Snow Days

School has been out all week due to snow and ice. It has been nice to sleep a little longer. Tim even got a couple of days off due to the weather. I was torn if that was a good thing or a bad thing. Pros were he took the kids outside so that I did not have to. They mainly stayed upstairs with him and played video games. Cons were that he was worse than the kids. "I'm hungry. Are you going to make anything to eat?", He can make a bigger mess than all three kids put together. When they came inside from outside all the gear went right in the middle of the floor. He said he was drying it out. It is still there 3 days later. I did enjoy getting some lovey time on really cold days.
All bundled up and ready to go out
Practicing making snow angels insideEli just kept running to the road. Recognize the snow suit Widney Woman?

The next day we took the kids to McDonald so they could get out of the house. They have a great playground and because we were the only crazy ones to go out in it, it was pretty much to ourselves. This was a nice change and helped them and us get over feeling so cooped up.


  1. Okay. I had to giggle a little bit when I read/saw this. There are piles of snow in excess of five feet lining my driveway right now and Abby hasn't had a snow day since before Christmas. It's a little weird for me to see what to us is a "light dusting" shut school down for a week. Thanks for posting the pictures!!

  2. I grew up in Oregon and we had snow days when it got icy too. I remember loving it so much as a kid.

    Isn't the husband always worse than the kids? LOL. Mine can mess up the house faster than the kids any day.
