Giddy over SNOW!

Yes, Virginia, it does (occasionally) snow in Georgia!



Living in the south . . . and we actually owned some
snow pants!



Snowball fights + wrestling in the snow =
fun, fun, fun!



He may be small . . . but he was mighty and held his own!



Meet Mr. Snowman (not an original name, but the
little guy insisted!)



And the great thing about living in the south? The snow comes, we enjoy it, and in 36 hours it's gone.

Really, I had forgotten how much work a snowfall can generate: getting dressed to go outside; losing and searching . . . and losing and searching . . . for five pairs of mittens; getting wet, coming in to dry off and take a hot shower, then going back out later to begin the cycle again; dripping puddles and puddles of water on the laundry room floor; and feeding hearty appetites resulting from all that outdoor air and exercise.

Sigh. It was so much fun. And I can launch a snowball with the best of them!

E' proprio vero, Maria, la neve è bella, ma quanto lavoro. Da noi quest'anno è venuta parecchie volte e non ti dico quanto abbiamo dovuto spalare per poter andare via con le macchine.
Poi Chiara può giocare con la neve solo con....me....aiuto!!!
Non so perchè, ma mi sono presa tante palle di neve sulla testa, mentre non sono riuscita praticamente mai a colpire Chiara.
E poi pulisci e lava tutto, una faticaccia.
Che bello Mr. Snowman, ha una espressione proprio birichina come quella di Timothy.

So you already have this year's Xmas photo? (#1)

And you have more snow than we do! I'm meant to go X-country skiing this year, but not enough snow at one time yet! So funny to see YOU all have it...

Maria la foto della tua casa è meravigliosa con la neve. L'ho salvata come sfondo del desktop! Mi dispiace ma ho preferito avere questa foto sul desktop invece di quelle con i tuoi bambini. Che cattiva!! bacioni
