Snow Day Favorite Things

A few of my favorite things...
  • Lazy mornings with nowhere to go, which means coffee and devotions by the fireplace
  • The way snow looks
  • Red noses and rosy cheeks
  • The kids' faces while they're sledding
  • Pancakes made by my husband
  • Watching a movie with the family
  • Chicken corn chowder for lunch
  • Playing Super Mario on the Nintendo with Brianna while the boys napped
  • Having a sledding competition with Stephen (even though I lost)
  • Listening to Brianna scream every time she went down a hill
  • Watching Brianna figure out that she enjoyed sledding backwards
  • Hunter making tracks for almost an entire half hour by dragging his sled behind him
  • Making snow angels
  • Eating snow cream
  • Hunter's idea to put sprinkles on the snow cream
  • Pulled pork barbecue in the crockpot all day, making the house smell incredible
  • Lots of Uno and Old Maid
  • Making sugar cookies in the shapes of snowmen and snowflakes to commemorate the event of an official snow day

The day BEFORE the snow day... anticipating the snow's arrival:

Okay, now it's officially snowing. Bundle up!

Oops, not used to taking pictures with gloves on.

Snow angels: Mine's on top, Bri's is on the left and Hunter's is on the right

The obligatory (and delicious) snow cream:

The cookies: (highly decorated thanks to Grandma presenting us with lots of varieties of sprinkles!)

Brianna sledding - 11 seconds

Hunter sledding - 25 seconds (Beware - at the end I say "Yay!" and it's super loud!)

Hunter sledding - 15 seconds

Brianna sledding - 25 seconds (watch out - another big laugh from me at the end!)

Brianna telling our "plan" for tomorrow - 21 seconds (she was so adorable I just had to video tape it but then we got sidetracked by her cuteness)

Brianna just being her cute self - "The Plan" take two - 2 minutes, 15 seconds
