today is a good day

I dragged myself out of bed this morning. The kids were still sleeping. "If I hurry I can get nice and ready for the day before they wake-up!" I got up and headed down stairs. I noticed something falling outside the window. "No way....snow!!!!"

I skipped down stairs and opened the back door to asses the situation.
How much snow do we have? How long do we have until it melts? Is it deep enough to pull the kids around in the sled?
Then I heard a sweet little voice calling me from upstairs. I hurried ran outside and made her favorite treat.

Do you think she liked it?


I took her down stairs and opened the window so she could see the snow falling while she ate it.
The only problem was she didn't have her gloves on so her hands were getting "told."


No problem little Lu. I had a little mommy inspiration and put her snowball on a homemade Popsicle stick.


Yes yes my friends...today is going to be a good day. Now I am off to make some hot chocolate so Trey can have his favorite treat when he wakes-up.

Oh I hear his little footsteps now! I'll hurry.

That is so sweet, you are a great mom. Reading this post made me excited for cold snowy days, and that is unusual in the middle of Frebruary.

If you only could have seen the dirty looks I get (from my spouse, no less) when I try to teach my kids to eat the snow. More power to you.

I so do not have the same feelings about snow as you do.
Tears of "un"joy were streaming down my face as I looked out my window this morning.
Boo to snow.
