Gotta love brothers!
Here they go again. After this one, they decided to get me...eek!
We had a pretty fabulous afternoon in the snow. But, now, it is time to say, "Goodbye!"
Alex waves to the snowman before the melting begins...
And, here comes the sun!!
The snow may have melted quite a bit, but this was the late afternoon. The temp dropped again making the roads very unsafe. Jason went in later the next morning. And, which by the looks of the pic below...others should have taken notes in science class... What does melted snow (ahem..water) turn into when it freezes???? Ice. Not fun. Very dangerous.
Really, guys? Really?
Yes, those are all the accidents...and that was just in the morning.
Apparently, overnight, some truck jack-knifed causing one of the interstates to shut down for an insane amount of time...like 10 hours. Seriously. I swear that is what they said. I could be wrong. But, wow! If I were still working, you better believe I would be going in when the roads are safer. My family is much more important than that. Just sayin'
So, anyone here get snow? And, yankees....I can hear you laughing... Three inches isn't a lot, but it was more than enough for me!
