It is probably no secret that I love snow and wholeheartedly believe it does not snow enough in St. Louis. I may or may not be secretly jealous of the giant snow storm hitting New England this weekend.   I am also pretty sure I have not seen measurable amounts of snow in St. Louis in about 2 years (since the snowmageddon that wasn't)  so last weekend when we came home to beautiful snow falling from the sky I couldn't help but spend a little time enjoying it even if it was almost midnight!  Nick even indulged me and played in the snow and helped me build my very first snowman (don't ask I have no idea how someone who loves snow so much managed to make it 28 years without ever performing such a regular snow activity).  So for my dear friends surviving the storm this weekend do a little of this for me:

Yes I am skipping in the snow!

and then I made a snow angel
building a snowman
Me and our fabulous snow man

I also realized the next morning that we don't have any pictures of our house with snow because we didn't get any accumulated snow last year so I ran outside before it all melted and took this pictures.  Unfortunately our snowman was not the best constructed little guy and he took a topple overnight.

And this is all that was left of the snow when I got home from work Monday.  

poor mr. snowman

I am still holding out hope for an awesome winter storm, but I know better than to get too hopeful in this town cause it just isn't likely.

  1. I hear ya, Mar! I'm seriously craving a serious snow storm, but it's just doesn't seem to be in the cards for DC either this year :(

    ps: your house looks lovely in the snow!
