Can you guess what today was?!


Here is a hint:

Here's another hint:

The part of Michigan that we live in got it's first big snow lastnight! This is late in the year for these parts! But, This snow grinch (ME) is certainly not complaining!

So, guess what the boys got to do?

They got a snow day and got to stay home from school!

Jacob was very excited about this! Nolan and Caleb wanted to go to school, but they were very excited about the opportunity to play outside in all the snow!

What about Gavin?

He got a snow day from school too, but instead of playing outside, he decided to play under the Christmas tree with his toys!

I actually LOVE snow days! I like the opportunity of having my boys home with me for an unexpected day of fun. I love getting more time with them and I love watching their excitement!

But, How do I feel about the snow?????


It's BEAUTIFUL.....but that's about it!

Here we go..........Wet boots, hats, gloves, snowpants and coats! Wet floors and rugs! Dangerous driving conditions. More time in getting the boys ready to go anywhere and more time getting there! And, LOTS of Shoveling! UGH!

But, it sure is gorgeous!

"Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow." Isaiah 1:18

I just LOVE that last picture with the dog and the tree house and the snow! That's really beautiful.

That said, I can't say I miss snow days. I was looking at your pics of the boys and remembering how great it was to get a snow day and how I really wanted to go out and play but I kind of didn't, too because it's snow and wet and it takes a long time to thaw out!

It's supposed to be in the upper 20s here tonight but NO SNOW!

Kristen's mom said...

Wow the snow is beautiful. I hear we have snow on the way this weekend, if it would just stay off the roads! Your Gavin is darling and I love that he loves the tree.

Alicia said...

Awesome!! But, I thought you said you were going to send all the snow our way! ; )

I am glad the boys had fun. Snow days are always a blast!

Have a great weekend!

I so hate snow. We never get snow days. They make them go even if it snows 10 feet. Yuck.

After living in the snow for 26 years,I can say I miss it ... only on Christmas Day!!Seriously though,it is pretty and fun.My child know nothing of snowball fights and sledding and igloo making ... I miss that part.Although,if you can afford it her,you can get to the snow in about 2 hours,Just expensive to stay there.My older girls have never been.Ever.

Love the pictures of Gavin .. perfect place under the tree!

We are expecting snow this coming week too.

LOVE the picture of your guy playing underneath the Christmas tree.

I am completely with you on the snow issue..NOT my favorite. I'm shocked we haven't had any yet! Noah is so jealous though!! Yesterday...we would get one flake to fall every 5 or 10 minutes...he was so hoping for more. :0)
