I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...

When we got just a "dusting" of snow the other day, my boys were so excited they ran all through the house cheering for the snow...















Connor couldn't WAIT to go out side and check it out...



















I personally love seeing the snow - just not shoveling it or driving in a storm of it.
What's your thoughts...

I like snow! I don't really miss it though! 17 years of snow in November that last until March and sometimes April will really do it in for you! That was enough!! I do enjoy going back to Iowa for Christmas and seeing it then, but I am sure glad to leave it!! :) It is pretty though!

I love, love, love snow. The only thing I don't like about it is it can make a mess of things inside the house, and outside of my vehicles. I love playing in it, snowmobiling in it and especially DRIVING in it. I even proposed to Sheena on top of it. :)

I can hardly wait for Jeremiah to get to experience it (not in AR, but in MN!)

Seriously though, I love driving in it so much, that when I still lived in MN, anytime it began to snow I would get excited so I could go drive in it, and use my e-brake going around corners. That is the best! It never gets old.

I also have lots of good memories playing in the snow when we had go-carts as kids. It was so much fun.

Let it snow! LOTS!

One more thought....

if it's going to be cold in the winter, there might as well be snow. Otherwise it just feels like a miserable cold season and no white stuff to show that it's winter.

We only see snow maybe a couple times a year down here. :(

If you think about all of the fun things you can do with snow, it makes it fun knowing there is snow on the way!

I like making snow ice cream and building snowmen and I loved it when the kids built snow forts. Those were cool. But I didn't like driving in it and I don't miss it except for once in a while around Christmas.

My perfect snow would be Christmas Eve, about 6 inches of big fluffy flakes so when you get up on Christmas morning it is clear and cold with snow sitting on the branches of the evergreen trees. You start a fire in the fireplace, sip your coffee and enjoy the day with family. By the next day it is all melted and it doesn't snow again until the next Christmas Eve.

OH HOW I MISS SNOW! Only around the holidays though. I do miss the snow forts, sledding, snowman building, and all the fun stuff you can do!
But, I do like Christmas shopping without all the sludge, salt and sand! You don't have to wash your vehicles as much. And I agree with Jake your house isn't as much to clean up!
