34/365 Waiting for Snow and Then & Now

We are not from around here, but from what I understand, we have made history this week with our weather and they are predicting we will get 1-4 inches tonight, which is VERY rare for our parts. The kids are so excited and keep looking out the window. I really hope it snows for them! My youngest 2 have never seen snow.

Edited to add: Now they are only calling for a trace to an inch of snow. Boo! 

And because of this weather, my husband had to leave early for work, so my plan did not pan out for the Joy of Love class. So I am breaking the rules a bit and posting a recent picture of us taken right before Christmas. We had been dating about 2 or 3 months in the first picture and here we are 9 and a half years later in all of our beautiful chaos, happy and in love!

Your now pic caught my eye in the linky party. So cute. I love the colors and the kids in their costumes. I did a similar take on the day 3 theme too.

The then and now is precious! But I love the waiting for snow picture- he looks so hopeful!

Kristin said...

I'm all about breaking rules and it's one of things I told myself I could do before even starting this project to even give me a fighting chance to stick with it. I love your take on the then/now because it really is then and NOW! You have a beautiful family that is so well reflected in this great picture.

And I hope yours were as excited as mine when they woke up this morning! Only problem now is trying to figure out which picture to use for today....there are SO many!

It's so neat to see you two young, and then to see your life now! What wonderful things have happened in 9 1/2 years!
