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.
