Snow in Georgia and a visit from friends

Friday afternoon the snow starting coming down around 1:30 and didn't stop until Friday night around 10. I had to work that day, and even though I kept hoping they would send us home early, it was still a lot of fun to be with my other "kids" at school as the much anticipated snow came into town. The entire 3rd grade took the kids outside to play in the snow and we had so much fun!

I was so excited to get home to take Caleb out into the snow. It snowed last year (he was 5 months old), but he was too young to really play or stay out long. So we got home, bundled him up and out the door we went. It did not go over well. Caleb SCREAMED. LOUDLY. Much like you would expect someone to scream if say, their legs were being cut off. Don't let the slight smile in the first picture fool you -- he was not a happy camper.

Needless to say, we didn't spend a lot of time in the snow this weekend. But that was OK because our friends, Brian and Erika and their son, Matthew, from North Carolina came to visit. I was "that southerner" on their way down Friday afternoon (calling every 15 minutes, telling them to get a hotel room, etc.), but they made it safely to our house Friday evening. The boys had a great time playing together and making memories (OK - they are more memories for the adults, but who cares!).

Our babies who love to hang out in their diapers. (This was the best we could do!)

In the wagon, in the snow. This was the ONLY way Caleb would go out Saturday.

In the bath - they will love this when they get older. :)

It was so much fun to watch the boys play together (they are 8 months apart)! Caleb would never say "Matthew," but he did say "baby" all weekend! There will be many more fun times to come - they are moving back to Atlanta in June!!!! YAHOO!
