Wednesday, January 16, 2008 – Maggie experiences snow for the first time in her memory! We got out of the car a little after four, and there were snow flurries. I pointed them out to Maggie and she was ecstatic. After watching them swirl for a little bit, we went inside to wait and see what would happen. It started to pick up just before five so we went outside to see what we could get on camera. Mags was dancing all around the yard and posing for the camera!

Daddy got home around five just as some real flakes were starting to come down. We took some video and pictures in our yard and then heard the sound of other children screaming “It’s really snowing!” Needless to say we had to go find them!

We found the neighborhood friends in the back of Julie and JJ’s house running around screaming and having just a general good time. They played hide-and-seek and tried to catch snowflakes on their tongues. It was so much fun to watch. I commented that we had “Yankee Snow” falling – the flakes were huge and it was actually sticking! Georgia usually gets just ice.

After about 45 minutes, Maggie’s cheeks were turning just a tad too red, so we headed in for dinner. The snow continued to fall. Daddy went outside and gathered snow and brought a snowball into Maggie for her to taste it.

During the night, the snow turned to rain, but there was still some snow left the next morning. School was canceled so as soon as it was light and not raining, Maggie and I were out for her to play in it some. She was so excited even though most of the good stuff was gone. She fulfilled a lifelong dream by making snowballs and throwing them at Mommy!

Below are pictures we took – enjoy the slide show!
