a snow day!

A snow day that, really, I was surprised we even had. But I'm glad we did. Everyone off of school and together in the house... Just the best. Matt unfortunately did not work from home that day which was the only bummer.
I had really wanted a snow day this year. Just a day with the kids stuck at home being together and being lazy. All three of my little ducks, all with me, all day long. So you can imagine my happiness last Thursday when that happened! The snow wasn't even that much in terms of inches, and the main roads were perfectly clear, but I guess there was drifting on back roads that led to the school deciding to close. You wouldn't be hearing me complaining! 

We all slept in and started our day slowly, the kids padding down the stairs at random intervals. We wore many many (many) layers and played in the snow again and again (and again). The kids had snow ball fights and made snow angels and played on the swing set. Letty loved using me as target practice and she succeeded in getting snow in my hood which is sort of the worst feeling. We watched movies and had popcorn under blankets on the floor. We sat by the fire with our coffee and our hot cocoa, slowly warming our fingers and toes. Letty ate her weight and then some in snow and icicles. We finished up all our Valentine's for the kid's classes at school and for family. We had a last minute lunch at my parent's that necessitated me shoveling our driveway, yuck!
It was a great day! The final trip out into the cold necessitated a big sippy cup of wine to help warm me up. As soon as Matt got home there were squeals and hugs all around and the kids went barreling up into the tub, all rosy-cheeked. I could use more of these days! Minus the whole make up day business because well, I'd rather it be summer.
