Snow - Yipee!

What is it about snow that makes it so magical? Even as an adult, just the weather man's mention of snow makes me all excited in anticipation of a day off and play time outside. Now granted I would have been off today no matter what (bed rest is GROSS!) but I really wanted Colby home with me today!

One of the silly (but wonderful) people I work with told the kids that in order for it to snow outside you have to flush ice cubes down the toilet, so that is exactly what Colby and I did before we headed to bed (an hour too late for a school night) last night!

I haven't slept a wink all night long and I was really beginning to get nervous about the snow not coming at all around 4:00 am! But here it is and it seems to be piling up quickly. Good thing too, but I had already started drafting an apology letter to Colby's teacher in my head for his grumpiness today had he gone to school!

I plan to get Colby all bundled up later in the day and let him have at it outside. We always have so much fun playing in the snow! This year I will still go out and tromp around, but I won't be able to participate in my FAVORITE snow play activity.............jumping on the trampoline! If you haven't tried! It is dangerous and probably shouldn't be attempted, but it is the funniest thing I have ever seen!! One of our favorite family memories in the snow!

Have a wonderful Snow Day friends...........and if you have to get out, be careful!
