My Snow Angels


I woke up this morning to the kids shouting..."SCHOOLS CANCELED SCHOOLS CANCELED!"

I really like it when they're home, but I'm never coat/mitten/hat/shoe ready for this day. It's not like we get snow all the time here in our area, so I normally don't have a supply of waterproof stuff for them! I let them out this morning at 8:30....they stayed out for about a hour....and now all the stuff is in the dryer. They are waiting on pins and needles to go out again since the snow won't quit falling and snow is growing by the minute! I swear these chunks (snow flakes) are huge! My neighbor Tara (go check her out on her blog...she's a newbie so share the love) and I were standing out there laughing at the snow...it looks fake like someone is pouring it from the sky! ha ha

Here are some photos of the kids and view from the house...

And just wanted to let everyone know ....when it was dinner/dessert time I was feeling grand! I had a slice of the chocolate cake (maybe 2)

Well, I think it's very similiar to your marble cake, but I dontl have my mom's recipe here at work, and found this one http://cookeatshare.com/recipes/chocolate-texas-cowboy-sheet-cake-118319.

But, not sure if it's the same as my mom's. I think this one is chocolate, but i like the white cake with nuts better than chocolate (i think) but chocolate is good too.

They call it cowboy cake (probably bc the recipe came from Texas or somewhere around there). I used to ask my mom to make it all the time. It's yumm!! Probably like yours!

Umm...is that your home??!! You have a beautiful home!! Wow!

May I just say, your family is beautiful!! I love BIG families. I just love them. You're kind of like MckMama (I just adore people that have big broods of family, and don't appear to be slowing down). I just love when peopel embrace life and New Life.

Looks liek everyone had tons of fun. What degrees is it there? Just curious.

We call Nikolina, "Mini." My hubby started it right after she was born. We are convinced she will thinkt hat her name is "Mini" when she finally figures it out. Ha!
