snow day!

It started snowing yesterday afternoon and ended around 9 a.m. this morning. From the various reports, it seems we got somewhere between 10-12 inches.

This morning the school district called with a prerecorded message around 5:45 a.m., letting us know that school would be cancelled for the day. When my husband got dressed and headed outside to fire up the snowblower, it was like a party outside. All the men on the street were out there in their gear, doing the same thing.

I thought maybe the kids would be too small to appreciate school being cancelled...but lo and behold, my oldest shouted "no school today!" as he was coming down the stairs for breakfast.

Even though it already was a fun day, I thought they both deserved an extra treat. So for lunch I made them their favorite: macaroni & cheese (of course) and hotdogs. And today was a first, they actually helped me make it!

Hope you have a great weekend...happy February!

I LOVE the photo of your boys. Sounds like a great day all around.

Those are two of SB's favorite foods .... although I find myself sitting here wondering WHY I've never served them together before. ?????

What a wonderful day! Isn't it funny how kids get that whole "snow day" mentality? Hot dogs, and mac & cheese is a favorite here as well.

Ooooohhhh, how wonderful to be able to have a snow day! Over here, they have to send the children home from school if the temps reach 45 deg cel (113 deg f). Enjoy your white paradise!

Snow DAY! I remember the snowy views from when we were up Nawth, though we rarely got a day off because of it. I actually liked getting out in the early morning and looking at it all as I drove the kids to school (I guess that would be the southerner in me that was just wonderous by it all).
