Be careful what you wish for

Wednesday we all woke up to snow. It was all powdery and looked like someone had thrown glitter everywhere. It was so pretty. Mike slept in for a bit and then got up to shovel and left for work. After breakfast, I found out that schools were closed (which happens here anytime we have even a tiny bit of snow) which meant that Kathryn and Devon would be home. I called up my mom and we all decided to go sledding. I had snow stuff for Cameryn, but nothing for Luke. So I decided to just get him dressed in regular clothes and then over top of that I put on his Bee halloween costume which shockingly still fit him. He wasn't really going to play in the snow so he didn't need anything waterproof, just really warm. For his head, I had a little frog hat that one of Mike's Aunt's had given him for Christmas. He looked so cute!!
Anyways, we had an okay time. We had to leave the first place we tried to sled at because we weren't really supposed to be there. Too bad it's the best hill around here though. It's in the stadium at my old high school so we had to climb over a fence to get in there. Luke wasn't too happy anyways so we went back to my mom's and Cameryn slid down the tiny hill next to my mom's house a few times and made snow angels with Kathryn, Devon and their friend Christine. I was only able to take a few quick pictures because Luke by that time was so tired and hungry. So I went into my mom's to feed him and put him down for a nap and my mom took the rest of the kids back to Christine's house and they had hot chocolate and some lunch over there. They got back to the house at around 4:00 and I left to go home.
Cameryn had so much fun and was so busy that she feel asleep almost right away in the car. I brought her into the house, took off her shoes, hat and coat and she was STILL asleep. That is one busy girl.

It was a really fun day. Too bad almost all the snow was gone by the end of the day already. Oh well, we're supposed to get more but we'll just have to wait and see. I just thought it was really funny that one night I'm complaining about no snow and the very next morning... there it is!! Maybe I should complain more often.

Yes, you should definitely complain more often! What a great day!

Snow days are the best! I'm a bit jealous, we usually get tons of snow, but not this year. Hey, call me I need to talk to you.
