Fat Flakes

Well, the weatherman started calling for snow yesterday so of course the kids were all beside themselves. Ki and I headed up to Powell Butte early in case the snow hit and made it troublesome getting down our hill. We got some snow and rain mix slapping us in the face due to the wind, but by the time we got back home, nothing but rain. By 6pm Mai was fed up with the weatherman's inaccuracy and she went to bed early in protest. At 2:30AM Steve found her on the couch and very pissed at the weatherman (still). I finally got her back to sleep at 4:30am and was able to wake her up at 7:30 to lots of fat flakes falling down. She's in heaven! Hopefully I can get some footage later of us sledding down our hill!

I so miss the snow! Living in Arkansas we only get it like twice a year and it is just a light dusting. :( Looks beautiful and I am glad your kids love to play in it!

Thanks for sharing!

We sure don't get it as often as I would like, Jess. Snow days are such huge happy memories of my childhood because my Mom loved them so much. We still call each other on the phone at the first sign of snow in either of our neck of the woods.

oh me oh my. I was pissed at my weather man this week too. He called for snow on Friday but none fell, I still had to wait two hours to take my kids to school though, bummer.
