I am no longer dreamin'......

...of a White Christmas!

We woke up to a 15 inch blanket of beautiful white snow!

Our poor ugly bush that blooms once a year.

Yesterday, before the snow got heavy I had decided that it actually looks pretty twice a year.

In the late spring when it blooms and when covered with a light fresh snow.

I am afraid that the evening snow is too much for it.

My hubby out shoveling for the 2nd time today!

After driving Tommy 3 blocks to school, it took 15 mins to do so, we discovered that they had cancelled it.

YEAH, snow day!

Milo was beyond excited that he got to have a " SNOW DAY!"

Which totally surprised me.

We always get snow. I think that they decided to just break early for the holiday.

So what do you do on a snow day?

You bundle up and play........

I didn't have to go to work until 1pm so why not.

First off, we built a huge snow fort.

It is imperiative to have one when having a snow ball fight.

Then onto a backyard sledding hill for Lil'.
I am so glad, that I took the time to play today.
I love you Milo and Lily!

Whilst playing in the yard we heard a huge crashing sound.
As we tuned towards the sound we witnessed a tree caving under the weight of the heavy wet snow.
A creek runs along our backyard. One of the trees on the creek bank fell into the the neighbors fence across the way.

We will be having a "White Christmas!"
Thanks to my moms prayers.

This is making me laugh, Here we sit with absolutely no white stuff anywhere in our valley. We've had some rain and snow in the mountains all around but we may not be having a white Christmas. Sigh. Your pictures make me feel like we're missing out on something grand!

Merry Christmas!

White out! We got so many calls canceling apt this AM and workers snowed in. I think the whole state should agree to a snow day once a year.

Your bush does look pretty in it's snow blossoms.

Love the snow picturess
