1st snow day of 2010

it snowed about 8 inches last night. so, guess what?  no school !! i had some very excited kids this morning, from the biggest to the smallest. daddy stayed home too and took an opportunity to get out in the snow with the kids and took them sledding. it was so cold today though. it only got into the teens with a wind chill of about zero degrees. but, that could not stop them. they bundled up and headed out for some fun in the snow.



             "mommy, i can't move!"









the snow was still falling when they went out.




























                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     



"come on, let's go"



"it's good! wanna bite?"



"these are some yummy snow cones!"



"put that camera down and come play with me!"



"come on bubba, let's go"





      "geronimo!!!"


     "oh no! oh no! oh no!"


poor jacob! he was just getting pummeled with snow in his face the whole way


                                                                                            "whew! we made it"



everyone wanted to go again, except jacob, because of course, he did not like his face full of snow!


when they were done sledding, rachel had the brilliant idea of burying josiah in the snow. why he agreed, i'll never know. but i think they all had a blast on the 1st snow day of 2010!

Except for the cold, it looks like a lot of fun! We just got several inches of snow today, and I'm hoping for a snow day tomorrow.

You have such a lovely family. Looks like a lot of fun!

Mighty M said...

Look at all that snow! What fun!! I would NOT want to be buried though - no thank you! :)

Jenilee said...

looks fun! we have that same sled and we'll be using it later today in our bunches of snow!

Kristin said...

Oh my goodness, I have never lived anywhere with snow like that! My girls would be thrilled to see that! Glad everyone had a good time......looks like fun. I love the doggie picture :D

RCUBEs said...

I was about to get off line when I saw your post. No! I gotta' come here and see the great pictures. You always capture all these fun times, sweet memories! Can't miss them!

Teenagers are "warm blooded" creatures. So, I guess they can be buried in the snow :) Being "80" now, I wish I did that! Put me now in the snow, my bones will surely break!

Ahh...poor Jacob! But he is a cute angel against all these beautiful white background! Stay safe and warm sister! God bless you all!

He & Me + 3 said...

It does look like fun but freezing fun. Much better than shoveling. I will take sledding over that anyday. So glad they all enjoyed a snow day. We wanted one today but no such luck.

Cassie said...

It looks like they had so much fun! But I have to admit, I'm glad it doesn't snow where I live! I love that even the dog is bundled up :)

Brandi said...

That is a lot of snow!! It looks like they had a blast! Great pics. :)

Adeye said...

A family having fun together. I absolutely love it, my friend.

I'm with you--WHY did he get buried in snow??? Yikes, that must have been cold. Boys--gotta love them :)

Thank you for your prayers today. I appreciate it so much.

Darcie said...

I love how Josiah looks out for his little brother. Brings a smile to this moms face.

Nothing better than a snow day...we got a snow afternoon yesterday...not quite the same.

Have a great weekend.

Shana said...

Thanks for visiting me Christy! Your kids are just precious! My boy's would have a blast in that much snow! I look forward to getting to know you better =0)

Lisa said...

How fun!

Karen said...

What a fun time...never see that much snow in Georgia...

Heart2Heart said...

Christie,

Oh what fun all this looks like. Wishing I was there playing with all of you. I can honestly say, I've never seen anyone buried with snow, sand maybe but never snow. Great idea!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Deborah Ann said...

Woo hoo! Snow day! Gorgeous pictures. I nibbled on a few 'snow cones' back in the day too...hehe

Teresa @ ♥ TOO MANY HEARTBEATS ♥ said...

YAY! We had a snow day here, too! Well....actually we only got about a half an inch, just barely a dusting. :0( I was REALLY disappointed because I wanted to see everything beautifully covered in white, but it just wasn't meant to be. However, it was still enough to make everything extremely icy and that ALWAYS makes for very dangerous driving down here in the south! All our schools are closed so we are still happy campers. :0) I wish we could get the kind of snow you have today. It has been a long, long time since we've seen that much snow. One day, I hope to move a little farther north to the mountains so we can see it a few times every year!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your sweet comment. I also appreciate your continued prayers. You are such a great source of encouragement for me and I truly cherish having you as my new friend.

Have fun in your snow!

That looks like so much fun. Such great pictures too. I wish it snowed in S. Central TX!

(Thanks for all your comments on my blog. :) )

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

Great pictures! My kids would be so jealous!

laura Brown said...

What a blast! It was just too cold for me, though!

septembermom said...

So much fun! I want to come and play :) My kids had a two hour delay too. We didn't get too much snow.

Beth E. said...

We got about three inches of snow, but it's waaaay too cold for me to even think about going out! I could blame it on being sick (I'm feeling some better), but it's probably my old age! ;-)

Alyssa said...

Looks like you were prepared for the snow and had fun... we had 2 feet several weeks ago and it was not as much fun it was actually to much snow!

Bridget said...

Looks like fun! Of course, I don't actually want any...it's just fun to hear about and look at :D

Mags said...

What a beautiful and loving family you have!!! I love all your sledding shots...I felt I was right there with them.

Shanna said...

oh.my.goodness...what fun! I don't think I've ever seen that much snow! Here in AR we freak out over 1 inch haha

Christy said...

Looks like you had a great time in the snow. We have some, but nearly 8 inches (maybe 2 or 3 at the most). My husband and boys are sledding today with friends.

LisaShaw said...

Oh what fun!!! Great photos. Beautiful family.

We have the cold, and some snow, but I'll take the snow over the cold

Julie said...

Loved the photos. We've had some snow too... not near as much as you guys, yet ours has the icy component to it so we are stuck...

Hope you all had tons of fun!

Pam D said...

Oh my! You commented on my snow post, and I came over here to say "thanks". And now I am shamefully embarrassed that you had to see what constitutes a snow day in Georgia! EIGHT inches? That's about the height of any snowman my boy has EVER been able to make out of Georgia snow! Those pictures are so fun; I can't wait to show my little guy what a ReaL snow day looks like!

Cheesemakin' Mamma said...

I think it is just so awesome that your teens will get out there and play in the snow all together. Looks like they had an awesome time! I'm jealous, we haven't had snow for a month. Send some our way!

Alicia, The Snowflake said...

Oh how fun! Looks like everybody had a great time. My son would love it if we got that much snow. But after a week of artic like temps, I'm not so sure. I'm thinking I kind of like the weather we usually have.

Joanne@ Blessed... said...

You have a gorgeous family, do you know that? LOVE just oozes out of the picture and into my heart.

You are truly blessed my friend!

Shirl said...

Looks like such fun! And such wonderfully exposed shots! Snow is tricky, requiring an exposure compensation adjustment. As for me and snow...I tend to curl up inside where it's warm, but what fun I am missing!
