What do a bunch of Florida transplants do when there’s snow on the ground? Go sledding, of course! It was the first time for all of us but I can assure you that it won’t be the last time.


Happy (snowy) New Year!

Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year’s. We were all recovering from a cold last night so it was an early night for us. Grab a warm drink and let me tell you what’s been happening here the last week.

We’ve gotten snow and lots of it!

It started Christmas Eve. Just like a movie, it started on our way to the Christmas Eve service at church. This is what it looked like when we got back:

We got a break on Christmas day but it started up again the day after Christmas. It was amazing (says the Floridiots)!

There’s a rumor that I may or may not know how to make a snow angel. Ah’em…The following photo is for my Florida friends’ benefit. I’m sure you northerners are all too familiar with images like these:Jackson is still shirtless most days. And if he’s not watching the snow from inside…then he’s outside playing in it.The two of us built our very first snowman of the year. Ethan was under the weather so he decided to skip the very cold activity.

We’ve been pretty busy these days. Here’s what we were up to today:


Dusting…but not the housecleaning kind

We had a little snow the other day. Not much to stick around; just a dusting. Jackson actually got ready for school early so that he could play outside. Early, folks. That’s something that never happens. Ever. 

There’s a park right down the street from us. I braved the winds to see how this little bit of snow changed the view: We’re hoping to get some more for Christmas but I think that’s just wishful thinking. Who knows, maybe Santa will be nice to us this year. How’s the weather in your backyard?
