It doesn't snow in Southern Louisiana.
Until it did.
I checked the kids out and let them play, I couldn't resist.
(After all, it doesn't snow in Southern Louisiana.)
I shouldn't have even made them GO to school...they were home by 10 AM playing and laughing and having a blast!
On the way home, they dug into fresh warm bread from the bakery and Starbucks signature hot cocoa...the one with caramel and salt.....oh my! what a treat!
look how pretty the entrance to the neighborhood looks in the snow:
here is our little house all covered in snow.......okay, SORT OF covered in snow:
here are the hoodlums...I mean kids...all bundled up in their "color coordinated" ski wear! ha! I especially love Ripstick Boy's LIPS.......the ONLY thing you can see!
here is a snow girl they made together. She started out about 3 feet tall....but by the time I took the photo, she had started shrinking....snow people age quickly.
I wish I could ask for more snow but I can't. The powerlines can't handle it. We had wrecks, power outages, broken tree limbs....the list goes on.
As much as I LOVE SNOW, it poses such a hardship in states not used to nor prepared for it.
But for the day, you couldn't rip the smile off my face.....we truly had a wonderful day.
