SNOW!!!!

Friday evening around 5:30 it started snowing in little ole southwest Georgia!! I had been looking out the kitchen window all day with the hope of seeing some snow falling but had pretty much given up as I was getting supper ready. Then a friend called to tell me it was snowing at her house and the flakes were hugeamongus! About 10 minutes after her phone call, the hugeamongus flakes finally made it to our neck of the woods! And Jon got home just in time too!We threw some layers of clothing on the kids and ran outside. Oh the looks on their little faces! It was priceless. They were looking up at the sky in their childish wonderment and spinning around and around letting the snowflakes hit their tongues and what small part of their faces that wasn't covered!James was a tad more into it than Audrey. She enjoyed it sure enough but she is not a huge fan of things that are cold. (James can eat 2 bowls of ice cream to her one!)
It only snowed for about 45 minutes and it didn't really stick but it sure was pretty. The kids had so much fun and I am so glad that they got to experience it (even if they probably wont remember it!)and I am even more glad that we got to experience it as a family!
When I declared it time to go in, Audrey was all for it. James, on the other hand, was a little harder to convince that he was partially frozen and needed to go in and thaw out, so Jon had to stay outside with him a little longer. Snow is definitely a beautiful site and lots of fun to play in but I am soooooo glad that we don't live in a climate that has 22 inches of snow with more to come! I like my warm, sunny weather and will be glad to see it return!!!

What a wonderful memory (and I feel sure they truly WILL remember it). Thanks for expressing it so beautifully for the rest of us. As usual, your words and pictures make me feel like I was there (almost).

I'm hopelessly addicted, 'manda, to my "twins fix". And, I thank you for this infusion today. I wondered if you'd had snow. We had a few hours of snow and once it began sticking, it was most gorgeous. Glad James and Audrey had this encounter with cold, frosty bits falling from heaven. I don't think they'll forget. I'm with Audrey, though. I enjoy sitting by the fire and watching it fall.

They remember anything and EVERYTHING, Mannio. Do you NOT remember the "Ole Daddy's hot chips"?!?!
