A Georgia Snow Day (in pictures)

"Mama, it's snowing!"

But not enough to make a snow ball. It's only sticking to her hair, not the ground.

"Look, now the ground is getting white."

Now THAT's enough for a snowball!

Daddy was home between shifts long enough to remember how cold snow can be on bare hands. . .

. . . and to take one picture of Mama smiling in snow.

First with bare hands.

Then with gloves and rubber boots.

I didn't have a scarf and I wanted to keep his neck warm. This didn't work.

So I went with the layers. Which still didn't really work. Poor kid.

But his sister managed to build a snow family which she placed carefully in the carport before coming inside.

She lasted 45 minutes, which was roughly 40 minutes longer than I wanted to be in the snow ( 🙂 )  She came in quite happily, but as soon as I closed the door and she peeled her soaked through gloves from her bright red fingers, she looked up at me and said, “Mama?  I SO CO-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-LD.”

She had a warm bath and soy cocoa (thanks for the suggestion Sherri.) and all in all the snow day was a toddler sized hit.

    After Zac’s first snow experience the only way I could get him in was by promising “hot cocoa like Turtle [Franklin]”. He loved the snow, and, eight years later, still does! We’re still holding out hope that Mackerdoodle will begin a love of snow early which will drive her north in her adult years to enjoy winter as it was meant to be!
