Snowy Sunday, Southern Style

We had a beautiful snow today. As a matter of fact, church was called off and the road crews were out with sand trucks. We actually got about 4 inches or so. It has melted already though and it is abut 2:30pm. These pictures were taken about8:30am.

This one is Monkey, out for the first time in it.

This is Tiger out for the first time in it, trying to figure it all out.

Here is the boys with their Daddy.
It is really coming down now!

Here I am, very happy, if I might add, with my boys!

Here's Monkey, still for the moment.

Here's Tiger, he's still not sure about it all!

There they go!!!!

Looking pout my back door, this is my brother and sister-in-law's house.

This is the little orchard in our front yard.

This is the back of my parent's house, looking out my front door.

If you remember the "fire" this was the area from that, our back yard and the creek.

Here is the pond (the creek behind our house runs into it).

I made snow cream and it was so, so yummy!
Here is Tiger, after we went and played outside. He had two bowlfuls!

Monkey posed after two bites, but did not like it. He doesn't like ice cream!

We have had a wonderfully blessed day! I hope all is well with you and yours. Did you have snow or rain or sunshine today? It was just Friday night that we had tornados in the state.

Very nice pictures! The snow looked fun, but I have to say - glad you guys got it instead of us!

Oh it looks like the boys had a great time. I would probably be excited about 4 inches of snow the 1st of March if we didn't already have 4 months of it. Though I'm happy you all had a great day. We had a little bit warmer weather. Their was signs of melting going on.

It rained all day here, although it is supposed to turn to snow this evening. We shall see.

Nico said...

Wow look at all that snow! I bet your boys loved it!

Beautiful pictures! I'm 'jealous' that you guys actually got enough to play in. lol (just kidding) Glad your boys got to enjoy it for the first time. Dathan saw that ya'll had alot more and wants to know if we can come to your house the next time it's supposed to snow! lol :-) Hope you have a good day. Please pray for me about something very hard that I'm dealing with..I really need the Lord's help.

Lovely pictures, and it looks like your boys enjoyed themselves!

You all a good bit of snow. We had snow and sleet on Saturday for several hours but it didn't stick to the ground. It did make the trees and rooftops pretty. Looks like your boys really enjoyed it. That is so neat to see.

Mimi said...

Your boys are too cute!
I love your property, it's beautiful.

I don't know how I missed this post the first time around! What a wonderful day - I think the best kind of snow is the kind that doesn't last ;) That way you don't get stuck with the mushy dirty snow later on when things start to melt...great pictures!!

It has been so cold lately (with the exception of this weekend, yeah!) and Sweetpea keeps asking where is the snow? Surely if it's this cold there should be some snow, right, mom?
