We are in the middle of our first real
snow storm of the season.
The kids are always anxious to get out and play.
(even though their nervous mother wishes they wouldn’t,
as they are all getting over colds.)
It just so happens that we have the perfect sledding hill in our backyard.
Almost an hour later,
they all begged to come in.
Hot cocoa was already waiting for them on the table.
We’d declared early in the morning that today would be a “snow-day”,
as all of the local public schools had been closed.
Even if they hadn’t been closed, we would have still been out,
freezing, and enjoying the time together.
We really needed a fun day, since we all spent the week couped up
with this awful cold...
Uno, Sorry, mounds of books.
Cuddled up cozy by the warmth of the fire,
while the wind howls and blows.
A movie and popcorn to round off the afternoon.
Nothing quite like it really.
A perfect end to a hard week.
