Having grown up in a part of the world where snow could begin as early as October and last through April, the excitement of white flakes never ceases to bring a smile to my face. The rumors of 5-7 inches caused the usual hustle and bustle of bread & milk buying, searching for snow gear, and constant peeking through windows for the tiny flakes to appear. We were not disappointed! A few flakes appeared around sunset with more accumulating by the hour. It was the powdery kind, not snowman or snowball worthy, but great for sledding and pure fun!
The morning greeted us with a blanket of white goodness, perfect for snow cream (compliments of Daddy!) and warm cinnamon rolls (one of my new recipes of the month - check!)
The morning encompassed sledding, tubing, and more sledding. We love our neighborhood more and more, watching the kids share sleds and dads helping push whoever's next in line.
Someone wanted to imitate big sister, but found the experience quite unpleasant.
Even little missy got in on the sledding fun!
The backyard was tackled after a quick lunch. We all worked together to make a fort since a snowman seemed a little too difficult. I even put down the camera for a bit to work up a little sweat in delivering arm loads of snow. Snow fluff fights, sliding on our playset, and just enjoying every minute possible was our main goal for the day. Snow days in North Carolina are days like no other. Schedule and routine go out the window while family, fun, & food monopolize the hours instead.
Snow days with these three are always worth it (even with the laundry that comes later...)
The evening ended well with chili and corn chips followed by singing worship songs with daddy on the guitar. I could truly sing "Bless the Lord, oh my soul, oh my soul. Worship His holy name. Sing like never before, oh my soul. I'll worship Your holy name."
