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


Last night was the Christmas parade. I always wonder why they do it before Thanksgiving.  The longer I live here, the better I understand it.  Last night, it was C.O.L.D.

The very last of the leaves finally came down.

Very early this morning I noticed the remaining leaves from the backyard all blew down into the yard (the front did during our storms last week).

Still in his pajamas...just taking a few to run around in that first snow, woot!

When the snow started to fall this morning, I could not help but wake the youngest up to go run around in it. Despite my lack of enthusiasm for the winter (I hate driving in it), the first snow always makes me h-a-p-p-y.  There's just something magical about it, every single season.

The windshield of our car.
Bring on the Snow, woo hoo! 

This is what it looked like 5 minutes ago when I went outside to take another picture.  If it weren't for winter driving, which I hate, I would be a winter girl. I love, love, love the first snow!!! I am very glad, however, that they had that parade yesterday. ;)

Wishing everyone a happy weekend (snow or no snow). :)

Yeah if it weren't for driving I wouldn't hate it so much either, but because of that hate it all winter long

I like to see pictures of snow, and that's about it. I'm not a snow person. I don't like the cold. It could be 85 degrees year around for me and I'd be thrilled.

Have a fabulous day in the snow. :)

Not a fan of snow

I love the first snowfall too... but I am not a fan of snow after that... :)

Joyce Lansky said...

I'm jealous. We hardly ever get snow, and I miss it. There is nothing better than learning I have an unexpected a day off work due to snow!

Hi Rosey .. no snow here - but it's cooled off this evening. Your parade looks fun .. it's good to join in and see what's going on .. I'd rather we didn't have snow too - but I love it when it looks so pretty ... crisp and even ... cheers Hilary

I loved the snow when I was a kid! Snowmen, forts, snowball fights...just jumping around in it. Now that I'm not a kid (LOL)...it's hard to walk in, and looks like a grey slushy mess here in NYC. In so many ways, growing up spoils all your fun! scain54 (at) aol (dot) com

Like Spock above, snow was the greatest adventure. My mom hated it--wet boots, mittens, and coats hung to dry just in time to go out again. February was when winter lost its thrill.

No snow here this weekend right now, but does look pretty. But don't tell the snow hater in me that, lol!! :)

Kristi Maloney said...

We already had our first snowfall. It was a snow squall that left a dusting on our lawn. Can't say I was nearly as happy! lol It's fun when the kids get the occasional snow day off. I can share in that excitement. It reminds me of the good ol days of snow days!

Snow is beautiful to look at and miserable to travel through. Yep.

Masshole Mommy said...

They do our Christmas parade the Saturday after Thanksgiving and it's always flippin' freezing!!!

Robin O said...

It does seem quite early for a Christmas parade, but I'm glad you enjoyed it and stayed warm!

Karen Glatt said...

I bet you had a nice Christmas parade! I like the first snow too, but I do not drive, my sister does it for me, and she hates driving in the snow, especially around the snowy hills that we live by. I like the snow when I am inside the house with no where to go. This week there will be now snow, and it will be easier when we go out for Black Friday! You have a nice weekend!

no snow here...broxton keeps asking for it though...
hope it snows soon... but the ice can stay away...

Ann Jones said...

It snowed here before Halloween :) We always have long winters! I'm strange because I hate snow and cold weather, it has never been my thing. But my kids love it!

I love Christmas parades, but the cold is always so bad. Hope you had a wonderful time. This will be our first Christmas living here in Orlando, will see what they have going on. Weather wise it's great can't complain.

I am here dreaming what snow is like! I hope you have a white Christmas Rosey! I would have been thrilled to see the parade. It looks so beautiful. It is always great to see Santas!:)

Jen said...

We are supposed to get snow tonight, I'm slightly excited.

Manzanita said...

Looks lovely and kids always are delighted with snow.
I love cold weather BUT not BiITTER cold. Kinda what we have right now, but next week it's supposed to be not as extreme.

Theresa said...

I hate the snow. Hate it! Ok, I admit, it's pretty, but that's about all it's good for. I'll be sure to redirect any we may receive up to you :)

I'm glad it only dusted like it did here. Just pretty enough! Our boys wanted to go sledding today. It didn't snow very much at all. Not enough to go sledding.

We were in the casino in Cleveland when it started snowing and blowing. Driving home was snowy to say the least.

Such a pretty snow! We haven't had any yet, but this morning it is freezing! The high today is only 35. Brr!

Chatty Crone said...

Oh he sure looks cute out in the snow - the snow doesn't look so good!

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

Its so beautiful to look at but I would hate to drive on it and I don't think I could handle that kind of cold!

ChatterBlossom said...

Wow! Can't believe there is snow already! We've only had a couple of cold days so far, but they'll be here soon!

I'm the same as you! I love the beauty of the snow, but hate driving it in. It was perfect when the kids were little and I didn't have anywhere to go. ;-)

Colette S said...

I'm glad you had a fun Christmas parade. It would be wise to do it early....I guess it makes sense.

I want to see first snow live one day

And you can come take my son. He desires so much to be in the snow!
