How to Enjoy South Carolina Snow!

Last Friday (1/25) it snowed here in South Carolina. (The second time in one week!!) And this time the kids were awake and got to enjoy some fun in the snow.
Now, snow is a unusual occurence in South Carolina, so if you ever see some rare South Carolina snow employ the following tips:
* Stare in wonder at the snow. Especially if you, like S, don't recall ever seeing it!
*Play with toys left in the yard. These toys will have a slight dusting of snow. Try to push that snow into a small "snow nugget". Marvel at the melting "snow nugget".
*Stick out your tongue in hopes of a huge flake landing right on your tongue. (Technique is important here. If you really want a flake to land on your tongue you are going to have to bend your head back.)
*Try catching some in your hot little hands. Well, at least pose for a picture trying to catch a few flakes.
*Zipped coats are optional. Any true "snow gear" really not neccesary. Afterall, by the time you find even the mittens the snow will be gone!
*Return from the now wet and rainy backyard to put on warm pajamas and sip hot cocoa.
*And, of course, extra whipped cream is always a good thing.

It is so not fair!! My kids would love to see some snow....not just a little tiny bit, like we had last Friday for about 30 seconds. So....I am sending them to you for a day or two, okay? *wink* I gave you an award over on my blog :-)
