WOW! The weatherman was right...this time :-)

Hey ya'll!

Guess what? The weather"people" of Georgia said it was gonna snow here...AND IT DID!!!

Yesterday, we got a call from the school system saying that the schools would be closing an hour early due to "impending inclement weather".  So I get to the school as I was told and I'll be darn if the flurries didn't start falling JUST as the kids were coming out of the building.

I grab my young un and we head to the grocery store along with the rest of the county. The parking lot was PACKED! And to think all I needed was apple juice and bananas :-). $50 later (yes, I picked up more than the aforementioned items), we're heading home. And when I say that we could hardly see 3 feet in front of us due to the, now heavy flurries, I mean it! It was amazing! And BEAUTIFUL!! Honestly, I was shocked at how quickly it started to stick. Jayla was BEEside herself!  Yesterday was (one of) the coolest days ever in her 8 years of life :-).

The snow continued through the night and the following are the gorgeous results...

Yes, in the picture above, our dog is eating the snow! :-)

Everytime I see this picture it makes me laugh.  Look at the smile on Trae's face! :-D

From what I understand, Georgia wasn't the only state hit with the cold white stuff!  In fact, I read somewhere that 49 of the 50 states had snow yesterday and today. That's just cool to me! I hear more is headed here tomorrow too.

Ok, so my nephew is getting married in May. This is really exciting to me because I actually introduced him to the lady he's marrying.  How cool is that? And...the news just gets "funner"...I will be doing 90% of the ceremony/reception decorating. I'm VERY excited about this too. So as I get things done, I'll share the pix with ya'll.

And speaking of sharing pix, how bout a flower fix? I haven't done one in a while.  Hope you enjoy them!

Well, that's it for today.  Hope to chat with ya'll in a couple days. Enjoy your weekend...enjoy the snow and be safe if you have to get out. Toodles!!

That looks like a lot of fun, especially for Jayla and Trae! You Southerners certainly make the best of the white stuff, don't you? But now, did you make snow ice cream? Huh, didja, huh?? ;D It's not a complete snow experience till you do!

Love the pics...and I was surprised to see that Jayla even had a snow jacket and gloves....I know it gets cold in GA but I didn't know it got that cold.

We got hit again this past weekend with the snow...but Baby C loves helping me do the snow blower so it works out as more fun than annoyance.
