Snowed In

Friday afternoon we headed out of town, we were heading to Jackson so that Shane could run Jet (our dog) in a hunt test. It was suppose to be a nice short trip just to get us out of here and get a change of scenery, well the weather decided to take a change for the worst and the kids and I spent most of Saturday sitting in the car while Shane ran the dog thru her test and watched other dogs. Luckily for my sanity my children were on better than normal behavior and were so well behaved. They did have lots of junk food, Nintendo DS, and tv's to keep them occupied so we were lucky.

They loved staying in the hotel and lucky for us it was a pretty decent hotel considering what was in store for us.

We were set to leave Sat. evening and make the 2 1/2hr drive back home-that is til mother nature decided to have a little fun as in LOTS of snow kinda fun. Our what was suppose to be 30min drive back to where the hotel was took 1 1/2 hrs so we decided to just get a room and stay another night. The kids were super excited about all the snow falling, I was not at all excited about the amount of morons on the road around us and just knew it was only a matter of time before one of them crashed into us. In the maybe 15 mile drive we saw no fewer than 12 cars off the road.

We woke up to a winter wonderland Sunday morning, it was more snow than my kids have ever seen. The hotel had a huge front yard so we took full advantage of it and went out to play. The snow was so deep Abby was having a hard time even walking in it, it was hilarious to watch her try to take a step, then fall, then get stuck. Unfortunately we were not prepared with snow type of clothing so the play only lasted about 30 min. before the fear of frost bite forced us all to go back in.

She loved making snow angels and even got daddy in on it.

We were happy to see that the snow had made it's way to our house although not as much but it was a good snow for us and it had stuck around long enough for us to get home.

Like my little evil kenival on his four wheeler? He has learned the trick of doing donuts and can not get enough of it.

Oh and I also almost forgot to mention and my hubs would be so sad if I forgot to mention how well his little girl Jet did. She passed her hunt test and got another ribbon and is on her way to being even more special.

Girl that was a lot of snow. It sure is pretty but I am so glad we dont get it often. Once a year is good for me. I dont see how people survive when you are snowed in for days.

I'm so jealous that I missed the snow this weekend! It snowed where we were at in GA, but it didn't stick.

WOW! I haven't seen that much snow in a really long time, we didn't get any! It looks like you all had a great time playing in the cold stuff.
