Ok so I think who ever invented the "SNOW DAY" needs to be SHOT!! I am the most horrible mother because I usually HATE snow days!! I hate them for a couple of reasons...#1 - I hate the mess snow makes inside the house (I think it looks absolutely beautiful outside), and I can't stand that you spend 45 minutes to get the kids all dressed up for them to spend 15 seconds outside before they start freezing, and #2 - I usually have to deal with it all by myself. Since my hubby is usually at work. But, today wasn't too bad for a couple of reasons...#1 - my hubby was home!! YEAH!! So he got to spend half the day outside with them. #2 - we invited our good friends the McLaws family over to have some fun with us. (So I got to stay inside with Shawna and enjoy some adult conversation) Our kids had a blast!! This was the first snow they got to play in this winter. I still had to clean up the mess though.

I seriously have NEVER seen a little girl that can stand the cold like Eva can.

Hey Michael...you know you would stay drier a lot longer if you zipped up your jacket...right?

What is it with the McLaws kids and thier icicles?
