White Winter Wonderland

About a week ago the weather forecasters were calling for a blizzard. Warnings were issued, schools let out early, and some people went so far as to go to the grocery store and stock up for the storm.

We watched and listened to the wind blow, waiting for the snow to come and bury us as predicted. We waited...  and waited..... and got nothing. Salt Lake was getting pounded and we assumed we were next. So we went to bed, anticipating the white that would await us in the morning.

Imagine how disappointed my boys were to find absolutely no snow in the morning! Jonah was devastated because he wanted to shovel the driveway with Honey Daddy.

Fast forward a week. On Sunday morning when we woke up, Honey Daddy informed me that we got tons of snow overnight! We got about 8 inches! I guess you could say our blizzard was a little behind schedule.

So even though it was Sunday, I let the boys get in their snow clothes and go out for a little while before church. They were SO excited for the first real snow!

As you can see, they got out their sand box toys and were digging and driving their tractors around in the snow. What a pair of sillies!

They had a wonderful time outside. I am not really that fond of snow, but seeing my two boys enjoy it so much makes it a bit more fun for me.

I guess you could say my boys have brought a little bit of the "wonder" back into winter wonderland for their mommy.
