Snow day

My 2010 Snow Buddies ~ January 2010

It doesn’t take much snow in Atlanta to get everyone all excited. In fact I get excited just over seeing a few flurries.  So we can make a lot happen with just a half-inch!!!

And that’s what we got Thursday evening.  Schools closed  & Pepper was home from work.  We tried to stay warm, stay busy & have fun!!

We celebrated the Snow with an impromptu “SNOW DAY of Fun”.

We ate White SNOW Powdered Doughnuts for Breakfast.

Snow Powdered Doughnuts

Watched “SNOW” Themed Movies (Curious George Plays in the Snow, Snow Buddies, and Ice Age).

Movies & Popcorn

Ate Smores from the fire.

Yum! Yum!

And of course got some sledding fun in too!!  Poor Megan only lasted about five minutes but Evan was absolutely LOVING it!!

Sledding (on ice)

I really love the snow, but goodness gracious I get stir crazy fast!!!  I would love a big-time snow (you know, 3-4 inches – ha!), but I think now (as a parent of two little ones and not the excited teen/adult missing school or work) I’d want it all melted & gone in about two days!!  Times have definitely changed:)

IF this happens again, I’ll have to be a little more prepared!!!

Snowing that is:)  I wish I had a digital camera (mine broke – so sad), because it’s so pretty.  We’re up to a good little stinking on the ground & back deck.

Ok – I promise that’s all the meteorologist updates I’ll post for the evening.  But if this becomes the blizzard of ’08, now that will be another story!  It’s going to be a long night w/ good ole’ Glen & the Severe Weather Team.

I just looked up & out the window … it’s snowing:)  I think flurries is more accurate, but we haven’t seen snow in a while!!  We haven’t seen real snow since the “blizzard of ’93” … I’d be so happy to see something like that again.  It doesn’t take much here in GA to stop the presses, but I still get giddy when there’s a chance.  I watch the news as if I’m going to get out of school the next day – which isn’t going to happen either way b/c I’m not in school … I think it just makes me feel young still:)
