No Snow Glistening Here!

Sleigh bells ring! Are you listening?

Okay, NOW I can start dragging myself into the Christmas Spirit. Now that it is officially December, I can see the holiday approaching. Not that I could help knowing it was on it's way since the stores started in on the friggin' Christmas music on the first of November.

In the lanes, snow is glistening!

There's no snow here. We're in the south. The only snow my children have experienced are a few flurries every now and then. They've never built a snowman, nor do they know what a sled looks like.

A beautiful sight we're havin' tonight. Walking in a Winter Wonderland!

Hmm, our winter wonderland would have to be the Santa display at the mall.

The only thing I miss about the north is a new blanket of snow. You know the one where you look out the window and get excited about how beautiful and white it is? The snow that you run outside to taste? Before the cars drive through it and create a disgusting slush on the side of the road... My kids have yet to experience that.

Instead, many Christmas mornings here are warm enough to go outside and play with that new bike or those great remote control cars with a sweater and a light jacket on.

Okay, I'm done babbling. Now go back to your Christmas bliss!

We're in Arkansas and have maybe one good snow a year which is too bad--I love watching the snow fall!

My daughter has yet to see snow either. Heck, I didn't see snow until I was in Jr. High.

We saw some really great snow when we were in Oklahoma. But he only sled my kids saw was the lid to our trash can. hehe But man can that thing FLY when attached to my hubby's waist as he runs around the backyard. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I know what you mean....I live in FL so we see no snow!!! I've actually been thinking that one winter we need to travel up north so the kids can experience a "white christmas"

And you know, I'm from the south too and they can keep that Winter Wonderland stuff up north!! :)

I don't own enough sweatshirts for all that stuff!

Christmas bliss? What's that? Has anyone see my debit card???

One day I plan to take them to my Grandparents in Michigan, but you have to go at the right time in the city cause that snow can get yucky and black quickly!

Slick- that's what my husband says.

Jiggety - Love the Christmas Pic!

LOL! When we left NJ for the south, it was April. The buyers of our home had never seen the lawn because every time they came, there'd be fresh snow on it. I'd like to say I miss it, but er, um, that shoveling? For. The. Birds. We're happy to visit snowy places and then... leave.

Happy holidays, my love. I feel you on the bah humbug... my holiday spirit doesn't kick in until about a week before. The rest of the time, I'm stressing out!

I don't miss the snow. But you do remember that it snowed here at least three times last year. And it stuck! I couldn't believe it - driving home was a precarious situation.

That is so funny that your winter wonderland is at the mall. How I remember when mine was the same..I'm from Texas. Here in Germany we've seen a little snow but that is good enough because when there's too much...it's a mess but still beautiful! Have fun getting in the Christmas spirit!
