What a Wonderful Snow!

I know so many of you had wonderful snow today, too! I can say it was wonderful because it doesn't happen that often here and we didn't have to deal with the nasty side of it at all. That being said, I thought I would share what our family did today.
Mercy was spending the night with Grandma because of the marriage conference, but got temporarily snowed in there. We got her back this evening, but we missed all the snow with her. Hear she spent about four hours out in it, though.
Anyway, here is John trying to walk in the snow. His poor little shoes were completely covered. He had been in snow a year ago, but he couldn't walk then and of course he doesn't remember so it was new all over again.

In this picture John was mad that the snow was cold! It was hysterical to hear him saying "Ow! Mommy, cold! Ow!" it was a really cute face, too.

I am learning to take self portraits of me and the kids, otherwise I would never get any of me in them! Especially on days like this, because even though my husband was home, he hates the snow and calls it "evil" so I was on my own! John sure was having fun, I love that grin!

This is the view of half our driveway. If you are wondering what the little snow covered balls are, they are sweetgum balls. Cute, huh?

I love this view, no matter how many times I look at it! I thank God for His glory and the beauty He surrounds us with. If you are ever going over the mountain on Hwy 280 and you see the mountain on the left, we live almost at the top of that. This is the view from our backyard, looking up the remainder of the mountain. Ahhh, gorgeous!

This is my windchime. I don't know if you can tell, but it is encased in snow. Still sounded pretty, though!
