Snow Days

Last weekend we got our first snow of the season. Up until then it had been ridiculously warm. The night we set up our Christmas tree it was pouring rain.

But December came, and the weather changed... and we got snow.

Lots and lots of snow.

Our kids had not one, not two, but three snow days this week!

So... we hibernated in the house for three days. We ate soup and homemade baked goods, watched Christmas movies, sipped hot chocolate, wrapped presents, and pretended we were having an early Christmas vacation.

The only time we went outside the house was to build snow forts and go sledding and work on the backyard ice rink and shovel the driveway.

And when I say "we", I mean Scott and the kids, of course.

I stayed inside by the fireplace to stay warm keep an eye on Nathan and Clara while they napped and watched Dora.


  1. Jayna says - "Can we do the same when I get there? I like to make snow angels like you. I like to go to the North Pole. I love you and I miss you."

    Kepler says - "I just want to write a message to Nathan. I like you. I miss you."

    I can't believe they got 3 snow days, I only ever remember getting 1 growing up. That skating rink is huge! I hope the snow stays for Christmas.

  2. I can't believe how much snow you got! The skating rink is huge! I can't wait to see pictures of it all done!


I love hearing from you! :)
