Snow day

We're still here....just buried under more snow! It started on Saturday afternoon, changed to freezing rain for a while, and then changed back to snow on Sunday. We only got about 5 inches of snow, but the layer of ice under the snow has made the roads really slick. They cancelled school for today and we are already on a 2 hour delay for tomorrow. This was day #4! I saw on the news tonite that the average snowfall for this time of year is around 3.5 inches, but this year we have already gotten over 10"! I hope that's not an indication of how the rest of the winter is going to be....or we'll be in school until July!!! I am getting lots and lots of Christmas preparation done. I should have no reason to be scrambing and stressed out on Christmas Eve.

It was a great weekend just to stay home! We spent most of Sunday with our neighbors. We had already planned on a brunch with 2 of our neighbors, but because of the snow and school cancellation brunch extended into the evening and we ended up ordering pizza together for dinner. The kids went out for a little bit in the late afternoon and I braved the cold for a very short time to snap a few photos.

Jacob heading to brunch at the neighbors. We loaded everything in the kids' sled and he pulled it over.
There's a story behind this photo. Our neighbor's son was in Florida last week visiting his aunt and uncle and was supposed to fly home Saturday. He ended up rescheduling his flight home for Monday due to the snow. In the meantime, his aunt emailed a photo of him lounging on the beach in the sun (knowing we were stuck in cold, snowy weather). So we took this photo to send back to him...

It looks like fun (if you're a kid!). And Jill misses this weather because...?

Fun! I remember being out there forever, and not caring how cold it was. Do you give your kids hot chocolate in santa mugs and dip toast in it when they come in though?

Mmm...hot chocolate with toast. Yum. :)

Nope...no hot chocolate with toast. What kind of a mom am I? I don't even own Santa mugs!!!
