Did Somebody Think Spring????

We have waited all year for snow. Much to our dismay, we have received precious little of the white stuff. I decided to make the best of it by just forgetting about winter and moving on to spring. I took all of the winter decorations down and stored them until next year. I then placed the spring decorations up throughout the house. I was beginning to get into the spring idea, after all it was almost 60 degrees just 2 days ago! I was ready to plant my plants in the raised beds under the hoops. Yes, I had made the best of a bad situation. Then I woke up this morning to about 6 inches of SNOW!!! Yikes...I wasn't prepared for that. (Remember I had packed up the winter decorations and SNOW clothes). Children were quick to unpack them this morning. They are delighted as it is the first time the get to try out the new sleds that we purchased. Seth doesn't remember being in snow before. He was confused when I wanted him to put his foot pajamas on UNDER his snow bibs. He was sure I was secretly trying to tuck him back into the bed. As you can see from the picture above, we did manage to get him dressed and out to play.

Missy loves the snow. She is like a bull in a china shop whenever snow is involved. The kids did play with her for a good while this morning, but then she had to be brought back in the house because she was making sledding nearly impossible.

Of course I don't have any homemade hot chocolate mix. That is a tradition at our house, but I had already moved on into spring. I wonder if a nice cold glass of lemon aide would do??? About the only hot thing to drink around here is a nice cup of coffee... I think I will go and partake!

grace and peace,

I love the snow, but have mentally moved on to spring as well. I hope we're not in for another 6 inches before winter is over. Just in case, I will learn from you story and leave our winter clothes out a while longer.

Yes, learn from my mistakes. Keep those snow clothes handy...just in case. Then your house won't have snow clothes and storage tubs strewn all about like our home!!!
