Snow Day

I know that many of you northerners are tired of the snow, but here in Georgia, we RARELY get any, so we get very excited when even a few snowflakes fall. I know you all like to laugh at us because when we get news that snow might be on it's way, we close down everything (which is great since I work for the school system!). So Friday morning I got a call that the schools were closed for the day. Ethan and I stayed home (David still had to go into work) and we waited. Ethan had his nose glued to the window, waiting for the first flakes to fall. As it turns out, I could have easily gone to work because it didn't start snowing until 2:00. It never stopped until about 10:30.

David making a snow angel....

David and Ethan building a snowman (though I don't think they ever completed it!)

By the time it stopped, we had about 4 inches here at our house (which is the most we've seen in the 5 years that we've lived here). We live on 1 acre of land and it's all in front of our house. We don't have a nice flat yard's a giant hill that is no fun for kids to play in....until it snows, that is!!!!

We invited friends over (ones that could safely drive over) and the sledding began!

--And just so you know, we southerners don't have sleds since it rarely snows. We use whatever we can find...cardboard boxes with plastic trash bags over them, large storage container lids, cookie pans, you name it!

The next morning it was a Winter Wonderland...

And of course the day would not be complete without visiting my sweet Noah
on this beautiful day...


  1. Woah, what a hill to sled down! That looks so fun! The snow was beautiful! Glad you got to visit Noah, too.

  2. Sledding looked like so much fun! We were boring and just took a walk to look at all the glittery snow.
    I think you guys got more than we did! Can you believe we had all that snow?
    I was really hoping to see more today, but alas, the sun is shining!
