It's Snowing Here!!

Yesterday evening when Jared came home he said it was lightly snowing outside. I looked and it really wasn't much. It already has snowed once but just a few flurries and I was freaking out! Hey, I was born and raised in Florida, what do you expect? :) Well a few hours had gone by, Andon was in bed sleeping and Jared and I just finished watching a movie. I kept hearing people outside and had to know what the fuss was all about. I looked out the window and everything was pure white!! It was so bright outside that it looked like daylight! It was beautiful! I was running around the house so excited. We had to wake Andon up because he has been waiting to be able to make a snowball! :) So we all got dressed and headed out to play for a little.

I didn't have my camera last night or I would have pictures. But, I did get it today!! Yes, I know that is very exciting to everyone reading this... Probably not, but I am thrilled to have it back before Christmas. :)

So, here are a few pictures of Andon playing in the snow today...

Here he is making one of the many snow angels he made! :)

And here he is eating the snow! Don't worry, I reminded him of the yellow stuff... :)

Andon is home today because they called off school for this little bit of snow! He can say he had his first "snow day"! :)

How fun is that!!! So glad you got your camera back. What cute pics of Andon playing in the snow. Did he complain about it being cold? My grandkids all love the snow, but only for a few minutes before they're too cold and want to go back inside !!!! Oh well ... it's fun while it lasts!

Looking forward to seeing you soon ... back in Florida (where we'll probably need the a.c. on for Christmas) !!!!

Hey Terri!! No Andon didn't complain at all, I was the one complaining to go back in! :) My fingers were frozen!

I know, I can't wait to see you too!!
Love you! Jen

That is the most fun! Wish we were there enjoying it with you. My kids so want to play in snow. Can't wait to see you. Love you.

Wow, what I wouldn't do to live in a place that had snow again! Not a bunch of it, but occasional snow is fun. I remember playing out in it for hours. I have such fun memories of building snowforts, snowmen, snowmobiling and sking as a child. If you get a real good snowfall, you guys should try and find a place that rents snowmobiles, Andon would have a blast doing that. Hoping to see you when you come down for a visit!

Oh how fun!!! I love that you woke Andon up! That is how I feel about snow...I really miss it! I wish my kids could see it and play in it more often. Maybe we will see it this year in Iowa! I keep "seeing" that you are coming to that so? I thought you were going to the cabin for Christmas. Are you coming here too? I hope I can see you! Love, Christie
