Let It Snow!

"Oh, the weather outside is frightful,

But the fire is so delightful!

And since we've no place to go,

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!"

Are you getting any snow today?

Here in the Chicago area we're supposed to be getting several inches!

The girls were very excited, till it came time to bundle up before leaving the house for school. Then our living room turned into a 3-ring circus!

Someone stepped in a wet puddle left over from yesterday's melted snow by their boots and had to change socks. Then another child came to me looking like the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, complaining that she couldn't snap the hard snaps on her coat nor could she put on her hat with her fat gloves on. After getting on dry socks from the "puddle in the house" incident, my youngest was crying because her pinky finger wouldn't fit inside her new gloves. Sure enough, it was sewn wrong inside & I've got to order another pair!

My little Southerners had better get used to winter again in the Midwest!

After dropping the girls off at school this morning, I drove around snapping a few wintry pictures!

The first picture is from the Christmas decorations in my girls' bedroom. It totally reminds me of them! One with reddish hair, and one with blonde!
I love this! It looks so vingage-y and cute!!

And the picture below is a sneek peek of my kitchen decorations
(which you'll get to see very, very soon!),
based around a:
"Mrs. Claus's Sweet Shoppe"

Till next time....

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

Stacey the snow is BEAUTIFUL at your home! I wish we would get some too. Send it over to NC okay.

Many Holiday Blessings!

Beautiful pics, beautiful post! Makes me wish we were getting snow instead of this downpour!

Thank you so much for your prayers yesterday, God bless you!

Oh funny, your morning sounds like many that I went through with 4 kids, each about 2 years apart. The first snow was always the wildest because they just couldn't wait to get outside in it. Why is it that one pair of gloves go to school but only ONE glove comes home? Anyway we have close to a foot of snow on the ground with it still coming down and I am on VACATION!! Have a great day!

No snow for us so far, and I can't say I'm not happy about it! I've had enough snow and would move a bit further south in a minute if I could. Love that teaser picture; the word "sugarplums" comes to mind!

Here in Ohio, we had just a little dusting yesterday. Although I am not one who especially likes the cold and snow, it sure made me want a wintry snow storm! I wouldn't mind being all cuddled up inside watching the snow fall and of course with a hot drink in hand.

Your pictures are beautiful. Enjoy the snow!!!
