Snow Day

So, we saw our first snow of the year (I'm optimistic that it won't be our last) on Thursday afternoon. It was really pretty while coming down. Unfortunately after a week of temps in the 20s, Thursday was kind of warm. So, it took a while for the snow to start sticking. I would guess we got close to a half inch.

On Friday morning, everyone bundled up...which was no small task and resulted in quite a whine fest from Jack. We headed outside to explore the white powder. I tried in vain to encourage Jack to toss some around, but he mostly complained about how it was "cold totside." Needless to say I spent more time bundling us both up (think bundling a 2-year-old up is tough? add a pregnant lady to the mix!) than we spent outside. After some muffins, Josh headed to the office and Jack and I stayed inside where it was nice and warm.

The new year has gotten off to a great start. Last weekend was so much fun. Josh was off Friday and didn't have to work any on Saturday or the three of us spent lots of quality time together. In the last couple of weeks, Jack has developed a precious little habit that neither Josh nor I will grow tired of. Each night when we put Jack to bed, we each tell him that we love him. Once you are almost out the door and ready to close it, he yells out: "Love you, Daddy. Love you, Mommy." It melts us each and every time!!

The words from Jack as you leave his room....priceless! I hope you have it on video so when he goes off to college, you can replay it! ha! :-) Glad you got some snow and glad for your pregnant self that Jack didn't love the snow and beg to be out there all day!

Snow days are so much fun... from inside the house where it is all warm and cozy with a warm drink and thick blanket and a good movie (I sat through How To Eat Fried Worms three times... THREE times I tell you!) or book.
LOVE Jack's bed time ritual, he's such a cutie!
