Ice in Florida?

Yup, ice . . . in Florida. =0) We had a bit of a cold spell here. It's about time, I say - it's strange to live in a place that only really has 2 seasons . . . a very long Summer and some kind of a Spring. No fall, no real winter . . . except for this year. We actually had a winter! =0)

This past weekend we had "snow". Okay, so more like rain mixed with sleet . . . with a few flurries. =0) Not the winters we were used to in Maryland, but hey, it works. =0)

Isaiah was in heaven! He heard the word snow on the weather channel and went nuts! "SNOW! I build a snowman an frow snowballs!" So, just to let you know what we got to do this past weekend . . .

Poor icy tree . . . odd how it turned white . . . the others seemed fine

Icy lawns . . . don't let my dad know you saw his patchy-brown lawn . . . he takes pride in his usually green lawn. =0)

See the sleet bouncing off my dad's truck?

Okay, now on with the cute pics. =0)

Just look at that face . . . not sure of what to think of the invisible snow =0)

Pleased that the sky was making the "snow" (it was sleet with a tad bit of rain)

He caught some on his glove - "Wook, Mommy, a snowfwake!" =0)

"Awesome!" =0)

So happy =0)

Snow dance, anyone?

Still dancin'

Catching the ever illusive snowflakes =0)

My little "snow angel" =0)

Fascinated by the sleet tapping the umbrella

"I'm singin' in the . . . uh, sleet!" =0)

Of course he had to use his umbrella . . . "ev-wee day is an umb-weh-wah day!" =0)
