An Unexpected Snow Day

The holiday season has finally come to an end and we are enjoying the new year. We had a wonderful Christmas although it was super busy we got to spend it with loved ones and that is all that matters. The kids had a blast and we had a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Amari was supposed to go back to school on Monday the 4th, however; it snowed here Saturday night and we had freezing rain on Sunday night followed by freezing fog on Tuesday night. Us Pacific Northwesterners don't know how to drive in the snow especially when it turns to ice. It also doesn't help that we haven't had snow in the Couvd in two years.

The snow was very unexpected. I woke up to little squeals of glee from the boys. I could hear the excitement in their voice and picture their little faces with their noses pressed against the window as they peered out at the blanket of snow. For ten minutes I listened to little boy giggles before pulling back the curtains in my room and checking for myself. Sure enough snow covered the ground and it was snowing. My inner child beamed with excitement, I'm not going to lie.

We put on our winter gear and headed out into the snow.  A snow day was a perfect way to start off the new year and I hope we get more this winter. 


This morning I woke up to little boy squeals of glee. "Daddy it's snowing, it's snowing!" I heard my oldest say. Sure enough as I pulled back our brown curtains and looked out the window my eyes landed on a fresh blanket of snow on the ground. Flakes still fall from the clouds above and I just want it to keep on snowing. It's been two years since it snowed here in the Couve and their is nothing more magical than seeing the excitement on my children's faces as they gaze upon it with wonder.
 
Thanks for stopping bye, enjoy your day!
