We're Snowed In..Still!

I cannot remember the last time we've had this much accumulated snowfall..4 inches! A rather big deal for us southerners, we're not exactly prepared for this type of weather and so for the past 4 days, the simple act of leaving our driveway has been impeded..

But not our sense of FUN
because being snowed in means being in SNOW! It means snowy desserts with thumbs up approvalIt means snow gathering and snow sculpting
snow dancing and snow throwing
lots of snow throwing :o) However Maya preferred to eat the snow
rather than throw it
A much needed snow,
it brought color and smiles to my winter blah
It's not the cold, it's not the snow..it's the lingering gray
So I'll keep warm
and be patientbecause the sun hasn't forgotten me

Beautiful!

That bit about four inches making you inbound for four days was pretty hilarious. Now four feet...
:)

The pictures are so beautiful - especially love the one of Meg with her hand behind her back.

Landslide (Stevie and also Smashing Pumpkins) is an all-time top three favorite song.
So thanks for that.
xxoo

Our winter has given us a lot of snow this year too, but it's more like AGAIN, instead of STILL.

Looks like you guys are having an awesome time out in the snow! My boys went to their papaw's for the wknd, so I am hoping he takes them out to play! I prefer to stay inside where it's warm and toasty.... :)
