Yesterday we got to take Braden out in the snow to play. Braden tried to make snowballs, catch snowflakes on his tongue and he loved sliding down his slide into the snow. He kept talking about making snow angels. I don't know where he learned about that from, but I didn't really fancy the idea of him laying in the snow! We had so much fun, but it was SO cold. We got almost 6 inches of snow! After about 30 minutes we headed inside because Braden's hand were freezing. I was not prepared for snow this year!
When we got inside I made hot cocoa for Brad and Braden and then I started working on dinner. And then the power went out. Not a big deal if your home is heated by gas, which ours isn't. Not a big deal if you own a flashlight with working batteries, which we don't. Not a big deal if you weren't starting to freak out about your 2 year old freezing to death in the middle of the night, which I was. (I know, I'm a little dramatic). We decided that we would head to my parents house, but Brad wanted to check the roads. Well he couldn't even back the truck out of the driveway because of all the rain that we had gotten for 2 day and the snow mixture was freezing in the driveway and his back 2 tires on his truck were a little worn. My parents offered to come pick us up, but I didn't want them on the roads (my dad is crazy about snow....he loves it and they left the house to drive around anyway). After talking to my brother and my parents, they said it wasn't as bad in Conyers, we decided to pack up my car and give it a try. The roads were bad around our house and HWY 11, but they got better by the time made it out of Covington. We did see LOTS of wreckers and several cars in the ditch. We headed home early this morning so that Brad could get to work and I-20 was shut down right before our exit. The roads were a little icy. I'm glad we didn't stay home in the dark last night.
I got Braden bundled up when we got home and we headed out to play in the snow again. It was starting to melt off the house, but the snow was really hard and not as fun to play in as it was yesterday. I'm really glad that he got to enjoy the snow and maybe when it snows in another 5 years he can make his snow angels!
