You Know You Live In California When.......

You know you live in CA when they shut down all the schools and the entire town after only 3 inches of snow has fallen.
(This is the view off our back patio that we woke up to Friday morning) You know you live in CA when rain for 5 days and then a dump of snow calls for headlines on the news that read,"STORM WATCH 2010!!"
(Our backyard)
You know you live in CA when you have to tape your kids feet in baggies to play in the snow because when you go to the closet they own 14 pairs of flip flops and NO SOCKS!!!
(The girls wishing we were in Hawaii already ;)
(The front view of our little street)
Waking up to our little neighborhood covered in snow was so fun. It snowed all day and into the night. The only bummer part is when it snows here all the oak trees snap and we loose our power; so it was a little dark and cold all day. Nothing hot cocoa and playing board games all day won't cure though. We were blessed enough to have Dan home so it was a go sledding, nap on the couch, eat lunch by candle light kind of day. So fun. We took a "home school snow day" of course.

Which you should - because home school kids need reprieve as well. Too Fun!! Such fun to see the world white in winter for a change.

The view from your house was so pretty! WE had fun playing at WIldwood Park. Ethan had his feet wrapped up in plastic baggies too, hehe.

Love the table. I agree that it is very exciting to upgrade your furniture. It will be a while for us... our kids are in the middle of abusing it all, lol. When they are bigger I'll get different stuff :)

I love looking at the pretty snow but hate actually walking and driving in it. All our snow melted here in MI, we got some rain yesterday which is unusual for Michigan in January but I'll take that over snow any day. Wishing it was Spring :)

The first thing Becca said when she woke on Friday was "Mom, can Morgan come over and play in the snow?" I told her you guys got a bunch too :-) Sooo happy we all got to play in it :-)

Wow friend! That is such a gorgeous view from your house of all the snow. What an exciting day! I think Dan was right that we wouldn't have been able to get up to your place Friday night. Wish we could have! Love ya

Hey, hey, hey....There is nothing wrong with cancelling school for 1 inch of snow :)

Btw, your kids own only flip flops because they're "your" kids. ;)~

You could always participate online! I might not be practical to drive up to physically meet with us, but we're not limiting it to just local people, since a lot will take place just by posting pictures online.
