Fabulous Friday: Snow Day!!!

It was supposed to start snowing last night but at 6:00 AM this morning there wasn't a flake to be seen. Resigned to my fate, I was sure school would be open, but to my surprise the website said closed. I had to read it three times to make sure I wasn't still sleeping. Big B got up and made breakfast and then we went back to bed.

It was disappointing that there wasn't any snow but I was glad I didn't have to go to work. Sleeping late is such a luxury. When I got up at 10:30 and looked out the window, joy of joys, the snow had arrived.

I threw on my boots and coat, rounded up the dogs, and headed outside.

B's patrol car wasn't going anywhere without a defrost.

The Rapunzel view of the back yard from the deck.

The irises and daffodils had just started to come up.

Wasabi says, "Put that stupid camera down and make me some snowballs!"

Mommy's snowballs weren't very good, so Big B came out to help.

"Hurry up!"

"Must destroy the snow!"
B decided he needed to put on some gloves. Gerrard is new to the snowball game and didn't really get Sabi's fascination with them. (Our neighbors just built a new shed which is why there's so much junk over there. It doesn't usually look like that.)

Kill the snowball!
It's a little hard to see but she has a giant snowball at my feet that she is happily smashing. Gard's starting to get the idea. Poor B had to go to work later (hopefully it will be a slow night), but we all had fun playing in the snow together.

Oh! It's just like Narnia!

Well, actually, you could have done with a White Witch and a lamp post, but you know what I mean!
