Somehow, Somewhere, Hell Has Frozen Over.

That's right.  It's a cold day in Georgia.   It started snowing at around 11 am, and didn't stop until after 6.  The kids were in Heaven.  Well, maybe not Ladybug.  It was  a little cold outside.  

Sunshine got the opportunity to make her very first snowman.  Much time was spent debating what material should be used for the snowman's eyes.  Dark chocolate covered almonds, mulch, more carrots.  It all stopped when Sunshine said that the perfect material for the eyes was dog poop.  Daddy made an immediate judgement call.  Mulch it was.  

Ladybug thought it was a little too cold.  She stuck it out for a while, but eventually the need for nap time won over.  It might be a few more years before she really loves it, or she might take after her Mom.  I don't think snow is anything I'll ever get used to.  There's a reason we live in Georgia.  

It was a beautiful day.  Snow has such a healing quality to it.  Well, at least freshly fallen snow does.  It makes even the ugly parts of Atlanta pretty.  I'm sure it will make for a nightmarish commute for Todd tomorrow, but we enjoyed it today.  Hopefully we won't see it again until next year.  I'm just about ready to tell Old Man Winter to suck it.  (Or as some of my other family members would say, inhale deeply!)  

*** And Congratulations to Kris for her hard work and dedication.  She was the random winner of a DVD copy of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred!  Thanks to everyone for their favorite weight loss tips!

Mom, is that you?

A few minutes out in sub-freezing temperatures without a coat never hurt anyone. If I took the time to go get my coat, I would have missed out on Anna Grace's (negative) reaction to her first substantial snow. We went out again later, and I had on a coat.

How awesome for you. Ok, maybe not you but the girls. Maybe Ladybug didn't like it this time but hey, it's a new thing. Next time just sit her outside with a bowl of sour cream and she'll be fine. Love you. Kirha
