Snow!

Did you know I have actually seen snow? Even though it was already May when we were in the US for a month, we drove between Roseburg and Redmond (Oregon) a couple of times, and that means going through the mountains. It was snowing hard when we drove past Diamond Lake the first time, though Mommy says I might have been asleep then. But I know I was awake going through Santiam pass on the way back, because we had to stop by a snow-encircled lake to change a very poopy stinky diaper of mine. It's even on video!

No chance of seeing snow in Mozambique, but here's a couple of photos from our guest poster to get me dreamin', anyways! It is way tooo hot in this place sometimes... And I really wish I could snowboard - I bet it's a lot like skateboarding or skimboarding. Wishin' you all a white Christmas, or at least a hot chocolaty Christmas!

Good Morrrrrning Mozambique! (and people of the world everywhere!)

My name is Sheila, I'm guest bloggin today. (Everybody raise their glass and say, "Sheila!" ) I'm from Ohio...a long...cold....way off from Mozambique. I have a blog over at http://www.maviefolle.com/ should you ever want to visit. I write like I talk, so you'll see many punctuation errors & gramatical errors....but, like they say....that's how I roll.

So. We've had only a few inches of snow this season, so far (about 10 in total)....and my kids are all desperately hoping that this is going to be very snowy like the forecasters are predicting. (Yes, I have weird kids, they actually like the snow. Not shoveling it mind you...just playing in it and watching the tv for a notice that their school is closed because of it)

Here's a little taste of the snow we had last year.


This was in March of 08. I believe when this storm was finally over we had about 26 inches. (falling at a rate of 2 inches an hour)

We were running out of places to shovel it from out of the driveway! So the kids decided to pile it up on the front lawn and build their own little snowboarding ramp because the roads were to hazardous to travel to the actual ski resort.


Lots of hot chocolate, lots of fun and best of all, no broken bones! Happy Winter everyone!

(oh, btw, I see I spelled 'gramatical' wrong, above. lol.

Well, my husband and son will be having their first white Christmas this year, along with some hot chocolate. Even though I've had a few before, I'm just as excited. We've had snow for almost a week now, and it just keeps on coming, though not as fast as Sheila's snow!

Merry Christmas to you!

Yay! Snow! I LOVE everything about snow! I'm actually on my way to go skiing this morning - I better stop playing around on the internet and get going! :)

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Esme! Drink lots of hot chocolate - ask your mom for marshmallows, too!
