Snow Day!

Two snow falls already in 2011 - this is something for the Columbia, SC area! Last night all schools (and many businesses) were closed for today in anticipation of the great snow fall and ice storm.

The kids, of course, were ecstatic when they woke up this morning to 4-5 inches of snow on the ground.

Everyone bundled up with mix and match winter clothing pieces and went outside to play for a little bit. The girls didn't last too long - they just don't have the same jackets, winter boots and waterproof items that we had growing up in the north.

Michael took Ryan sledding this afternoon and they had a good time. Ryan sled using a bin lid - I keep pleading my case for owning a sled for these once a year events!

Michael also helped Emma build a little mini snowman in the front yard.

She was so ready to turn in and change clothes inside once this picture was taken!

We haven't heard anything yet regarding delays or closing tomorrow and are waiting to see what the weather does tonight. All will be right with the world as long as our power stays on!
