Wonders never cease...

For the first time in a decade...Twin Falls school district actually cancelled school for a Snow Day!

You can imagine the joy.  (We told them they didn't have school after the ten pm call from the school district.) I woke up to the sounds of the kids playing some game at 7:30.  

" You guys, I thought you would sleep in to at least 9:00..." I whined.

"Mom we usually get up at 6. This is sleeping in. When can we have pancakes?" was the only response.

I'll never understand why Sunday morning is the only day they actually stay asleep until after 8.  All five kids will sleep late enough on Sunday to make us rush around to get ready by noon.  We are all going to die in January when we go back to the 9 am schedule.

So, instead of making the pie dough, finishing laundry and updating the budget, I spent the day hanging up wet gloves, moving wet boots off the carpet and making endless batches of hot chocolate.  And we watched The Princess Bride.  It was a good day.

Snowballs and...

Snow fights.

Beau "rescuing" Jenna who was making a snow angel.

Today we have below zero wind chill and lots of snow but the storms passed just in time to travel for Thanksgiving.  We hope everyone will be safe!

So FUN!! I love snow and hot chocolate. Not the wet boots and mittens, but I guess that's part of the package.
