Wanna know what we were doing at 7 am in the morning? Checking out the surprise we got from the Master Designer this morning! We knew it would be cold because school was canceled. Of course, I was thinking…sleep in day!! Oh no, the kids where out in their PJ’s dancing in the snow! In the past, school has been canceled due to icy roads and snow up river but not where we live here on the coast! It has snowed one or two other times but has never stuck like this. We were amazed to see the sky on fire as the sunrise grew. Absolutely stunning against all the white we were seeing.
Being Max’s first experience in the snow, he was showing just a tad and decided to try and catch the snowflakes that were higher than Ashley!
I knew it wouldn’t be too long before the snowball fights started! (Remember…this is now maybe 8 am in the morning…I am clutching my coffee cup!)
Wasting no time at all, it was time to build their very first snowman in their own yard. They’ve done it other places but they were so excited to be able to do it in front of our house.
Kelsey says… “This is my best life ever!” and then several minutes later, “it feels like we are in a dream!”
I. am. soaking. it. up.
Truly, the ended up being more like ice sculptures as the snow began to melt and everything got quite icy. He’s a bit sad looking but trust me…he’s happy and he is still standing!
Finally, in the house, cozy by the fire sipping hot chocolate. We’ve had the fire going all day. We’ve never done that before either! It really feels like Christmas. We played board games and created some art. What a gift. What memories.
I do actually have some neat projects to share. They will have to wait until tomorrow. Having too much fun with our first ‘real snow day!’
