Snow!


It happened!  It actually snowed in North Carolina last week.  Snow only falls about every other year here, so when it does, everyone gets really excited.  I'm usually not a fan, but this year was really fun with the boys.  


^^We had everything planned out perfectly for a snowman.  The Oreos for buttons, the carrots, the raisins...and then we realized that it was REALLY hard to build a snowman.  This ^ took us about 10 minutes.  I kid you not.  
^^But a neighborhood snowman was amazing!
^My dad with the missionaries on the front page of the paper shoveling in front of his office.  

We spent the snow days at my parents' house, and did all the fun things that snow brings.  Made snow cream, got new snow boots, had snowball fights, went sledding, stayed in pjs, and shoveled snow (which Charlie surprisingly really liked to do).  The boys also got the royal treatment as usual, with early morning Disney channel watching and breakfast in Grandpa and Mimi's bed. 

Charlie LOVED playing in the snow with his new boots.....and Walker liked looking at it and eating tasty treats inside.  They both enjoyed riding on the sled. (And so did, I!)


Hope you're having a great weekend!!

Oh my goodness, how sweet! I am loving the picture of the boys in their cars pajamas. I'm glad you enjoyed the snow more than usual this year!

So much fun! I'm a little pissed that I came all the way to England, and it's not even that cold! No snow! It's snowing even in Texas, and not here...

I'm with Walker - I love to sit inside and watch it, but I am not one for actually getting out in it, Brrr!

We had just as much fun on the snow day too! I was very surprised at how hard it was to build a snowman. We ended up with a really small one too that took forever to make! Still so much fun having a little one though, watching her in awe of it all!

Looks like you got a little bit more than us...jealous! Sounds like a really great time for all. :)

It was a good snow! Making a snowman is hard. We tried a few years ago when it snowed.

Y'all got quite a bit of snow! We get so little here in Georgia, I love it every time! I'm definitely one of the few.

Oh how sweet! Your boys are just darling! We have had over five feet of snow so far this winter, so we are all over it and ready for spring! But I am glad you enjoyed the snow day! Susan

Yay for snow! I never posted a picture of our snowman on Instagram ... he was more like a pile of snow with eyes, a nose, a mouth, and a hat :) It was so hard to pack the snow, but our neighbors made a snowman as tall as me. I don't know how they did it.

Can you believe they're calling for more this week? Crazy!

I was so sad, my husband didn't get a snow day either! But it was so fun to have winter here for a few days!
