Snow Day!

So it did snow! A little bit. A really tiny little bit. More of a dusting, but it is snow in Lexington, SC! The elementary school and the girl's preschools were closed today so once we all got up and dressed, out the door we went to grab a few pictures of the kids playing in the snow.

Here is Emma making a snowball. I know you must be thinking, "Wow, I can't believe you let your kids play in a blizzard like that!"

I know, I know. We live on the edge.

It was actually a strain to find the snow since there was so much grass still popping through. Not exactly snowball fight worthy.

But that didn't keep the kids from having fun on their snow day.

Here is a shot in a neighborhood. Now you can see why the schools and local businesses were closed today, can't you. It's very dangerous driving around on streets like these!

Since we really don't have to deal with much snow or regular cold weather, we really don't have much in the way of gloves, scarves and hats for the kids. I just had to mix and match the little that we did have and try and fit it to them. Avery refused to wear the gloves because she was still nibbling her bowl of cereal. You can see the the pink gloves cast aside behind Ryan!

Here is the three of them about to do some damage to the winter wonderland. Watch out!

A shot from the backyard. It snowed pretty steadily until around noon today and then just tapered off. It was gorgeous while it was coming down. A nice treat for those of us who don't get to witness actual snow very often.

And of course, Avery, still eating cereal in the cold. She really didn't seem all that impressed considering this was her first experience with the white stuff.

We didn't last long outside and eventually ventured inside for some hot chocolate and marshmallows. Isn't that what snow is really about anyway?
