Let it snow!

Saturday it started snowing, and it snowed and it snowed and it snowed! For twelve hours, it snowed. Snow really does blanket the earth when it falls - it gets very quiet and still outside.
I get very excited when it snows - I have no idea why. I think it is the child within us that never tires of seeing snow. If I went to the doors to look out once, I must have gone fifty times. I had to keep up with its depth and whether it was still falling. As soon as there was a good accumulation of snow - I had to make snow cream - yummy! My husband, Jay, was not so impressed, but he ate some, I think just to humor me. I will attach a photo or two for you to see our 10+ inches of snow. One is of my friend, Melinda and her snowman! I was once again reminded that the blood of Jesus washes us as white as snow. Thank you, Jesus!

Good snow pics. What a peaceful time it was...til I splattered gloriously in the snow sliding down the patio ramp! Ouch! It was woth it. Funny how I always think I am 14 again when it snows and I can go out and play like back then...then reality hits!!

Wow, you guys got a lot of beautiful snow! In NC we got around 4-6" or so. I've never had snow creme though...guess I should have tried it this time.

Hope you're having a great week!
