snow day

anticipation caused us to cancel a beach trip. thank goodness it all worked out.
snow=cold. white. beautiful. laughter. smiles. fun. excitement!
it was a perfect weekend. quite a surprise for those of us down south. this is certainly not something we get to experience that frequently. the last time we had snow like this was when sam was just a few months old!
my mom and i made a quick trip to the store for the stuff to make us some chili...yum. it was flurrying and beginning to stick. when we came out the parking lot was covered! i couldn't wait to get home to see my boys play in it! we all stayed up late and drank hot chocolate and watched the opening ceremony of the winter olympics. we even camped out in the den and watched the snow fall all night.
it was such a nice treat for the boys to wake up to a yard covered in white. we spent the whole day playing outside. i just loved it!!!
