The boys spent Thursday evening on the iPad face timing Pa who was getting snow, lots of snow, at her house. They loved it. I was sad we weren't getting any and had very little hope it would make it it to us but, it was COLD outside!
The boys went to bed about 9 and at about 10:30 it started to "snow" a tiny tiny bit. So , I puled them out of bed and they sleepily walked outside to see it. Colt was all smiles. Chase was TIRED! Colt wrote his name in the snow on the hood of my car and we went in. They fell asleep quickly and so did I . Zak was out of town doing a Toy Drive in Beaumont so at 2 am Sadie woke me up to go out. I opened the back door to a WINTER WONDERLAND! It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL. White powdery (not icey) snow covered the entire yard and big snow flurries were falling. All I kept saying was, "Everyones missing this!" I was so excited I could hardly stand it. Sadie had potty but didn't know what on earth was going on. I thought, "do I wake the boys!?!?!?!" I took some pictures and jumped on FaceBook to share my excitement. A few people were up and I was so excited!!!! After being up about an hour I felt certain the snow would still be there in the morning. I decided not to wake the boys and go back to sleep. About 3:30 I set my alarm for 5:45 and fell back asleep. I jumped out of bed to look out the window at 5:45 and was over the moon to see the snow! I got up, made a HOT cup of coffee, finished up the boys lunches and woke them at 6. They were SO EXCITED! We played in the snow for about 30-40 minutes and all had so much fun.
(The top three pics were from the 10 o'clock wake up. Look how sleepy Chase was!
The rest of the pics were from our early morning play in the snow!)
The trip to the bus stop was one we won't soon forget!
When the boys arrived at school, all the kids went to play (Not k and 1st).
They made the local news and then the nightly national news!
Everything was ABSOLUTELY beautiful! Driving into Foundry was amazing!
Here is our little snow family at about 6am.
At 4:20 when the boys got off the bus, they were the only snow left in our yard!
