Snow Day 2011

One of my favorite, favorite things in this world is snow!  Of course, I live in central Alabama, so I don't get to see it that often...I think I like it so much because it's so rare (we want what we can't have)...ha!  

You guys that are getting like 2 feet of snow are probably going to LAUGH at my measly little 2"...but we were proud of it!  We only get this much snow every couple of years.


It started right after dinner last night..it was so pretty falling!  We usually get snow in the middle of the night, so getting to watch it fall is a rarity too.


It was really coming down for awhile!

This is what our street looked like when I woke up...I didn't expect it to still be around!  SO pretty!

I usually HATE the empty field by our house, but it was really pretty in the snow!


Hardy is definitely a southern dog...he isn't a snow fan.  He LOVED when we brought snowballs to him to eat, as long as we were inside.  But he would purposely step in the parts of the grass that had no snow when he had to go outside for bathroom time...haha!

This is where he spent the majority of his snow day. :)


We did have to go into work at 10, but I didn't mind...we're out of weather days, and would have had to make it up at the end of the year...no thanks!  This is what my drive to work looked like (don't worry, I was at a stop).  So beautiful!

This has been a really, really great week.  I don't know, I've just felt extremely at peace, and I fully trust that God's got our situation under control.  I know this might not be our month (knowing my medical state right now, it's pretty unlikely that this is our month), but I just trust that God's going to take care of this!  That's a really, really good feeling...something I've been trying to achieve for awhile now.

And I'll admit, jealousy of women that don't have to go through this has been something I've struggled with lately.  (PLEASE don't take this the wrong way if you didn't struggle to get pregnant...I'm not mad at you, but the jealousy has been uncontrollable.)  It just feels like that has kind of lifted this week too.  I'm still working on it, but I finally feel like I can hear about a pregnancy/birth and not want to run and/or cry my eyes out.  That is SO huge for me...that's been one of the hardest parts of this!  And I am extremely thankful it's finally starting to get better now...we have a lot of family/friends that are due in the next couple of months, and I've been dreading going through that with these feelings.  Knowing that it's better is very comforting!
