Snow, Ice, & Lunar Eclipses!

Last week we got some pretty good snow accumulations. For years I complained that our girls would never have any snow to play in, but this year alone will make up for all of those winters we didn't get much snow! Today is the first day of winter and we've already had 2 or 3 measurable snows and a layer of ice!
Holly measured it for me one day when they went to play. It was so cold that I only let them stay about 15 minutes and they were froze by the time they came back in!
Snow angels!

The abominable snowman!

"Okay girls on the count of three jump!"


When they came in I had some hot chocolate waiting on them.

Is this really worth only 15 minutes of snow play?!

This might be worth it!

I did venture out to gather some snow for some snow cream! It has been years since I made any and it was pretty good!

We were under a winter storm warning for ice last week and after the previous ice storm we knew to get prepared for the worst! But this time wasn't too bad. There was a small layer of ice that is just now melting, but the electric didn't go off and it wasn't too bitterly cold. And for that I am very thankful!

Our dogwood tree covered in ice.

Brian's Jeep had a nice layer covering it.
We are suppose to get some more snow/ice for this Friday which coincidentally is also CHRISTmas Eve! So maybe we'll have a white CHRISTmas!!!

Also, we didn't get to see the Lunar Eclipse last night because it was too cloudy, but here is a video that Vision Forum had and it's pretty neat to see in case you missed it:

Have a very blessed week!

Did you tell me before that we have the same dishes??

I am not a fan of the cold, but my kids always loved all the snow and ice. The hot chocolate is my favorite part!

I hope y'all have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
