Snow Day...

Thank GOD for Grandma Debbie. What would I do without her?!?! Here I am sitting in my nice, warm, cozy house drinking my morning (finally) cup of coffee and she is outside with the bundled up* girls...pulling them around on a sled and shoveling snow.

I hate the cold. Hate it. And I love my girls and all but I just draw the line there. The few minutes I was out there was enough for me. School was called off today. We got 4 inches. Probably does seem like much in other parts of the country (I know because I use to live in Connecticut).

So I am very grateful that Grandma Debbie was here because the girls had a blast (Charlie is sleeping) and I captured some beautiful pictures.










* Thanks Erin for leaving all your boy's snow gear behind when you moved to San Deigo!!! The snow suit fit Sophie perfectly and both the girls were able to fit into a pair of boots.

So cute! I'm the same way...I hate snow and cold! I would take Julia out when she was my only child but with both of them...forget it!

We got a lot of snow today...maybe 5 or 6 inches? It's hard to tell. That's a lot for us. It's been nice to stay home and not have to go to therapy, school, etc. Enjoy your day!

Elaine,
These are some of the cutest pictures ever. Forget the waterpark, this weekend you need to take these girls where there is snow. Looks like they had a blast.

Sweet. So I'm jealous. Here I am in Upstate NY and we have got nothing for snow. Oh sure, we got about a 1/2 inch yesterday, but that's it!!! *sigh* What is a snow loving creature like myself gonna do?? Course back in my hometown of Pittsburgh, they have 2+ feet of it and it's still coming down.

If I lived closer to ya Elaine, I'd gladly come and take your kids out to play for you. I love playing in the snow!!

And I must say, for having 4 inches, your street is awfully clear! Our streets don't look that good after an inch of snow!
