Snow Day!!!!

Tornadoes on Friday, and today we have snow? Gotta love the Alabama weather. Yes, the weather man finally got it right. We woke up this morning to snow falling, it only lasted a few hours at our house, but it was enough to satisfy the kids. This was the scene from my front door at 7:30 this morning. It was just starting to stick.
And this was at 8:00. Snowing REALLY HARD....
At 8:20...

At 8:45.... At 10:00 By 12:00 it was all melted :(

He couldn't wait to get out and play in the snow! When he saw the snow he said "It can't be snowing, it's not Christmas anymore..." Poor child, has only seen snow in Christmas movies...

Ready to slam Mama with a snowball

If you look closely you can see the incoming snowball thrown by his friend Allyssa who lives next door.

Poor baby has been so sick. She has Strep Throat AND Flu. Talk about miserable! Bless her heart...her first REAL snow and she was too sick to play in it. She asked a few times to go out an play, but I told her she could only go out for a few minutes and she needed to wait until there was more accumulation (it was really snowing hard and I thought there would be more). When it stopped snowing, I finally gave in and let her go out with a time limit of 10 minutes, but by the time we got her all bundled up, almost all of the snow had melted! Seriously, we're talking 10 minutes! It's a good thing though, because she didn't argue about coming inside after only about 5 minutes outside...there's no fun playing in the freezing cold mud and she feels pretty rotten.
