It Just Doesn't Snow Around Here

This is from two weeks ago, but it has to be in the books, so...  (and if you get this via email, click on the title and it will take you to the blog so you can see the pictures.)

We finally got a snow day, so we hurried outside as soon as we caught a glimpse of the first flurries. 
You see, it just doesn't snow around here, so we didn't want to miss it.
We had to go back out later because you could actually feel the flakes this time.  
We didn't want to miss it, 'cause you know, it just doesn't snow around here.
Later that night, it really did snow.  
 And of course we had to take pictures of
our house,
 our trees,
and our deck to prove that we really got snow.

I mean, look at the difference an hour made in our palm tree.

Daisy wasn't so sure what she thought about having snow here in SC.
 She hasn't played in the snow since we lived in VA, because it just doesn't snow around here.
Sampson was pretty excited,
but Andy was worried about his tummy getting frostbite! 

Annabelle and Lucy weren't interested at all.  They wouldn't even come out to pose for pictures.

While the dogs played, this little guy said his bedtime prayers.
"Dear God, please let the snow still be here in the morning!"

And God answered.




But when this guy said it was time to go, we did.  Cause it just doesn't snow around here. 

The great thing about the snow here is it was GONE by 2 pm! :) 

As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater. 
Isaiah 55:10

Please keep Zeb and his family in your prayers as he undergoes heart surgery Friday.  Also, remember Ruthie!  She's hanging out in the hospital waiting for a new heart.  I know both of these families would REALLY appreciate your prayers

  3. aww....I just love the pics!! Palm tree's and snow just don't sound right in the same sentance!! HA. Most of our 2 1/2 feet of snow melted when it hit 47 degrees the other day, but it's snowing again as I type this!! At least you got to enjoy a little bit of it!! But trust me, when you have it ALL WINTER LONG, you don't like it near as much!!

    Sending BIG heart hugs to you all!!

  4. Love D's little snow shots! He looks as befuddled as Evie was:-)
    Keep meaning to tell you....A mutual friend Allison Shipman. Her husband pastors our church. She sent me an email the day of D's last surgery to tell me about him and ask me to pray....which of course I already was.

    Do YOU know her? I know Justin does. Think he is her pharmacist.

    small world, huh?

  5. I am sooooo jealous! NOT about the snow, but the fact that it was gone by 2:00 the same day! Ha! We have literally been dumped on this winter and I couldn't be more sick of snow!! I love it at Christmastime and then I'm done with it! Ha! Right now there is a snow pile twice as tall as Andrew outside our house! And it seems like every week, we get dumped on again! I am wondering where it's all going to go when it melts!

    It was cute seeing the (rare) pics of D in the snow!

  6. I love the pictures...and you are right..It just doesn't snow around here..Last year it snowed on Zeb's 2nd birthday..I will have to post that pic. I love your dog..too cute!! Zeb's surgery got bumped until Tues (his birthday) I was so distraught, but after prayer and a good long talk with our pastor, I know God has a plan. I appreciate you soo much mentioning him on your blog and for your prayers.

    Love ya

  7. I love it! It looks like so much fun :) We don't get too much snow where we live either and it has been snowing all winter. I think it makes it so special for the kids.

    I am having a CHD giveaway on my blog with 3 days left to enter. I hope you get a chance to enter :)

  8. Oh Shannon, I just LOVE all the snow picture! I am glad everyone (doggies too) got to enjoy the snow, if only for a day!! We have lots here in Wisconsin, even thought it hasn't snowed in awhile.....
