We were lucky enough to get some snow recently. Just enough to cover the ground and build a snowman...and keep daddy home from work! It was a wonderful time for us. We stayed close to the fire(first time to turn it on actually) when we were inside and stayed buried in the snow when we were outside. The best of both worlds I would say! Greer loved drinking hot chocolate all day! I actually think the tiny marshmallows and chocolate straw were his favorite part of the whole process. We made our first big green egg pizza and built our first snowman as a family(well, the boys really did all the work). Greer requested a blue scarf and Jeremy got creative(surprise) and used golf tees for the mouth and golf balls for the eyes. How Augusta like of him! We even found a real carrot for the little guy's nose. Hope absolutely loves the snow too! She loves catching the snow balls in her mouth. We let her follow behind us on the golf cart most of the time and she ran with joy to be out in this white mess. We ventured over to the soccer fields nearby for some good ol' Georgia snow fun! Our sweet friends pulled us behind their golf cart....Jeremy on his snow board and the kids and me on the boogie board. Such good times! Greer and Jeremy snuck out in the morning while baby sister was napping and went sledding down the slopes on the 18th hole on Jeremy's snow board. This was such a memorable two days for our family. We would "warmly" welcome more snow if it wants to come back again. Greer was once again a trooper! He took the cold and wet like a champ! Can't wait to get this boy on the real slopes!! Unfortunately, many of our family in friends back in Alabama were experiencing snow in a different way. They received an unexpected amount of snow and ice leaving many of them without choice but to abandon their cars and walk home...all because their was a forecast of some "light dusting". So glad everyone we know was safe and warm! Central Alabama made national news because of the tragedies so many people faced this day
The night before...it was 9:30, so Greer should have been long gone asleep. I could see his little eyes still open on the monitor and I couldn't resist, so I went and got him so he could see the snow. He was so excited to see the snow falling from the sky and even more thrilled to wake up the next morning to find it had covered the ground for us to play in!
