Snow Day!

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.

Your neck of the woods is very similar to mine....it doesn't snow in central Texas.....LOL....until it snowed at Easter....don't ask...Your bunch looks like they were having a great time playing in the snow.
Take care.

Oh, snow is so beautiful!

Here it doesn't sow too. But I don't think some day will!

Like your patterns!

Now you've given me fase hope that we might get snow here...

then made me feel guilty for wanting it. Californians don't even know how to drive in the light rain and every wee gust of wind brings down power lines. Goodness knows what would happen if it snowed here...

When you live where snow doesnt happen often, you really enjoy the novelty! It is the same way here. That hot chocolate sounds so good...I may have to make a run to starbucks! Melinda
