Snips And Snails

Ask And You Shall Receive

Monday night we got a dusting of snow which was all but gone by Tuesday morning.  I lamented that it sure would be nice to get at least enough to make a snowman or a snow angel.  Ask and you shall receive indeed.  Thursday afternoon big fat fluffy flakes were falling like feathers from the heavens.

The exuberance at the House of Antique has been off the charts today. 

This funny little face caused my heart to burst right out of my chest today.  And then he picked it up out of the snow and put it in his pocket.

  1. Trying to look at snow from my daughter’s viewpoint helps me get through a New England winter!

    That boy of yours has got one awesome smile.

  2. What a lot of snow for Texas!!!!

    What I would like about it is that you know it’s going to melt soon. And not stick around for the next four months!!!!

  3. What a cutie! I’m so glad that you got enough snow for Sean to enjoy. I would gladly have shared some of ours this winter! We had snow again last night and I’m hoping it will be the last of it until next winter. C’mon, Spring!!

  4. You are welcome here anytime to partake of our record-breaking 52 inches of snow so far this year. Yeah uh huh. Hot sticky and humid sounds delicious to me.

  5. Had I known that a little snow would put such a beautiful smile on that little guys face, I would have sent some your way a long time ago!

  6. I am soooo jealous.

    Not of your snow, but your lack of. Here in Iowa we’ve gotten over 60 inches so far this winter. I say SO FAR because we are forecasted to get even more.

    I would move, but then I’d have to change the title of my blog and I just don’t have time to do all that.


  7. I love his smile. That is what being a kid is all about!

    (It’s snowing here right now. I just want it to be Spring. Sigh. Perhaps you should send Sean up here so that I can see the joy of cold weather now.)

  8. I wish I was at the age where snow was still fun and not an annoyance! It’s hard to make snow angels in NYC.

    I’m glad Sean is having a great time in his snow!

  9. And you live where?? LOL! What beautiful pictures of a beautiful little boy! Put a smile on my face this morning!

  10. For me who has no blog (I hope you do not mind a reader without a blog) and no small children (my son is 25 and will be 26 in May), I just love reading your blog. You either have me laughing like crazy or crying!

  11. What a great memory he’ll have! I’ve always remembered when we got a spattering of snow in the Los Angeles area when I was a kid. It didn’t hit the ground, but the top of our tall pine tree in the front yard had white flakes on the very top!

  12. Lucky boy! We live in D/FW too but we only got a tiny bit and it has already melted. My daughter was excited to touch the chunk of ice that fell off her dad’s truck. She didn’t know what she was missing!

  13. When I heard on the news you all were getting snow I thought of you and hoped there would be enough for a snow man! Yahoo! These pictures are precious!

  14. As always, your son is just precious. I sure wish I loved the snow as much as he does, but unfortunately, I don’t. I supposes it might be different if snow was such a rarity as it is in your area. We are in the middle of a winter storm warning all day today, tonight and tomorrow-expecting around 14 inches by the time it is finished. That’s Ohio for you!!

  15. Even though both boys see snow EVERY year…they still get that look of pure joy for the first snow of the season. Just like that wonderful smile on Sean’s face!

  16. I forgot to mention that on Monday of this week we had temperatures in the 60’s and it felt like spring. By the very nexy day, Tuesday, we had freezing rain and the trees and everything were coated in ice. Thursday the temps rose into the 40s’ and all the ice melted, but today (Friday) we are getting all this snow dumped on us….changeable weather is typical in Ohio….

  17. My cousin’s wife grew up in GA. and used to think snow was a fairytale/myth. When she came out west for the first time, we took her up to the Mt. so she could see that snow really existed. Glad Sean had this opportunity to “believe”.

  18. He is beautiful and looks so much like you. Every new thing brings out a twinkle in his eyes and clutches at your heart. With him around … you will never need CPR… he will do it with a few of his smiles.

  19. We’re getting some of that same stuff right this minute — our first snow fall of the year! And Lord willing, our last. 😉 Glad you and Sean had such fun together!

    Drop by the party at my place if you get a chance. 🙂

  20. For sweet! After watching the Hotel Boat video, I can just hear his adorable little voice exclaiming over and over, just waiting to be helped into his snow clothes.

  21. Dear Antique Mommy:

    I’m glad you had a fun snowfall. Sean looks like he’s having a blast.

    I’m commenting, however to let you know how much I enjoy reading your blog. In fact you are one of the three bloggers whose blogs inspired me to start my own. Thank you for sharing your journal! It touches many lives, mine included.


  22. What is it like to have a child that looks so much like you? I have two and except for their skin tone, you would never even know we are related.

    Looks like so much fun. My daughter is dying for snow.
