You Gotta Love SNOW in March


This is what we woke up to earlier this week! Yay!  The weather man FINALLY got it right!!!


Even better than having a SNOW DAY, though, was being able to spend the day with some of my precious family.


Me and "the girl" hangin' out in the snow.

Helping Poppa shovel the driveway.

How beautiful is this tree!!   And those "Carolina Blue" skies!! Doesn't get much better that this, does it?
 
Grace and Miss E spent the night with us Sunday night in expectation of having a snow day the next day. Champ was lovin' life, too!

Mimi and Poppa......

In a Winter wonderland!


The snowman at our local Starbucks.

Is this the way to travel or what?!?!?! 


Kickin' it back with The Poppa chauffeuring !


You know what you have to do when you are at your Mimi's house and your boots are at yours?

Packing tape and freezer bags --Works like a CHAMP!

We had to do plastic bags over socks on Caroline's hands because she left her gloves at school. LOVE the picture of Papa pulling the laid back E! What a MESS! Oh, I miss you guys! Love you and all these pics were great!!

I love the pictures! The plastic bags are too funny! Jerry did the same thing on Monday and the kids just died laughing! They were soooo embarrassed for him! Oh well, you do what you have to do! I noticed she had on a coat - glad you found one! Looks like you guys had a fun day too!

These pics of little E are so cute!! The one of you pulling her and her hands up in the air, mouth wide open is my favorite! LOL I remember doing the plastic bags and tape when I was little!

It was in the 70's here, today. Crazy!!

We had snow in Alabama! I never invested in a pair of boots for my kids, if it snowed,
it was double socks, sneakers,,, covered with plastic bags, and I used duct tape,,, haha. Hope it snows next year when my Grand Daughter is three, she would love it, I could just see her making snow angels with your precious baby "E", I love your beautiful family and pictures.
