Saturday was Snow Fun!

It actually happened. The forecasters called for snow, and it actually snowed!
I was up all night Friday night in anticipation, and on Saturday, there was nothing. I was disappointed, to say the least. Then, the forecasters said Birmingham may be skipped. I was so upset! However, 30 minutes later...snow!
Of course, the first thing I wanted to do once we got outside was start taking pictures. Tristan had other plans.As you can see, he wasted no time in getting the snowballs going!Here is a quick shot of Tristan and me. If you look in Tristan's hand, you'll see the beginnings of a snowball.
This picture is blurry, but I love it. You can see the excitement in Tristan's face.Then we moved on to the backyard where I built a (pitiful looking) little snowman family. Hey, I'm from Alabama. The thought of building a large snowman didn't even cross my mind until an hour later when I saw neighbors building big ones. My poor tiny snow family didn't even have arms or facial features!This is something Tristan has been dying to do...make snow angels. He was so excited that he finally had the chance. It was messy and wet, but we couldn't let the opportunity pass.

I love love love this shot. What a great fun day!!!
After we had all the snow fun we could have (and our poor fingers could take), we headed inside to make a breakfast lunch (you know, pancakes, grits, and eggs for lunch). Tristan helped. He was my egg cracker.That was our snow fun day! Hopefully we'll get another soon.

Wasn't it so much fun?! I wish it snowed more often in Alabama! If it did, I'm sure we wouldn't enjoy it as much though =) Love the pictures!!

It was so much fun, wasn't it? I am glad our boys were able to experience it. I love the picture of you and Tristan.

Love the pictures. Wish we were still across the street to join in playing. We did have some fun with the dogs in the snow though. Allie loved it but Jr saw the camera and his day was ruined. Oh well.

So fun!! We had a blast too!! We were glad we had one mini snowman. Our snow quickly became snow balls for throwing. :)

By the way - save your picture in my pictures. Right click the picture, select rotate clockwise and THEN use it in your blog, etc.
