We Have "Hydrangeas!!"

Y'all will not believe this. Seriously. It is snowing down here in the Heart of Dixie.

Now by "snow" I mean about 15 flurries, but if you don't think we didn't bundle up in 47 layers of our warmest clothes and go play in it, you are crazy, my friend.

Then after about 15 minutes of "is this all there is?" and "mommy, I can't even catch the snow on my tongue" kinds of comments, I brought my frozen children inside for a fabulous snack of Goldfish.

And the best part is, the weather people didn't even predict this one. We were totally surprised.

Thank you, Dear Lord, for the snow. We loved it. And I, particularly, appreciate it more today because the kids were already home due to a holiday. Let the regularly scheduled school day tomorrow commence. Mama needs a break from All The Inside Playing because of the cold weather.

LOL - And I read a blog today where a mom was rejoicing because it was warm enough "low 30's with some sun" so her boys could play outside!! Obviously made of different stock than this southern belle!

I saw two very very very small hydrangea petals float past my porch light. That was more than enough for me. I did NOT go outside. But I'm glad you're kids had fun. Maybe they will get more next time (and maybe I, only a few miles away, will have sun and warmth.)

LOL! Lucky dogs. I don't think we had any petals yesterday here in T'town. But my kids are waiting!
