I looked out the window and what did I see?


In the 7 1/2 years we've lived here, this is the first time we've had snow in our yard!

When Emily told me there was frost all over the roof my first thought was, nuts. I forgot to cover up the plants. Then I looked outside and saw heavy, thick frost. WAIT A MINUTE! I remember that stuff from 17 years in Minnesota!

We had to commemorate this special event with an early-morning photo of the girls in flip flops and shorts. They were not jazzed about going outside in it but I said I needed the photo because they might not see snow in their backyard again until they're married. To which, Heidi immediately replied, "I'M NOT GETTING MARRIED!" (I don't see the 3-year-old boys knocking down the door, so I guess she's right - for now.)

Here's another photo of the yard without the girls. Yep - that last photo wasn't photoshop trickery. It snowed!

And everyone knows that no snowfall is complete until a snowman is created. Can you see ours? Look carefully - this is California.

You are so FUNNY! I wish we could have had enough snow to make a snowman or even Cinderella. Very exciting!

That's awesome! I'm glad the snow hit you instead of here. I have errands to run! You were in Utah for some winters, weren't you?

wasn't that a fun treat to wake up to? glad you got a snowman out of it!

Hilarious! I guess our mutual experiences from Minnesota had our minds thinking pictures just aren't posted yet. I took our kinder class out to play in the snow on the playground, they loved it! I even got enough snow off the tunnel to throw a snowball at the Piglet class!
