A little bit of snow...

Well, my kids were hoping for a major blizzard that would close schools for at least a week but I thought I'd post some pictures of what we actually got here.

The kids were so excited about the snow they ran out in their pajamas!
We had big beautiful flakes..thought that just maybe the kids snow dreams might come true. Then came the sun..melting away all their hopes of school being cancelled.
Then came a little more hope...

Chantel was quite upset--her snowman building dreams were being washed away by the ground just being to warm...and that darn sun kept coming out. Then she built Alby---
Please forgive out of focus picture!
Her little tiny snowman with acrylic paint used for a face and buttons, and a small pebble on his head for a hat.  Later while making dinner look where I found Alby...
Oh Chantel..she can be such a funny 13 year old!

I really got myself in trouble with Chantel this morning--I woke her up for school..told her it was just raining outside...not a bit of snow so get ready for school. Well, turns out she gets all the way to school and texted me "There is nobody here!". Well, I guess we are like the only neighborhood without snow and school was 2 hours late. I felt so bad. My kids love to sleep in. She came home and I got a dirty look. :(who could blame her, Moms are suppose to be on top of school closures)

What my kids were hoping for was what we got in 2008...they called it the Arctic Blast (sounds like a Dairy Queen treat to me)
Here is a little trip down memory lane...
Chantel and Wyatt made snowmen they couldn't fit in the freezer!

But the next morning they looked like this

Our old house was completely covered, as were our vehicles

The kids made the trampoline into a snow fort--complete with Christmas lights lighting up the inside

The one thing I really miss about our old house is the snow, and the view. Though our old house is only 5 miles away from where we live now..it has 5 inches of snow, and we have nothing!
Thanks for stopping by--how is the weather in your area?

That sure was big ol' flakes not to last. Was Alby in the house? Kids are so funny.

Ooops! Beside the toaster pastry..in the freezer. Better idea.

Love these snow pictures...Chantel & Wyatt will be delighted to hear that since we had so much snow last night, there is no school today. :-)
