Yes, we have snow at our house! The kids and I awoke early got dressed in our snow decor, put our dog Sandy's coat and snow shoes on her and we went for a walk in the snow. We had a nice walk in the snow with the nice, crisp fresh air. When we got back from our walk, the kids made snowballs and were throwing them at....yes ME! And of course Sandy was going crazy in the snow, she always does! She runs and eats it like a mad dog!

Last night the phone rang and it was a recording from the School District saying that school was canceled for today. I guess they wanted to go ahead and be prepared so that there wouldn't be any confusion on if kids went to school today or not. So my kids are happy, hanging out, their three day weekend has turned into a now 4 dayer, who knows, if it keeps snowing like it is, it could be a 5 dayer!

The kids are excited about a snow day, but lets face it, after living in Europe where it "really" snows, this is nothing! But still, it's snow and it's pretty and it doesn't snow in SC all the time! The last time it snowed was in 2003 before we moved to Germany and the kids were only 6 and 4 and they were both sick with pnemonia! The poor things couldn't even go outside and play in it, so the Hubby and I went out and made a two sided snowman for them. One side so that they could see from our front door and the other side so that the people passing by our house could see. Pretty unique.......yes it was!

We didn't get any snow at all - just cold, cold, cold!
