Dreams Really do Come True

Can you tell what we've been dreaming of lately? Here's a clue...

Does that give it away? No? Then how about this?

Hmmm? Got it yet?

Well, when we woke up this morning, we had quite a surprise. There were seven inches of the white stuff piled in the front yard, on the street, on our back sledding run, on the cars, even on the bird feeder and garbage can lid. The weatherman told us only to expect an inch.

Aren't surprises wonderful?

So, instead of going to school, we did a little of this...

And we did a little of this...

We even (because some of us are crazy boys) did this!

Yes, those are icicles in his hands... (oh, brother!)

We had tons of fun playing snow tag and making snow angels so deep they almost buried us. Thanks to an industrious neighbor thrilled to use a brand new snow blower, we didn't even have to shovel the walk! (The driveway? That's another story... Hubby might need a hot bath later.)

All in all, there's nothing like a little fun to keep your mind off the heavy stuff. And a little dream come true never hurt anyone.

  1. Cool :) we had only a little,it's mostly ice from before here! I can't wait for the spring though, even if my daughter is so happy with all the snow!

  2. What a lovely dream to have come true. Snow has a way (at least the first day or two) of making everything feel fresh and new. Enjoy the moment.

  3. I remember school getting cancelled for a snow day feeling like an extra day to live as a child. Looks like you guys had a great day!

  4. Love your site design!

    It looks like the kids are having a blast in all that snow. There's nothing like snow days!

  5. So glad it snowed for you guys - I just love the snow! How fun!

    Have a great time - Kellan

  6. OOh I am almost jealous but I do hate the cold. What sweet pictures! Maybe I'll try to beckon some snow with a paper calling card too!

  7. I'd nearly forgotten what snow looks like, I swear! I know those who are used to snow don't think of it as anything but a hassle (and it IS freaking annoying and hard work having to shovel sidewalks and driveways) but it really is lovely. I kind of miss it! Not the scared to drive portions (I'm a very timid driver) but it really is just so picturesque! It makes everything seem so much cosier when its snowing out and you're snug and warm inside as well.
