Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Snow in NC

Greg (from Rochester, NY) and I (from Nashville, TN) have very different backgrounds when it comes to winter weather. I really learned a lot about snow on our recent trip to NY- like, for instance, what a snow plow is. Really- I saw a snow blower and said, "Wow, that person owns their own snowplow?" It was one of many times Greg had a good laugh at my expense.

Now it is my turn... it snowed 7 inches at our home this week! Here is a sample of what happens when a Yankee marries someone from the South:

Greg: I think I'll go out and shovel the driveway.
Nicolle: What? How?- We don't own a snow shovel.
Greg: I'll just use the garden shovel.
Nicolle: Why do you want to shovel the driveway?
Greg: So it will be easy to get the car out when I go to work.
Nicolle: Are you going to shovel the whole way to work, because they only (maybe)plow the main roads...
Greg: Oh, good point
Nicolle: We don't shovel snow in the South... we just wait a couple of days for it to melt

Here is what we have been up to while we've been trapped at home.

Finally taking down our Christmas Card photos (sad).

Teething

BFF's playing together

And, of course, lots of sledding, building snowmen, and playing in the snow

And finally baking a successful batch of cinnamon rolls. (I have been trying for years, but could never get them to come out right). Thanks, Jennie, for the dough recipe, and thanks to Greg's Mom for teaching me the thread trick.

Love the pictures of the girls holding hands. Greg must get lots of laughs at our expense.

Haha. We shoveled our driveway this weekend. Do you think our neighbors think we're wierdos?

That pic of the two girls holding hands is ADORABLE! SJ looks like she's grown since last week.

WE do the same thing with our Christmas cards. I always hate taking them down. Your girls look so cute in the matching outfits

Dianne said...

Such adorable little girls! I love them and the photos are great.

I'm totally laughing about the snow removal 'issue' in the south! The whole city shuts down if it snows... schools are cancelled for days, even if roads are clear. :)

THANKS FOR THE CUTE VALENTINE!!! I love it!!!

You guys are the BEST!
