Snow Day!

We had a decent snow fall this week in the south, so we got pretty excited about it. Here are some photos of our fun. We didn't get out till almost dark because "Mr. Grumpy Pants" had his own agenda that day so the photos are a bit dark. We'll have to try for more during the day.

What better way to spend a snowy afternoon than helping mommy make brownies?


Helping Daddy shovel the driveway. So much snow for us southern folk! Nothing like I used to get as a kid in Upstate New York, but certainly a good bit since I've lived in Kentucky!

Helping to shovel with the garden spade. Yes, I know my child has no mittens on. He HATED his mittens because he couldn't figure out how to get his thumbs in the right spot so he basically lost the use of his hands with the mittens on. He was furious with them, so they had to come off.

Just standing in the snow, checking it out, and watching even more fall. Taking in the wonder of it all.

A friend of mine posted on her facebook that she was reminded by the the pure, bright whiteness of the snow that this is how clean Jesus washed us. We are free from sin and washed without blemish. I don't think I'll ever look at snow the same way again.

"...though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson..." ~Isaiah 1:18
