spreading the love

Do you remember when you were little and your parents would tell you, "Eat your peas, there are starving children in Ethiopia", or something like that. My kids can hardly believe that there are places without snow, but would like to move to said places as soon as possible to escape any more shoveling. Today we have no snow outside, just sunshine. I thought it might be nice to share all our snow with all of you in blog land that don't get any. So here are a few pictures from the last two weeks to cheer all you "non-snowy" bloggers (and probably make you even more glad that you don't get any snow).


I know it's a picture of shoes, but it's not just shoes. It's shoes on top of the snow instead of sinking down a few inches (like they should if it was JUST snow).
Here's where Chris learns that his mom has tricked him into shoveling ice, and not snow. After this the jig was up and he came inside.


I told you, before, that I like to measure snow by the back deck. This all appeared in a few short hours.

Okay this wasn't taken last week, but I had to throw a picture of the kids in the snow for good measure.

Sure, snow isn't all about the shoveling and the driving in there are lots of fun things you can do in the snow.

Like building a snowman.

It's obvious my kids haven't really gotten the idea, but I'm working on it.

You can go sledding.




If you're a curious cat you can sniff the snow.

I was so waiting for that bush to dump all it's snow on Jinx, but no such luck. What a lucky little kitty.

And, of course, you can just enjoy the snow. Often it really is very pretty to look at.

Jennifer - thanks for stopping by! I can relate to your snowy photos. We just had a bunch of rain a few days ago that did melt 95% of our snow, thank goodness...a temporary reprieve. :o)

Just had a peek at your tu-tus. They are lovely. I am the proud mama of two little princesses. I will be baaaack!

You do have some gorgeous snow! Here...it's in the upper 60's. It poured on Christmas day - just without the cold part that could have made it all gorgeous here too...

Thanks for stopping by! I too am a mom of four. I stopped by handful of blessings to see a mom of eight!
I love your sense of humor. I am from Erie, Pa. and am a snow/ice expert.
I left there at 18 and reside in sunny south Florida, missing the snow only during the holidays.
I look forward to stopping back by to say hello!

Thanks for visiting my blog :-)

Love the snow and am still waiting for some here too! Shoveling it can be a bit daunting though I know...but my kids can't wait and are so impatient, hehe!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Awesome photos! I can't show them to my kids, though - they'll be so bitter that we don't live there...

Oh I love the white fluffy delightful snow. Can't get enough of snowman-building, sledding, skiing, snowmobiling, hot chocolate sipping. Love it! Love your pix too!

Thanks for sharing your snow pictures-There is nothing more beautiful than a snow covered tree. We are in sunny California and although I don't like being in the cold, I love how it looks.
