Winter Wonderland



We actually had snow twice in one week! Can you believe it? We are still thanking God for it. Saturday brought a beautiful day of snowflakes, homemade cocoa and all the little girls in the neighborhood. It seems like every time I turned around there was a little girl saying "Mrs. P. will you dry this for me? I'm so cold!" I guess it's good I'm short, they could all wear my sweat pants!

They went back and forth between playing outside and playing Chloe's High School Musical DVD game. I loved every minute of it.

I have to say, I was very proud of my daughters. They went out of their way to make sure everyone was included and had a good time. No little girl tiffs here on Saturday. And if you have little girls, you KNOW what I'm talking about here.

For the grandparents, here are a few pictures from Saturday.






And before anyone asks. YES, my children were warm enough. They had on several layers of clothes! We did about 10 loads of laundry Sunday most of which was worn on Saturday. :)

jealous of the snow! (ours practically melted as it hit the ground)

your girls are beautiful as always! my best friend has two daughters and a little boy...one is 13, and the other is 7...so they've got little girl tiffs, and teenager tiffs going on...fun times!

hahaha that is great that they wore your sweat pants! :)

What fun!! We got some snow on Saturday up here in the mountains, too. Of course I didn't have little girls running around playing in it. This girl just put on her sweats and enjoyed it from inside.

My dad lives in Woodstock (I am guessing about 40 minutes from you) and he called to tell me that it was snowing there --- we didnt even get snow in East TN. What is up with that? I am jealous. Looks like everyone had fun (except the laundry part - that stinks).
