Yesterday, we got DUMPED on! We got over 12 inches overnight! It was a mess!!! Our school district hasn't had a Snow Day in years, but they decided to make it a half-day and let the parents decide whether or not to send their kids. We needed help to dig ourselves out of the driveway, so we kept them home! Ha ha ha! They pretty much spent the whole day out in the snow, either shoveling driveways in the neighborhood or digging trenches for snowball fights! They had a blast!

Sammy begged and begged me to help her build a snowman. So, when it became clear that she wasn't going to let up, I helped her build one. The snow was perfect for it!

Brendan absolutely LOVES to play in the snow. After about an hour of jumping in it and almost becoming an icesicle, he screamed when I brought him inside! I even tried to bribe him with cookies and watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (two of his favorite things) and it still didn't help! Oh, well, he's all boy I guess!

Snow day in Roosevelt? Wow! It must have been quite the storm! I remember very very few days that we got out of school even in super duper cold weather! i'm glad you could seize the day! Winter is proving pretty mild here thankfully! I don't dig icy roads and hills! Hope you are well!
