Disappointment

The snow skipped right over us. It went east and everywhere else got snow but we got left out this time. The kids were very disappointed,especially Lucas! Every school district surrounding us is out of school today so our school is the black sheep this morning all by its lone in session. Even though it didn't snow the kids got a bit of excitement from the expectation of it. Priceless!



Before we went to bed last night there were a few flurries so David went outside to make fun and eat snow :)





This was ALL we got! I felt bad for the kids this morning because they truly believed that the weather man was right but secretly I was alittle relieved. We've already been home for a four day weekend and I was ready for a break. Shh...don't tell anyone! I do hope they get some snow before the end of the winter this year though...for some good snow pictures that is :)

Id be happy to ship say about 18 inches your way...I mean my kids can't even walk in the backyard without it going up to their hips...So sad. I am happy for you and sad for the kiddos who wanted the snow!!

Yep, Mine looked the same way.. Just a dusting on my car and lil bit on the ground. What's crazy is like 10 mins from here they got almost a solid inch on the ground. NO FAIR!

Hi Stephanie, I jsut found your blog through Momstheword and thought I would say hi. Sorry your kids were disappointed about the lack of snow. You can have ours though! We got 5 inches last week. Nice to meet you!

I am so telling your kids...not! I totally can relate. You look so forward to the weekends and then Sunday you are so ready for them to go back to school and me work. Snow is nice sometimes, though.
