These pictures are fabulous! We have about 10 inches on the ground with a big storm predicted this week.

Still waiting for it!

They look positively delighted - you captured such sweet moments!

We got a dusting here this morning in south Chicago area. But it's gone already. It's still to warm to stick here. In the upper 30's.

Thanks for stopping by!

none snow. that's how much we have.

'twas in the 80s today.

SoCal's grand irony: December is more summery than summer (June gloom) usually is.

Enjoy that blizzard. I love the look of pure joy on all their faces. Too much fun!

smiles4u said...

Those faces! Enjoy the snow. I would so love to be having a snow storm right now. I love being snowed in...well, most of the time. Enjoy the best you can! I'm sure those boys will! :) XX

Thankfully, NONE!!!

Being a So Cal girl and having lived in Michigan for 6 years and moved back to So Cal....I miss the snow....especially for Christmas!

Ann said...

when I was in Canada, my apt was next to a primary school, the children loved playing outside.

Merry Christmas

Marilyn said...

Love that quote. My Daughter-in-law emailed that they had 18 inches and it was still coming down. They had stocked up and were ready but hoping the elec. stayed ok. I hope it does with you too. We get virtually no snow. An inch closes the schools and cancels activities. Ha I know that sounds weird. Have a great Christmas.

How much fun are THOSE pics!?!?!?!

I caught my daughter catching snowflakes on her tongue the other day. Too cute. Love that quote today too for Sunday Citar!

We have quite a bit of snow here. The ski hills are in full blown operation and it's quite chilly. I love the different seasons.

Betty said...

I love your pictures. Really shows how children love snow! And what a great quote at the end!

nuts said...

wow, amazing photos you have here!!

Mighty M said...

No snow here, just rain! Hope you don't get snow-bound for too long!!

jen@odbt said...

I think the official snowfall was 20" but at my house, it looks/feels like 2 feet!! We've having fun!

Cristin said...

It is still coming down here ! I think we've got at least 16 inches and drifts are a few feet deep. Can't wait til it stops blowing so the kids can get out and play in it.

Martha in PA said...

Great pictures. I took some with Tara's camera yesterday, I'm afraid to take mine out when it's too cold. (I had a camera die after being in the cold). I'm going to venture out later today, and see what shots I can get around town!

I'm thinking we did not get near 18", more like 8-12" here, but it is PLENTY! Crazy that Philly got 23"!

Mama Kayla said...

We have 8 inches here in Eastern KY. Amazing! Love the pictures!

Christine said...

We are in northern PA and just on the outskirts on the radar map....we catch a break for once!! We've only gotten a few inches the past couple of days and I for one feel thankful:)

Everytime I come to visit your blog...I get a treat. Your photos are like candy to the brain...thank you!

Jen said...

Love it, we had about a foot last night.

Sonya said...

You captured the look and feel of snow:) you are just brilliant. I wish we had that much snow!!! Have a magical snow filled week:)

Bekah said...

priceless! WE've only had about 2 inches so far, but it's still coming down!

Matty said...

Fantastic close-up shots. I especially like the quote at the end. I hadn't seen that before. It has a powerful message.

Thanks.

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

Looks like about a foot and a half here! Kids and snow...they just go together!
<><

gina said...

Well over ten inches and still falling- wahoo!!

Christine said...

WAHOOOO!! YAY for snow. Come on over to see how much we got. Let me know if you think I should post on Sunday Citar or NOT!?!?! Dunno...

LizE said...

I just love the joy on all of their faces. It makes me miss being a kid :-)

American in Norway said...

Beautiful photos as always... now get those babies in some proper snow gear... (its the Norwegian in me coming out! LOL)

Suki said...

Beautiful pictures. Don't you love snow?

SamiJoe said...

Just think of their gorgeous--delighted faces--

WHEN SHOVELLING!


LOL, oh and i have so much more snow! But i'm loving that you'll have some for Christmas! Enjoy!

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

Pictures depict a childs joy over snow...now, if the camera was turned on me I would not have such delight. Why is that? I need to be joyful about that beautiful white stuff but it makes my car and my house dirty and my mood mean...UGHHHH LOVE YOUR SHOTS. We have about 8-10 here right now....Hunker down and call it a day!

Nancy Campbell said...

Man, are those pictures gorgeous. And Kaishon is just such a handsome lad.

We're around two feet here.

Teacher Tom said...

No snow so far and I want it to stay that way. School's out now. I only want snow when there's the prospect of closing school!

Of course, there's a ton in the mountains for the skiers . . .

Great pics!

Busy Bee Suz said...

If it were snowing here, you would have seen it on CNN!!!
Great pictures. :) Suz

Fragrant Liar said...

No snow in Austin, but would love to see some -- more than the sprinkles we had a few weeks ago. If it's going to be cold, I want to see white!

Those pics of the boys are GREAT.

Elizabeth said...

Children are delighted, and I'm jealous. NO snow here in Memphis. Enjoy it! I LOVE the pictures

mum/toddler/babe said...

Gorgeous gorgeous photos!!

Spencer L Casey said...

You definitely have real skills with that camera. Thanks for sharing.

Peterson Family said...

Great pics! Yes, kiddos do love them some snow! (I think it is because they don't have to drive in it!)

Joanna Jenkins said...

What joyful faces-- And I can see the snow start to accumulate just in the time you took the pictures!

No snow in Los Angeles. Phew!

Thanks for sharing your city.

Merry Christmas!

Unknown Mami said...

What a great quote! We should all be more like snowflakes.

Gorgeous faces!

Swapna Raghu Sanand said...

The pics were awesome and delightful, brought a smile to my face.

Sadly, there is snow in Delhi:)

Shelle said...

Wonderful...we got ours very late, and got caught in it...we love sledding too.

sunnymama said...

Lovely pictures! :)

JamericanSpice said...

I love these delightful photos! I have not seen children do this in such a long time!

Tammie Lee said...

wonderful captures of happiness and childhood spirit!

Daphine said...

Great photos! Girl, can you email who did you blog again? I so love it!

Becca said...

sadly, no snow here :-) but it is SERIOUSLY gorgeous outside so i'm totally fine with that!

ps - that's a LOT of snow!

Live.Love.Eat said...

You are doing REALLY well with that camera. Your pictures are very crisp and well, just so clear and wonderful. Great job!!!!

No snow here in FL. But it is about 75.

Liz said...

We got 7" last weekend. All of it is still on the ground at our house. We don't get a lot of sun. It makes things difficult because our driveway is still icy.

Mrs4444 said...

These are terrific! How much did you end up with? We got a few more inches yesterday and have about 6-8 on the ground, leftover from our 14-inch blizzard a week or so ago. I love snow; if it's going to be cold anyway, you might as well have snow, in my opinion :)
