Our Snow Day


I realize by now everyone is ready for Spring and you probably don't want to see more snow pictures.  But... you must understand the significance of snow for us here in the south.  It's so rare!  Our family had such fun playing in it last week.  This post is for my family and all the wonderful memories we made.
When it started snowing everyone was gone but me.  I was squealing and running through the house.  A person can only squeal to one's self for so long.  They finally arrived home at dark.  We didn't care that it was freezing and the neighbors were all snuggled in their houses.  We hooped and hollered (another Southern thang) until 10 p.m. 



Snowball fights!



The next morning we awoke to a winter wonderland...



Yours truly had to make a snow angel!  Haven't done that since childhood!  Brrr.. it was cold laying there! 
I loved how the pine branches were heavy with snow!  You can see it starting to melt.  We don't get it often and can't keep it for long!


And here was God's Valentine's gift to us...

Happy Memories!

Love all your snowy photos! Yes, great memories and it's so much fun to watch the kids play in the snow.

So pretty! You have to hoop and holler when it snows! My biggest regret as a teacher is when we had a trace of snow and I thought schoolwork was more important than playing in the snow. I was too worried about what others might think if I let my students play. I was much younger than and, I hope, much wiser now.
