last friday, the 6th, we woke up to a white blanket of snow! around here, just the thought of snow is enough for the whole town to go into panic mode, buy all the necessities at the store, and cancel anything and everything. so, school was cancelled. the kids were outside by 7 am. charlie lasted about 20 minutes before he came in with cold toes and hands and hunkered down to watch some cartoons. owen and i slept (or tried to sleep through the noise) until 8:30.... thats the best part of a snow day if you ask me! after warming up, charlie, owen and i headed out at 8:30 to check out jack and ellie's snowman and do some sledding. we are lucky to have an empty lot right across the street that is situated on a slight hill. perfect for kids their age. the kids stayed out ALL DAY except for lunch, when i forced them to come in for soup and ham and cheese sliders. owen wasn't a big fan of sledding, but he didn't want to miss out on one second of the snowy fun. he walked up and down that hill over and over, trying to keep up with the big kids. they had some buddies over for a couple hours in the afternoon, so while owen napped, thats when i was finally able to catch up on this dang blog! i guess that was one blessing from the snow ;) it was fun for a day and I'm glad the kids got to make the most of it. and I'm super glad that its all melted now :)
i pulled out the nice camera and didn't check the settings. these pics are overexposed, but oh well, i still love them!
