Snow Day 2014

South Carolina doesn't get snow very often.  When it does, we have to make the most of it!  The news said we got between two and four inches.  Seems about right from what we saw.  When James saw the snow for the first time, he said "Uh oh.  Boken."  Everything that is NOT as it should be to him is 'broken' or "boken" as he says it.  Definitely the white-coated world outside his window qualified as "boken!"  

We played in the snow for about thirty minutes.  James had fun walking around in it.  He refused to wear gloves, but didn't seem to mind the cold. (It was about 35 degrees.)  Reese on the other hand, wanted to touch the snow until she did and realized it was COLD.  She started crying and didn't stop for ten minutes after we went inside.  Her poor little hands were so red and cold!  We don't own a snow shovel (because why would we??), so instead of shoveling our driveway, I swept it with a broom and used a rake to get the icy parts.  Fun times!

We had some hot chocolate.  Scott made us some yummy cookies.  All in all it was a good day.  Hopefully it will all melt away tomorrow.  This stuff is really annoying to actually have to live with on a daily basis.  I don't know how so many of you do it!

The backyard.

James needed snow tires or chains or something for his car.  He kept saying "Stuck! Halp!"

Glad y'all had fun in it. I think Reese & Aden feel the same about the snow. I, on the other hand, could enjoy it for hours as long as my feet are dry!!
