Where's the White?

Snow. Where is the snow? We were suppose to wake up this morning to a blanket of snow. I awoke to hear the wind blowing so strongly against the house. (instant grin) The creaks and howls screamed of whirling snow. I was so excited to start the day off with blueberry pancakes and coffee and be in a winter wonderland. Evan would have fun discovering the cold white snow. He hasn't used his snowsuit yet.

But then I went to window still groggy from a good nights sleep and saw colors. Rubbed my eyes a little more, yep colors. Disappointment swept through me so fast. Where is the white? We didn't get any snow at all! Not even ice or frost. I know the forecast was changed to only get an inch or two, but nothing at all is so disappointing. The wind is still blowing, but it isn't blowing anything white around.

I still made Evan and I blueberry pancakes and am sipping on my second cup of coffee. Evan loves pancakes. He is such a noisy eater anyway, but this morning he was really telling me how much he loved his breakfast. Don't worry Daddy we have left overs for you tomorrow.

Now I must prepare for our White Elephant party tonight. I'm bringing BBQ Wienies and Christmas cookies. I need to search our house for the best gifts, and do a little cleaning while I'm at it.


  1. I hear ya about the snow. It snowed here on Sunday. Only about an inch and it dissapeared about as quickly as it came :(

  2. I'm with you 110%! I despise winter, but I've always said that if it's gonna be cold, it BETTER snow, 'cause at least it's pretty!! And good grief was it cold yesterday - and not a single snowflake to make up for it - sheesh!

    OH, and by the guys win the prize for the coolest white elephant gifts :-) It was fun to be with you 3 :-)
