This is What a White Christmas Looks Like

The Blizzard of 2009. A mere dusting for those who live even 100 miles north of us, but a gargantuan "weather event" for meterologists around here and us snow rookies. It was indeed a white Christmas... and here is what we saw: Snow starting to accumlate on Granny's porch on Christmas Eve.
Excitement on the faces of all the kids! It's SnOwInG!
Big winter coats and snow boots!
Terrible visibility during the harrowing ride home. Would love to say I wasn't a backseat driver, but oh no, that didn't happen. I'm sure it didn't help Tom's sense of calm for me to squeal out: "slow down!" "watch out!" "I'm too young to die!!" (j/k on the last one). Cars and trucks in the ditch (look carefully and you will see this pick up truck nose down).

More cars in the ditch on Christmas morning.
And more cars abandoned on the side of the road while driving out to Nana and Papas.
Snow plows.
It was like a car graveyard.
More snowplows.
Papa on his 4-wheeler out on the farm.
Snowball fights.
Rides in the snow (Tom and Maggie)
A dusting of snow on a beauty.
A warm and toasty friendship.
Fun in the white stuff!
The making of snowangels.
A perfect Snowangel!
Big SmilesHappy FacesSledding in the park with Uncle Jon. Tom and Ellie!

May your days be merry and bright, and may all your Christmases be white.

I'll trade you! You can have our snow and we'll take yours! Yours actually looks fun - our 18 inches - not so much!

You always know just how to describe things...

LOVE seein' our hubbies brave the cold and spend time with our little ones in the snow.

Just saw the passage at the bottom of your blog - ahhh, so powerful!!

Looks like the kids (and hubby!) had so much fun! What a great surprise! We wanted to try this week to drive somewhere where there is snow so the kids could play, but it appears it has all melted in TN and the Carolinas. Not really willing to drive further. We'll have to wait for our day or two of it in January or February! :-)
