    We are finally going to get some snow here in Richmond :yesss

    My kids have never had a snow day and have only seen snow once (over Thanksgiving in Pittsburgh) so if everyone could keep their fingers crossed for it to stick around long enough to make a snowman, I have 4 little Carothers over here who would really appreciate it :thumbsups

    Sounds like they will have fun.

    We've had a ton of snow this year, and up until a few days ago, the piles were about 5 ft tall on either side of the driveway. Perfect for making snow forts! Sigh. I do love winter!

    Oh they will love that adventure Kelly! My kids don't remember snow from when we lived in Idaho. They always beg to visit grandma (lives in Utah) during the winter so they can experience snow, but no such luck yet. Hopefully you guys will have enough for a snowman!

    I'm crossing my crossables for your kiddos, Kelly! I know mine would love some snow as well, they haven't even been able to make a snowman yet this year.

    I'd be more than happy to ship you some of ours. It snowed here the day before Christmas and hasn't gone away completely yet. We usually have a thaw (about now) followed by more snow in February. I'm over it. Please please please Spring get to Michigan and stay here!!

    Tell your kids to wear their jammies inside out and to sleep with a spoon under their pillow. I think there's some kind of snow dance they should do too. I'll have to ask my kids about that one. :p

    Happy to say that it's coming down nicely (and sticking)! They have already been out once and had a snowball fight hopefully we get a few inches tonight. I remember waking up to snow when I was a kid...it was so awesome. No school...everything was covered in white and so beautiful. So happy they get a little bit of that, we had one season in FL-they never got to experience that ebb and flow of fall into winter, winter into spring, etc....

    Thanks for all the good juju you guys :)

    That's going to be so fun! We're also having snow here this week and tonight we're supposed to get a lot of it! I hope so! I promised the girls to go out and play in the snow tomorrow! :)
