Let It Snow- Let It Snow- Let It Snow- Let It Snow- INSIDE

What do you do when the weather is 
too cold and miserable to go outside?
Well, at OUR house we bring
the snow INSIDE.
Yes. We. Do.
Two weeks ago today this was one sick
little boy.
Today he is sitting here and preparing to 
play with snow for the first time.
He's not quite sure he wants to touch it.
Tentatively he reaches out.  
What is this cold white stuff?
Oh- Yeah, Baby- This is COLD!
Look- He has a helper-his cousin, Ria.
He DOES NOT like the snow sticking to him.
This little boy eats ANYTHING but he is 
offering Daddy the first bite.
Ria had so much fun watching him play.
She is such a good girl and she loves to 
hang out at Nana's house.
She is our only little girl with "smiley eyes"
She is always smiling.
Do you know what makes ME smile?
The idiots people in this family that
 snowmobile no matter 
how cold and miserable it is.
Does it look COLD out there?
Do you think I want to freeze to play in the snow?
No. I. Don't.
That is why I bring the snow inside!

Looking to warm up now are you?
How about this?
It makes me so cold I could cry.
It's called a 
TEAR JERKER SNOW CONE.
You can get yours here!

Have a great day. 
I am out of town on business all day but
I will check in when I get home.
Behave yourselves.
The Elves are watching!
You might see what MY elf
is up to tomorrow.
You won't believe it!

That looks like the best way to enjoy snow!

Musings from Kim K. said...

How wonderful to see your grandson looking so healthy. Your granddaughter is just beautiful. It's 6 degrees outside this morning in West MI. Both girls were hoping for a snow day. As much as I love winter sports, especially ice skating, there are certain temps, I just don't do. Happy Monday!

Smiling eyes are the best beauty feature a girl can have! I'm with you, I'll stay inside and keep warm.

Japolina said...

First of all, I'm so happy that that baby is doing great!> Next, Ria is really pretty.

Last but not least…That snow scares me. Please be careful!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Oh no, is your Elf harassing your Hero again, Diana! : ) Yeah, that is too cold for me, too. Although a snowmobile is probably the way to go in getting around at this time of year. We are getting more snow as I type this. I am thrilled beyond words. Not.

*giggles*

You really expect me to behave when Shanley Belle just came home from college *and* we're going SHOPPING today???? ;P

Okay so I'll try just for you!

Here in the South, birds spy for Santa. Yes, they do!

Wow, look at all that snow….do you grocery shop on a snowmobile?

LOVE seeing your little dude doing so well…you are blessed, m'dear!

xo,
RJ

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Linda said...

It is soooooo wonderful to see your grandson playing with the snow and your granddaughter helping him. :-) You just crack me up!!!!! have a good day....I'm off to check my list and see what I can check off today!

Perfectly Printed said...

What a great way to enjoy to enjoy the snow! No need to bundle up! A play day on the comfort of your own home!!

Cristina Garay said...

That snowmobile looks like lots of fun, but these days I also prefer to bring the snow inside ;) Love their happy faces :)

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

I bet I know who is on the snowmobile .....
I'm with you baby its cold outside.
The sweet little boy looks so good and I am so HAPPY that he is on the road to recovery. Your granddaughter is so pretty - all of your grands are good looking.
Be careful in the snow.
Have a Very Merry Christmas.
Mary

Take care, friend, and thanks for popping in to see me.

Shelia ;)

Shirley said...

Good Morning Diana, I had to pop in before I go to my one day a week job. It is such a joy to see your little one looking so much better. Did daddy take a bite if snow and was it him on the snowmobile? We have thick fog this morning. Rea is so pretty. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Chatty Crone said...

All that snow makes me cry too! lol I don't like the snow very much either.

Having a snow mobile in the snow is fantastic.

And how sweet to bring the snow inside for your grandson!

Betsy@ coastal-colors said...

Priceless bringing the snow inside! Ria does have smiling eyes! She is growing up so fast! I can't believe she has gotten so tall! It's great to see that precious baby well and playing with snow now! Oh, I would be one of the people on the snow mobile; I love cold weather!

sparkle100-havealook.blogspot.com said...

Oh baby Grandson is feeling good. Wonderful and alot of prayers went his way.

Brrrr snow inside.

Oh yes Rita is a honey bun.


Be safe.

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home said...

Only you would think of bringing the snow INSIDE! How clever! Enjoy your day out...hugs, Penny

Patty Patterson said...

I prefer staying warm, too - but I do get out. Those kids have to have a little help making snowmen. But we don't get much snow, here, so it's no big deal.
And I've been gone for a few days, so I'm behind on reading blogs. I'll be checking back to see what I've missed.

Tessa~ said...

What an all-round PRECIOUS post!

Precious... Precious... Precious...

So happy the little one is better. So happy you all get to spend time with your darling "smiley eyes" Ria.

And I agree, can't imagine the "thrill" of snowmobiling in that weather. Can't understand the "thrill" of skiing either, though. Just go up a hill and down a hill, in the cold. Wha........???? -grin-

Attic Clutter said...

oh he is sooooo darling
hope you are having a merry fun time this
season (:)
hugs,,patty

Ron said...

Yep, only YOU would bring the snow indoors. That is such a brillant idea though. Kudos!!!

Susie said...

Diana, Your CJK is such an adorable little guy. Ria will be a good baby sitter. It does my heart good to see older children help with the little ones. I have never imagined that splitting cold air with my body would be fun. So ,no, I do not like playing on snowmobiles. Be careful out there. Xoxox,Susie

Charm Bracelet Diva {at Home} said...

Great to see him so happy:) I remember having friends while growing up in northeastern PA who had lived in Louisiana all their lives and actually stayed home from school the first time they saw snow (it didn't even accumulate but they were just so darn happy!)

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

So happy he is feeling better, he looks so cute!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

So nice seeing CJ enjoying the snow. Even if on a cookie tray! Me too, give me a warm blanket, coffee and a fire...my way of enjoying cold days and snow days!
Blessings,
Cindy

camp and cottage living said...

CJ is looking healthy and happy again!
I can't even imagine what YOUR elf will be up to tomorrow, Diana.
But I'll drop by to find out!

Beth said...

It is such a treat to see the little guy looking healthy and happy! God is good!

tammy j said...

ria is simply beautiful.
and yes. she smiles through her eyes . . . the best kind of smile!
and the baby and the inside snow...
brought a tearing of joy to my eyes. he's been through so much.
what a sweetheart he is. xoxo

Simply LKJ said...

Warms my heart to see him smiling and playing! Even if it is with cold snow! In Texas. Driving home with baby girl tomorrow.

Sylvia said...

It sure is good to see your little one enjoying himself after he was sick. Yes, it does look COLD out there and I'm with you..."inside drinking hot Chocolate"
will be looking for Elf

ImSoVintage Laura Walker said...

So happy to see him so well now. No, I would not want to be out in that weather. xo Laura

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

I am a cold nature person...so looking at your pictures I am already getting chills. Time for a hot cocoa with whipped cream for me

Pam Kessler said...

It's official - your family is nuts if they're out there on snowmobiles. You have the right idea to stay inside!

Nellie said...

That is the best way to enjoy the snow! No need to bundle up! It is really good to see that little one feeling better! xo Nellie

Gayla said...

Well, that's a wonderful snow experience for our little Sweetie! It's looking beautiful outside, too. If I felt well, I'd be on that snowmobile, too!

Gina said...

Why didn't I ever think of that? Bring the snow inside when it's too cold to play outside! You've always got all the ideas. lol

Jettie said...

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow, but only up north, we don't want any more of it, down south.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

LOL this is just too cute..bringing it in for him

And once again I just feel "Praise God" and the power of prayer.

Blessed! You are blessed and we are blessed to enjoy it / marvel at it with you :)

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

That's a fun idea to bring some snow inside for little ones! My girls all went out to play today - I won't miss this snow when it goes and I won't miss all the outdoor clothes piled by the door!

Missy George said...

Did you let that elf loose in your house while you were gone..No telling what you'll find when you get home..Cute post...It's in the teens here ..More snow tonight..

sweetvintageofmine said...

So good to see the little one doing so well! Thank you, Lord for answered prayers.......yes, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....we have plenty too! Blessings~~~Roxie

lynn said...

Donna said...

It warms my heart to see pictures of your little grandson, Diana! So glad he is doing well. Lots of snow and cold here too, brr!!

Leena Milligan Lanteigne said...

Look at that sweet little guy checking out that snow! He looks like he was never even sick. I do pray for him every night that he stays well and thank God for helping him. hey, I think I'd be one of those idiots too, with enough layers of clothing on! I'd love to snow mobile! So, what's the elf up to now, mooning us? LOL! Hugs, Leena

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

I am so happy your sweetie is feeling better - you all must be so relieved.

Your pretty granddaughter is precious - and at the age where they can be SO helpful with tiny ones!

The snowmobiling I understand but the snowcone? Yikes almighty.

Dewena Callis said...

Oh, those sweet smiles on both cousins! and our little boy! As my aunt used to say, "God love him!"

Celestina Marie said...

Diana, So Sweet to see your little guy and the wonder in his face discovering snow. Too adorable and your grand girl is precious!
XO Celestina Marie

Grammy Goodwill said...

How wonderful to see your grandson having fun!

Red Rose Alley said...

Ria is such a good cousin, and such a doll.

I can't help but love your pictures of the snow. They always make my heart sing. I WISH IT WOULD SNOW HERE!

Love,

Vee said...

What a good idea to bring in the snow! It warmed me very nicely to see that handsome little guy playing in the snow.

Maureen Wyatt said...

I'm just thrilled to see that little guy looking so happy and healthy! It's sweet to see his cousin, who's become such a big girl, taking the time to play with him that way. I sure hope that was clean snow that Daddy had to eat!
