our first snow of 2009

accumulation on our patio table
i'm so excited! it's our first snow of the year. snow isn't common for us. ice, sleet, yes. snow, no. my kids have probably had three good snows since they were born, one when my oldest was about 3 yrs old, the second about 4 years ago and one this past year. i love snow! the only thing better would be actual snow on christmas day.

That's a beautiful picture. I only want snow when it's cold outside. I don't think it should be cold outside unless it's snowing. It's just not worth it.

That is awesome. We never get that kind of snow either. The last "snow storm" was just flurries for 15 minutes in some areas. Boo! Hoping you get a white Christmas!

Small chance of snow here tonight & tomorrow. *Crossing my fingers*

WE got close to two feet here(we measured 18 inches) and usually we get far less becasue living by the ocean it usually turns to sleety snow and rain in winter. I am loving the white frozen tundra landscape outside(no melting yet)

I LOVE your "grow dreams" pic(looks like a future Christmas card image to me!)and your lit up(lit up? lit up on what?!) Snowman(top right).
