I went out of town this weekend on a beach trip with some friends. We had SUCH a good time.

Wanna know what we did?

Nothing. Nada. We rebuked all schedules and didn't look at the clocks. It was 3 days of unscheduled relaxation. Wonderful. We all had massages on Saturday, which was great, except for Miss Chatty Masseuse that didn't close her mouth for the entire 80 minute massage. It felt great, but wasn't the "so relaxing I could fall asleep" experience I was going for.

Then we decided to come home early because a gigantic winter storm was supposed to hit Alabama and blanket us with 4-8 inches of snow. You know how I feel about a snow forecast in Alabama.

But this time, Mr. Meteorologist was RIGHT!

What a beautiful blessing! Thank you, Lord! We had a ball playing in the snow.

And note to self: buy waterproof gloves for myself and the kids. Our cute, cloth gloves didn't do the trick today.

Have a great Monday!

And yes the cloth gloves that we have a TON of did not work for the WET COLD snow!
We let the boys borrow our ski gloves - they are HUGE on them but it worked :)
So glad you had a good time

Yes, goodness, not to self here too. Function over fashion in the glove department for my princess. The son was fine in his waterproof one, but we had to rotate my daughters in the dryer! :-)

Your pictures are beautiful.

Fun times in Alabama! :)

Fran said... Southerners aren't really prepared for the snow. We were pretty redneck-y!

Welcome home!
