Snow Day!

Yesterday was a snow day. We had a thunder snow the night before and we accumulated about 9 inches of snow.  Hubby was out early shoveling the driveway in case I went into labor sometimes yesterday.  The kids woke up and he took them outside with him. They had fun playing in the snow while he shoveled. I was oblivious because he totally let me sleep in. It was so nice to get some extra sleep.

When I got up it was time for Buggy to come in. She kept losing her gloves and her little hands were frozen.  She joined me inside in the warmth and I made her a mug of hot chocolate. It was a big hit.  About an hour later a crying Boogie came in. Poor guy, his little hands  hurt so much because of the cold. After a quick trip to the bathroom, shedding his snow clothes, and a mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows, my little guy was quite happy again.

Our neighbor is a great guy and offered the use of his snowblower.  He's a very nice guy, but I also think he could hear Boogie's very loud questions about when I was going to the hospital to give birth to Baby J. I think our neighbor was very happy to help however he could.

We had  a relaxing afternoon and once again I was able to take advantage of Hubby being home and was able to take another nap.  I'm taking advantage of getting a nap whenever I can these days.  When I woke up, the boys were out again. The snow plow had come by and finally plowed out our cul-de-sac, but of course dumped snow in front of our driveway. While Hubby shoveled, Boogie played in the snow.  They also took time to build a snowman. I was so happy Boogie was able to do this. Even though we had back to back blizzards last year, he never made a snow man. It was actually too much snow to wade through for a 3 (almost 4) year old.

We had a relaxing dinner of grilled cheese and soup, perfect for a cold winter day. I was happy to have my family home and to enjoy some time with them before we become a family of 5 :)

Buggy talking on the phone while she prepares "dinner." She was "talking" to her Lola.  I think this is how she often sees me when I'm cooking dinner. I'm usually talking to a friend and trying to multitask.

I love the look on Boogie's face of finally making a snowman. Something he's talked about since the last big snowstorm, a year ago.

I love the look of joy on his face.

A serious artist.

I LOVE this picture!
