Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow

First, please note the new prayer requests at the side. Brian has tests next week and I thought this was a good way of letting you know what our needs are on a daily basis.

We got our first measurable snowfall of the season Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. It was about an inch or so. Barely enough to measure. Grant came out of his room, looked out the front window, gasped and ran into our room saying, "Daddy, you GOT TO wake up and see what happened last night." He went running around trying to wake up the house. We were already awake. He was like at kid at Christmas. He went downstairs, looked under the Christmas tree, and sadly walked away saying, "We didn't get any presents this year." Turns out he thought it WAS Christmas. I said, "Grant, just because it snows doesn't mean it's Christmas." He said, "Yes, it does." That's right. I keep forgetting that I am stupid. Silly me.

After I convinced them to wait until after breakfast, I dressed them to play in the snow. I was all dressed to work out, thought better of it remembering this is WHY I stay home and went out with the boys this morning to enjoy the beauty and their reaction to it.

I was reminded of why I LOVE snow:

And why I HATE Snow:



  1. Great pictures. We are waiting for our first snow. There is a winter weather advisory for St. Louis tonight, so we may get lucky. That's funny how Grant thought it must be Christmas because of the snow. My boys think along the same lines. I like that you added the prayer requests in your sidebar. We'll get busy!

  2. I keep forgetting its December down in the Carolinas. :-) I also like the prayer requests and updates for Brian, Mindi, etc... Christmas will be here before we know it!!

  3. I hate the coat and glove drop that happens right inside the door. Drives me bananas.
    I hope all goes well with the tests.
