Thoughtfulness Thursday: Snow Day!

We've had a lot of fun over the past couple of days with the snow. I left work around 1:30 on Tuesday and it really wasn't coming down much and then when E woke up from his nap, we had a nice blanket! Yesterday, I think we went outside five different times. We played, froze, came in and thawed out. This is E's first super fun! The February before he was born, we had a lot of snow, but the most he's seen was at Snow Mountain (fake snow) when he was 1. I love living in the South during these times. Everything closes down, people run to the store and neighborhood kids run around outside! I'm so grateful that most of the mess in Atlanta has cleared. I had friends that were stranded at work, day cares and a pregnant friend who walked home. That said, there were so many Good Samaritans feeding people, letting them in their homes and helping them get off the roads. It just proves that even in a big city, there is Southern hospitality. 

 This is how E reacted when we got home and he realized it was snowing!
And then he was sad because the snowflakes wouldn't stay in his net.
During naptime, it finally started sticking!
I felt like Lilly Pulitzer was snow appropriate (details about the necklace on the blog soon!).
What a difference two hours makes!
He threw a million snowballs at me (luckily he has bad aim).
He thought the slide in snow was way fun!
We finished the day with snowcream and wine in front of the fire.
The next day, we woke up and did it again...
Pretend snow naps :)
Snow selfies!
Tractors in the snow!
And of course every house looks beautiful in the snow!

I hope you've had fun in the snow! I'm back to work for a half day (bummer) but am at least done until Tuesday after today! I've enjoyed seeing y'all's snow pics!!
