east tn snow

yesterday all day long it snowed! it didnt accumulate to much but then it snowed last night too so when we got up this morning everything was pretty white. not a ton, but enough for the kids to want to go and have snow ball fights. i am such a party pooper when it come to the snow. i guess it is my florida blood. i just get so cold. yesterday the girls and i didnt go outside at all. garret got to play a little with dad while he worked out at the camp. today (no school again!) my kids werent going to let me get away with not going outside to play. so we bundled everyone up and headed out. it actually wasnt to bad. i guess i am just lazy, getting everyone ready go is a big job, seeing no one can put their own jacket on, zip it up, put shoes on and tie them, get gloves or mittens, and at hat all by themselves yet. anyway, we had a fun time. brenna was just checking evreything out, trying to figure out what it was, rae played for awhile and then her poor little hands and face were frozen, garret played forever. he doesnt feel the cold at all. he loved it. he collected snow for a snow man, made tons of snow balls, "Ice skated" and just had a good ol time. of course i had my camera out....

realyn trying to get garret with a snow ball

this is why her hands were frozen. it is hard to find water proof gloves for itty bitty hands


my parents gave the kids a tire swing for christmas. it has all their names painted on it.




you know the girl in willie wanka that turns into a blue berry......

We got snow too! And I second your comment about it being a ton of work to get them ready...and that they don't make good gloves for itty bitty hands! But we had fun out there (though we didn't last as long as Garret) and looks like you all did too! Love ya!
