Snow Weekend!!! It actually stuck!!

I wish I could have gotten pictures, up sooner, but I am just now able to get the pictures uploaded. I came in last week on Friday from Austin and had heard there was snow, but figured it had melted by the time I got home. That is usually what happens, so I did not think it would still be there. Whenever I got home, this is what I discovered....
 
 I could not even get my car up my driveway because it was so wet and slick. I had to pack my car on the road infront of my house!!! I was so happy to see actually snow. It was not just ice, but snow!!!! 
 
I took Milly out in the snow and she did not know what it was. She did not like the snow at all. She walked around a little bit and then ran back inside. 

Since I had never seen snow before, I decided I wanted to do everything that I had not been able to do. I made my first snowman ever. I was so excited about this!!! His name was Farmer Brian, since Brian was not there yet. haha 


I told Brian about everything with the snow and how I wanted to have a snowball fight and he said that he was going to kill my snowman whenever I got home. As soon as he got home, he knocked on the window for me to come look, and he took running start and flew through my snowman. I was so mad. I was on the phone with my sister-in-law and I started screaming on the phone. I was so mad and laughing at the same time.
Anyways, this is what I was able to recreate of my first snowman......
 
Milly was freezing cold and did not enjoy being out in the freezing cold. As you can see, this snowman does not look near as good as my first one. It does not even have a face this time. haha 

This is what I woke up to the next morning. It was so peaceful and beautiful. Do not get me wrong, I was so ready for the snow to be gone though.
 
We took Milly out to the bathroom and she walked as close to the house as she could so that she would not have to touch the snow. I felt so bad for her, but Brian and I could not help but to laugh! 

 
This is what our driveway looked like after Brian drove my car up the driveway. My side is the swerved side and Brian's side is the straight side. He was able to get up the driveway the first time. It took Brian around 15-20 minutes to get up my driveway. 

We were trying to figure out creative ways to shovle the snow in our yard. Well needless to way, what we tried did not work. haha
It was an awesome Valentines weekend and I am so glad I got to share it with the man that I love!!!

It was funny that you were on the phone with me Karen. I was cracking up after I got off the phone, because of you and Jason saying stuff. haha
