white flakes of goodness

Our last few days have been consumed with cold and snow. And snow and cold. It has been fun!

Thursday was a snow day and Friday ended up being a snow day too. NO SCHOOL!!  When we woke up Friday morning up there was no snow falling. We knew it was coming, and about the time the kids and I got in the car to go meet Gary for lunch it started dumping buckets of snow!

I drove in snow and slush for the first time. Even when it snowed in Texas I never felt the need to drive. I was excited to put my Jeep in 4 wheel drive.

Since dad was working I took the kids to friends house and Layla did some sledding. The boys decided to play Wii, but the girls had a fun time playing in the snow.

Brandy and Jeff have a fun hill behind their house and the girls decided to sled down the hill as many times as they could.  They were laughing and giggling and building snowmen on top of tree stumps.  

We had a pretty late night Friday night, so we had a very low key day today.  The kids took naps and we did a little grocery shopping.  It snowed even snowed a little more today.  I'm glad the kids got to experience a few snow days, but I am also hoping to get back into our routine Monday.  I feel like being off routine makes me eat horribly.  I am starving lately and have really been giving in and eating everything I see.  Here's to cleaning up my act!

I've never been sledding. I think it would be sooo much fun!
