{already missing the fluffy, white snow…}

Yesterday a wish of my kiddos came to fruition… it snowed here in South Carolina!  They’ve been wishing for snow since we moved here 2 years ago.  We got snow each year in Snoqualmie so it was strange for them not to get a taste of it each year.  Tyler was so excited at the thought that we might get snow that he woke up at 3am (that’s not a typo) to look outside only to be let down that there wasn’t any.  He was up on and off all morning and both kids squealed with anticipation when big white flakes finally began to fall from the sky.  Of course we spent most of the day outside playing in it, eating it, riding bikes in it, throwing it, etc.  They both made a ‘snow pie’ – you know, a bowl full of snow and I chopped up bits for fruit and put it in the bowl (as they stirred it) and then they ate it.  So fun!  We also made real snow cones! That was such a treat – I poured FUZE juice in it and they were giggling with excitement.  Then we took breaks , came in and had hot cocoa topped with mini marsh mellows.  This was the best winter day yet!    Now it’s melting and Tyler and Brielle keep asking when we’ll get more.  I’m afraid this was the last of it, but we enjoyed it while it was here.    Below are a few pictures of the snow! 

The first thing both kids did…. let the snow drop onto their tongue;-)

Tyler running to throw a snowball at daddy’s truck!  I’ve never seen someone love the snow as much as Tyler, he couldn’t get enough of it.

Brielle the problem solver:  She insisted on wearing her sunglasses so the snow wouldn’t get in her eyes.  She didn’t take them off until the snow stopped blowing so hard.  I couldn’t resist running in to get my camera to remember this moment.   Oh and she has a spoon and an apple slice in her hand making her tasty snow pie.

Oh my goodness… what beautiful images of the snowfall. I so miss the snow. Granted Nashville didn’t get much of it when we lived there but considering Florida doesn’t get any… I do miss the little we did get. :) Beautiful work as always! :)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I love your work and can’t wait to see more–I’ve added you to my Google Reader so I’ll definitely be back.

These pictures of the snow are gorgeous…I feel just like your kids. I’ve lived in Texas my whole life and just started school in upstate New York this year. Snow is definitely amazing :]

Kara MayJanuary 22, 2009 - 10:29 am

lol – If only snow can be sent. We would take truck loads ;) There’s still a little bit of snow on the ground since it’s so cold but tomorrow should be 60+ degrees so it will be gone soon :(
Thanks for the comments :)

HayleyJanuary 22, 2009 - 10:26 am

My heart is aching a looking at these photos. You are so lucky to get to see snow!! Oh what I would give to have some….I’m glad you posted these though, they make me happy and feel like I got to “experience” it a little.

MeganJanuary 22, 2009 - 1:24 am

Those first few shots are just WOW..love them..and of course the ones of oyor kiddos so fun..I can’t say that I would want to deal w/ snow on a regular basis..I’m such a baby..BUT..I know my kids would love it..just for a day…bet it’s so much fun!

Lisa LenderinkJanuary 22, 2009 - 12:36 am

Great memories you captured! I will gladly send Tyler some
of our snow. I can’t remember when we’ve had as much snow
as we do this year. We got over 40″ just in December!

Since we are so used to snow, I guess I forget about some of the
fun things you can do….great idea about the snow cones.

My kids would love that! :)

The sunglasses crack me up!

amanda andrewsJanuary 21, 2009 - 10:28 pm

They can have our snow :)
but really these are such fun fabulous shots!

PennyJanuary 21, 2009 - 9:26 pm

Tyler LOVED the snow from his first year on and Brielle hated the snow from the first. Glad to see how much fun they BOTH are having. Wish we could be there with them.

Jamie KutterJanuary 21, 2009 - 8:41 pm

Hi Kara! Your work is so beautiful. I love looking at your blog. I am SO jealous of the snowy road….that is to die for!

SelenaJanuary 21, 2009 - 7:03 pm

Oh how fun!! So many times we, in Michigan, think about how big of a pain the snow is to us. But looking at these photos have really inspired me to ENJOY all 5+ inches that we do have. :) So happy you and your kiddos could enjoy the fluffy white stuff. :)

Jessica FeelyJanuary 21, 2009 - 6:08 pm

Hey! Thanks for visiting my site/blog..:) Your pictures are amazing and I love them! I cannot believe how gorgeous it is where you are. You are not missing much in Seattle…just a bunch of fog and rain. I love your site too, I hopefully will get one in the next couple of months:) I’m sure I will be a regular on here now!
