Snow Day - The Update

We had a blast out in the snow. We didn't stay out to long because the kids got cold pretty quick, but they had fun looking at it. The boys made snow angels and made mini snowballs. Riley was not really please with the whole thing. She slipped on the back porch area and that was the end of her fun. It was still snowing when we went out and the kids tried to catch snowflakes on their tongues, but they were not to successful. After our outside adventure, we drank some hot chocolate and snuggled to watch a movie. Naps were something that never actually happened, although there was a lot of pretend napping. Right now, the kids are pretending they are in Florida at the Alligator Farm. I think they are ready for warmer temps so they can play outside. We did make a Valentines cake and we will be making Daddy's favorite cookies here in a little bit. So far it has been a wonderful day. I have enjoyed feeling like a stay at home mom again (even if Riley did get up at 5:00 instead of letting Mommy sleep in!). Maybe it will freeze again tonight and we can do it all over again tomorrow! :)

How fun! I loved all the pictures. Sometimes it is nice to all be trapped at home together for a little while. I hope you guys will be able to do it again tomorrow. Claire keeps asking when we are going to have snow. I hope we will get one this year. :)

I L.O.V.E. snow days!! I love it when we're all home together. AJ wakes up during the week and knows that "Daddy at wok". When he wakes up and daddy's home, he gets so excited. Jason was even able to take a snow (ice) day Wednesday. It was a good day. Caleb is getting the tubes in his ears right? I'd love to send him a card. E-mail me your address and the actual date of the surgery and I'll be sure to get that in the mail for him.
Love ya,

Sounds like you guys had fun. I wish we would get a snow day. It is 70+ degrees here. Got to love Houston.

We are hoping for just one snow day too so we can play in it:) Glad you got a day "off" (do we mommies ever really get a vacation day?).
