I can't believe it!
We actually got snow!
AND it stuck to the ground!!!
This doesn't happen much around these parts, so when the snow arrives, it's a big deal. Regular scheduled tv programs are trumped by the local news stations reporting the same news, "it's snowing!" for hours on end. Grocery stores sell out of bread and milk like it's a category four hurricane. And don't even get me started on the drivers. People seem to lose their brains once the first flake falls and traveling 10 miles turns into a three hour trip home. It's crazy.
Thankfully John was released from work just before the snow started falling so we were all home, safe and sound, to enjoy the winter wonderland. I took an excessive number of pictures to document it all because, well, snow is a *big deal* around here. Enjoy!
We weren't sure how much snow we would get, so as soon as it started falling we bundled up and went outside. I don't know if Luke even noticed the white stuff. He just wanted to push his coupe around the yard, like he always does. :)
Here Luke started to notice that the sidewalk is a bit different than normal.
(and yes that is Christmas garland still wrapped around the front porch railing. oops.)
I tried to teach Luke the fine art of catching a snowflake on your tongue.
He was unimpressed.
It was dinnertime and we were all hungry, so we didn't last long outside. After warming up and eating supper, we spent the rest of the night enjoying the snow from the other side of the window.
Look! The grass is completely covered!
I was doing my happy dance.
Emmy likes to eat snowballs.
Luke walking with Dad...
How do you get a smile out of Mr. Default-face?
toss him into the air
He LOVES it.
(I'm bummed that a lot of the photos from here on out are are blurry. Our camera lens got wet from the snow and I made it worse by trying to clean the wet lens with my glove.)
Our yard looks like a winter wonderland!
Another sure way to get Luke to smile?
Show him a dog. He adores our puppies.
Apparently it also works on me. :)
You're probably thinking, "where is the other dog?"
Sadie likes to explore the woods when she gets out of the backyard, while Emmy likes to stay close to us. We do love our brown dog, but she loves exploring the woods more.
Daddy taught Luke how to make snowballs...and then feed them to Emmy. :)
