snow day(s)


Hello there, from the frozen tundra. It hasn't been above freezing in ten days. Elisabeth had four snow days from school. I adore snow days...I love all my little bambinos under one roof. Here is a recap of life lately.

it was too cold to go out and go sledding, so the worlds best dad built snow hills in our backyard // we warmed up by the fire // sledded some more // drank hot chocolate and strong coffee // watch the Olympics // used our brains and pieced together a few puzzles // read the good word // had potato soup // sledded with cousins // warmed up by the fire // silently thanked God for his blessings // sledded some more // played checkers and paper dolls // found the mouse // cheered on team USA // sang and danced to Hey Jude via the Beatles special // Jude and Elisabeth camped out in each others room...and stayed up late...and watched movies...for 6 days straight // there was some snuggling // we have been adjusting to life with just one dog // worshiped // taught 16 two year olds at Sunday school...came home and took a nap // Dr. Pepper Twizzlers // Sunday night dinner// talked about moving to Maui // sledded some more // Lyla told Jude and I quote, "NO! Ju-Ju MYYYYYY strawberries." // Lyla also said, "Mmmmm. It's good. I like it." after tasting the hub's delicious smoothie // consumed more hot chocolate...and more strong coffee // Lyla put yellow glitter lip gloss all over the dog, and dumped a bag of shredded cheese all over the floor // goodnight, don't let the frostbite bite //

Have you had any snow days lately?

Awww! We have had nothing but snow days it seems. It's been so bitterly cold, we couldn't even get the little ones out for more than 5 mins. Just awful.
That said, I have caught up on just about all of the nominated movies + watched Frozen about 1,533,477 times.
