Yea!! We FINALLY Got Some Snow!


After waiting all winter for some snow, we finally got some on the first day of March:) The Bradford Pear trees are already blooming and the daffodils are, too! This is so typical of the South! :)
We are certainly enjoying it, too! The kiddos and Vince even built a snowman~miniature though he may be! A few years ago my mom had given us one of those *snowman kits*~you know the ones with all of the snowman accessories~but we've never had a good opportunity (meaning: enough snow) to use it. Well, our snowman may be a miniature one today, but we got out those accessories and put them to use anyway.
There was some snow angel fun and Vince even decided to get in on the action.

Our best friends brought their kiddos over to play, too. We even whipped up some real snowcones with some homemade syrup made with lemonade and raspberry syrup. Yummy!!
Now for some hot chocolate to warm up.....

Well, that snowman is certainly cute!!!

I wondered if Mari, Betsy, and I were finally sharing our bounty of snow with you when I heard the weather this morning. Wish we could share some of our continual cold. Today our temp dropped on the way home from church from 22 to 20, and the low tonight will be 8. Yippee?

I'm so glad the kids finally got some "real" snow. =) The snowman is just too cute for words.
