Our First Snow of the Season!

Austin got an early birthday present. He has been praying for some snow! We didn't think it was going to happen, but at 9:30pm last night some snow started to fall. Of course we had to get the kids out of bed and let them go play in the snow! It was a good thing we did because later it began to rain and the snow all melted away. There wasn't any snow left when the morning got here. Wes was pretty disappointed when he woke up this morning. The first then he said when he got up was "watch the snow." We actually went to sleep last night watching the snow fall outside our windows. Snow is so pretty. Since the snow all melted work and school were not cancelled much to the disappointment of most of us. Looks like those in the upstate, where we used to live, got a bit luckier. They had more school closings and things. Oh well....maybe we'll have another snow day before the season is over! :) I got exactly two pictures before my camera battery died. I didn't realize it was so low. I was very disappointed that I didn't get a lot of pictures of the kids playing in it. So, I'm going to be more careful about making sure the batteries are charged up. I have a feeling my batteries are draining very quickly! Might need to replace them!
