What to muse about today?

Snow Sisters

Snow Sisters

Wow.  Can’t believe it’s almost the end of the year.  This year has really flown by.

Today was a snow day!  Yay!  We were supposed to go home, have lunch with the ‘rents, get hair cuts, meet up with friends, have dinner with the gang.  The forecast changed plans.  We were expected to get about 6-8 inches.  Right now, I think we have a solid eight.  And who wouldn’t want that?

Earlier this afternoon, we all bundled up in hats*, coats, boots, mittens or gloves and headed out to play.  Or shovel the driveway.  The girls loved sledding down the hill in our yard.  They’re still small enough that it’s a good hill.

We started with the small sled, the one person sled.  Teagan LOVED it.  She wasn’t too sure last year, but she’s bigger now.  She didn’t want to stop.  Ashlin, I think, felt a little left out, and we dug out the bigger sled.  She was very reluctant to go down the hill with her sister and I, but eventually agreed.  She had fun!  Each time, she’d do a “no, no no” but as we started going down, she’d say “yay!”

Teagan enjoyed her hot cocoa today.  Last year, she wasn’t convinced it was a good thing.

I did spell Stu a bit, let him sled with the girls, while I shoveled.

It was a good day.  Even with some of the tears and occasionally turned-off listening-ears.  Both girls were tired, early.  Heaven.


* Somehow, I don’t have a hat!  Oh! No!

      So much fun!! We got to go out today too, though I had to do a few runs alone, to blaze a trail so the powder wouldn’t hit the girls in the face.

      Happy New Year to you!

    Does look like they were having fun. I’m with ‘sew tempting’…you may keep all 8 inches and any more you guys may have had by now. :-) Too bad you can’t send some to Barb!!! She loves that stuff. HA HA. The hot cocoa sounds good. We had ONE day that it was that type of day. ;-) and oh yeah…why don’t you have a hat??? Too busy making one for everyone else/?? js/

      Snow is fun when you can come back inside and get all warm and drink hot cocoa with marshmallows :) I SHOULD send some to Barb, she sounds like she needs some!!

      I just started another throw for me, for the living room, and then have to do a hat for Stu, then my turn again…

        yeah, yeah….believe that when I see it. HAHA. The cocoa/marshmallows thing is good even in FL without SNOW. ;-)

          Small doses of snow is awesome – snow men, snow angels, snow forts… then lovely heat and hot cocoa? The best!

          I think there’s something special about it being cold and having hot cocoa… extra snuggly. Though hot cocoa is always nice, expecially with marshmallows :D
