Snow Day!!

Schools here were closed today because we got some more snow last night! I *love* snow days. The kids and I have essentially had a four-day weekend because I let them skip school yesterday to go to the North Pole.

We've had a great day. Very low key and very cozy. John worked from home which was great! I was thankful he didn't have to drive in to work this morning because the roads were slick and things were a mess. We tried our best to leave him alone so he could work...but goodness, it's so much fun for the kids when dad is home!

The girls baked and decorated some cookies this afternoon. Jack snuck more than his fair share of unbaked cookies too. Arghh.

When John got his work stuff finished up, we all bundled up and headed to Toboggan Hill for some sledding fun. It was 20 degrees and still snowing, so we didn't stay too long, but we had a blast!

I would love another snow day tomorrow, but I think the roads are in okay shape and everything will re-open. That's okay though...I haven't started Christmas shopping and I really need to take advantage of my kid-free mornings from now until Christmas break!

Oh, I love these pictures! I can almost smell the snow and feel my nose hairs freeze. Sigh. Enjoy!

Looks like fun. We've only had one light dusting, which was gone by noon. Unusual for around here. My guys are itching for the kind of snow you have!

I am way jealous!! I miss snow days!

*Sigh*.....Snow....It was 75 degrees today. However, we have a chance of snow on Saturday with a high of 35 and a low of 20, which will be our coldest night so far this season.

I love the snow, but not the ice. I feel so sorry for everyone in the midwest that's dealing with the terrible ice storm. We've weathered some bad ones here in Northeast Arkansas but I hope we don't have any this Winter.

I loved your pictures in both these posts. These are the things memories are made of, and your kids will treasure these memories, as I know you will too.

Hope you make the homemade egg noodles and enjoy them.

Love and hugs,

Okay, I recognize that hill! We live very close to one another! Let's hope for another snow day tomorrow.... then Saturday, Breckenridge, here we come!

We have not had a snow day in years! My boys have never had enough snow to go sledding - they would love that hill. What gorgeous snow - must have been a great day.
