Snow Day!!!

We woke up this morning to the first real snow of the season. Ian started bouncing off the walls as soon as he realized it had snowed. He wanted to go play so badly that the excitement just could not be contained. And once we heard the preschool had been canceled it seemed that his dream would come true. We ate a warm breakfast of oatmeal and then bundled up face the cold.
The boys were thrilled with the winter wonderland we walked into. They dug in the snow. Made snow balls (or at least attempted to). Made tracks. And slide down a mountain.Ian has the book A Pocket for Corduroy by So we ended our snow filled morning with hot chocolate and Christmas cookies.

Oh how I love snow days! Now I get to enjoy the beauty of the snow inside the warmth of my home :)

What a perfect morning! We have snow here, too, but it is much too cold for playing -- today's high was in the single digits!

This looks like so much fun. I wish we could have been there. Bravo to you for managing it all, including hot chocolate.
