This morning we awoke to snow.
Not tons of snow but snow timed to make the roads nasty and dangerous.
Giving us a SNOW DAY!
But then we did!
All winter we have had mild temps in the upper 30's and 40's. I have to admit, I have loved it. But if we are going to get snow, let us have the snow day!
We made waffles for breakfast and then shoveled off the vehicles and shoveled the walkways. I fed all the wild birds that were flocked at the feeder while the two youngest boys went in to get warm and the two oldest went out to see if the snow mobiles were taking the trail in the back of our property. When our tummies began to rumble for lunch, S4 suggested a picnic. And then he set it all up himself.
While S4 has a bit of cheesy grin here, he was truly happy with the way this all worked out for us. He loves picnics and that everyone did just what they should do and sat in just the spots he chose and the bunnies were in on the fun...well, this was the best snow day ever for him, i do believe.
After we had cleaned the junk drawer - S4 now deems it the clean drawer, it only had 6 years of collection in it (haven't cleaned it since I was nesting last) - we took down the Christmas decorations. My sister in law called and ended up stopping with her two boys on the way home from the vet.
My brother just purchased this adorable Pomeranian puppy for her.
It was a really great time.
YOU try getting a good picture of six boys and puppy!
My husband arrived home from plowing snow exhausted and hungry. He was going to bring us pizza but it got too late for that so we had leftover lasagna and birthday cake. You really can never go wrong if your first thought for dinner is ice cream - and you then you have ice cream.
The boys and I stayed up late watching a movie all cuddled on the couch, bunnies tucked away in their home outside. I painted my nails - because you all wanted to know that sort of information - a bright sparkly glitter pink.
Why yes, it was a rather perfect snow day.
