This has been such a crazy couple of days!! We have had two full days of snowy fun, which in unheard of for Charleston!!
It was so much fun to be out in the snowfall. This was heavier than any that I had ever been in and it was fabulous! We had so much fun playing in it- the kids and dog loved it as well! It actually ‘snowed’ for several hours yesterday. We told our kids to enjoy every second, because it may be twenty years before they see it like this again!!
We had snowball fights and made snow cream! We were finally able to build a snowman today (since it started slowly melting and became slightly more of a wet snow). We named our snow lady Veronica and she might look pitiful… but we made memories that will last a lifetime!! If you go just a little into the woods behind our house, you will come to a small creek. We went back there twice to see how it looked in the snow and if it was frozen. The winter wonderland was so beautiful!
It was a lot of fun this morning when we first got up- we walked around the yard and could see all of the deer tracks in the snow!
We got out the kids boogie boards and slid down a ditch. We went for walks and have had two full days of family time! ❤️
I’m the type of person that can get very cold, very fast. So our outside time was frequently interrupted with breaks inside to ‘ thaw out’. But that’s ok!! We were able to get several episodes of The Flash in!
You could never stay in too long! I think we all knew how special it is to have snow like this in our area and didn’t want to risk missing out on too much!
Our sweet Jasper loved playing in the snow! When we took him in for breaks- he just wanted to come back out!
Tomorrow morning when we wake up, there will still be snow on the ground. We’ve told the kids that they can go out for a little bit in the morning, but then after that we are getting some school in!! As much as I love this snow! I feel like this right after Christmas break and all that our family has been through… I am ready for some sort of normalcy. I need routine!
I have enjoyed playing in the snow, no school, ignoring laundry, and making a big/late breakfast for my family… but in reality I know that’s not real life!
We are going to get up and savor a few more hours and then hopefully have a healthy dose of routine!!
Stay safe and enjoy the weather!! ❄️
