The Big Snow

The cold and wet make Brian feel awful'
but he was determined to have his Bella
out playing in the snow. She was hilarious in her
heavy coat and too big snow suit and boots. Brian
said that she stayed planted wherever he stood her
when he had to do something else, lol.

VeggieTales - fun for all ages

I'm betting there is a recurring theme among southern bloggers tonight. We got about 7 inches here. Usually we do well to have a couple of inches that actually last a whole day, once a year. The children enjoyed playing in the snow and with neighbor friends that were out of school, and we all enjoyed Brian being home with us. We haven't gone back to homeschooling yet since Christmas. After a crazy Christmas trip (understatement of the century), I just want to have everything in good order first - even if that means schooling later into the spring than usual for us.

So, back to the snow. Sadie didn't know what to make of it at first, but ended up loving to hop around through it like a rabbit. There were a few wardrobe malfunctions and cold fingers, but ultimately the extra hot chocolate, fun sledding, root beer snow slushies,VeggieTales and lemon snow cream won the day. Their friend even got to sleep over tonight, because school is cancelled tomorrow too.

Cute pictures! I love Bryan's beard. Chad's doing that too. Must be "in style" these days.

He always grows his beard in the winter and shaves it in the spring. Until this last spring. I was after him to shave it off, but when he did, I told him to grow it back! He just looks better with a beard now - his 20 something baby face that I fell in love with is gone, and his 37 year old self belongs in a beard, I guess.
