Snow Day!

We had our first real snow of the year today, and school was cancelled! I was excited about that: Eliza’s school party was supposed to be today so I was planning on taking Jake to work so I could drive to the party in the afternoon (I hate driving and rarely do it). Me + driving = bad enough without snow and ice.

The kids and I spent a large portion of the day in pajamas (which is normal for Jonas and I, but a treat for Eliza.) We did crafts, watched movies, read books, and (best of all) played outside!!!

Jonas refused to keep his gloves on and kept touching the snow with his bare hands, which of course hurt after a bit and made him cry. So Jonas and I went back in and Eliza played alone for a bit longer.

Hot chocolate fixes everything.

And Jonas stole a lot of Eliza’s hot chocolate, too.

P.S. Jake almost wrecked several times on the way to work today. Our new-to-us car is rear wheel drive. We’re going to put sandbags in the trunk, which should help for next time.

Do you get snow where you live? Do you love it or hate it?
