Snow Day and Grandkids...

"One of the very best reasons for having children is to be reminded of the incomparable joys of a snow day." -Susan Orlean

It started snowing Friday afternoon, January 6.   One twin was taking a nap, while the other, who rarely naps, was wide awake lying in bed.  When he saw it was snowing from his window, he jumped up yelling at the top of his lungs, announcing that it was snowing out.  He wanted to go outside even though there was barely any snow on the ground.  I got him bundled up and out he went.  Oh the joy!

Yeah for snow!

The snow came down in large flakes and very hard...

 It was snowed on and off all that afternoon and night.  The next morning we had a nice 8" blanket of snow.  The boys wanted to go out the minute they woke.  Since it was only 7° outside, we had them wait until it was a blazing 22°- the high expected for the day.  It must have taken us an hour to get them all bundled up in multiple layers of clothing and coats.  Out they went oblivious to the cold, and thrilled to be out in all that snow.  Truly a delight for them, and for us to behold.

Winter wonderland...my favorite little tree...

Throwing snow since he could not make a snowball...

After a time of play in the snow, and sledding down the street, nice hot baths warmed the boys nicely.   They did their next favorite activity...watching a show on the iPad.  It was a wonderful day.

Stay warm!
