Deep and crisp and even ...



For the first time in heaven only knows how many years it looks as though we will come within a hare's whisker of a white Christmas!  Who would have thought it here in Kent?!  We woke to a Winter Wonderland on Friday morning, a thick blanket of pure white snow laying as far as the eye could see.  It was so pretty!





We're not used to heavy snow here in the South East of England, so cars couldn't make their way to work, schools were closed and children and adults alike delighted in snow ball fights and building snowmen.  Stuart and I wrapped up well and went out for a very slippery walk with my kids ... which naturally descended into a snow ball challenge between the boys!



Puddle cat was very excited by the snow and bounced across the garden up to her little black nose, before deciding the white stuff was a little too chilly on her paws.  It didn't take long for her to bounce right back into the warmth of the house!


Our snow Puddle! 


My kids enjoying their snow stroll.
 

Our snowy road!


Snowy smiles with my daughter.

It snowed again last night, so there's still about a foot of snow outside ... I wonder if it will all melt away by Christmas Day?

The boys dug my little car out of the snow on Saturday, so we could slip slide our way to collect Stuart's grandson yesterday and take him to see the pantomime at Croydon's Fairfield Halls ... well, some Christmas traditions should be upheld whatever the weather (not to mention the fact I was on a mission to introduce the little man to 'Sooty and Sweep')! 

Fortunately by the time we set out the main roads out of town had been salted, so we arrived at the theatre without too much trouble and had a wonderful afternoon full of fairy dust and laughter!

Oh wow, I'm envious... when snow like that falls here in Michigan overnight... that just means you have to wake up a half hour early and scrape off your car :(

I keep making the mistake of living places that are too well equipped to handle this stuff! XD

It's fantastic that you all got snowdays though!!

I remember the magic of them from being little... going out until you froze, then running inside for waiting Hot Chocolate!!!!

Hi Paula!

It looks like you were lucky to have a lot of snow in your place (I know, snow is not always fun but when it is so rare, you can only enjoy it).
We only had a very little snow the week before Christmas, enough to cover the ground, no more and it stays a few days. We had rain for Christmas.
Your photos are beautiful and thank you very much for sharing!

Lots of hugs,
Sophie.
