Snow Day Fun

Last week we had an unexpected snow day!

When we woke up on Thursday morning, everything was covered in snow and icicles.

The whole neighborhood was a winter wonderland!

Later that morning we went sledding with the neighbors.

As you can see, Kevin was having a blast.

He was totally nailing this whole sledding thing!

    As a fellow Southern Gal (we are in Birmingham), we had just about the same amount of snow and acted just goofy! Oh the southern life where 2 inches of snow shuts down the state. :)

    i just want to say that i really enjoy ready your page.and seeing your pictures. I am a avid picture taker…i was wondering what camera you use. I am nikon .

    I’m delighted that you and Kevin had such a great time in the snow but… what about the furkids??? Are there no pictures of those two snow bunnies romping in the cold white stuff? C’mon, share!! :)

    Amanda, Didn’t read all the posts but seeing your pictures reminded me of a thing I used to do. California had very snow days but when we did I’d grab a Christmas wreath and hang it out so when Christmas came I’d have a perfect Christmas Card picture.
    Have fun…

    OK, is he using one of your baking sheets to sled? That driveway doesn’t even look like much of a hill!

    PS – If you got about 11ty billion hits on your blog stalking your NYC posts this weekend, it was me, constantly going to back to your blog for food ideas while we were there!

      I know, it’s so sad, isn’t it?? Lol!! :) Our neighborhood is very, very flat. I honestly cannot even think of the nearest hill?! Definitely not one within walking distance… and we couldn’t drive anywhere! Lol! We were totally stranded in 1 inch of snow, lol! :)

      Hope you had a blast in NYC!!! :)

    This brings a smile to my face for a few reasons:
    1) That Kevin had no work due to what looks like 2-3″ of snow (life doesn’t shut down here till maybe 6″ or more)
    2) How happy and excited you were with the snow (we are so sick of it)
    3) Is Kevin sledding…………..on…………..a DRIVEWAY??????!!!!!!! LOL :D
    Anyway, glad you guys had such a nice day and enjoyed the snow! (and the hot chocolate)

    1. Amanda

      Lol, Lois!! :) Ahhh, yes, life in the south. :) To us this is a TON of snow! :) We only get this much *maybe* once every other year… if we’re lucky, lol!! :)

    Well,obviously ya’ll live in the South. Here in Illinois that’s not even considered a “dusting” let alone a reason for a day off! Glad you had fun though!

  8. Layla @ Brunch Time Baker

    What a fun day! I woke up this morning to a surprise snowfall but due to the fact that We live in the city we didn’t have any fun in the snow.

  9. Kelly Jackson

    Ok, you two are having way too much fun! LOL

    I gotta know how you take such beautiful pictures…you are amazing.

    Thanks for the smiles,

  10. Anele @ Success Along the Weigh

    Too funny! If you get any more of them, grab a trash bag. Those babies are so slick that you rocket down the snow faster than any sled. I know, it sounds real hillbilly but it works!

Do you have a question or comment?
