Snow Days!

I just love snow days! I love being home with the kids, playing in the snow, making hot chocolate and sitting by the fire.  Yesterday was the first snow day of the season and we had so much fun.  Jeff worked from home and the kids played in the snow, well almost all the kids.

Devon, who hates to be cold, decided he needed to relax yesterday because his life is so busy.  So all day he played with his yo-yo and layed around the house.  At one point I said "Aren't you going to play outside?" He said "No, I am being lazy because I never get to do this."  I cna only imagine what he is going to be like when he gets older.  Sorry I couldn't make it into work today because we have to much snow and I need a day to relax.

Jordan invited a friend over and they played outside for part of the time.  Then it was inside for homemade Hot Chocolate, Rock Band, and Apples to Apples.  I think by the end of the day she was ready for bed and feel asleep on the couch at 8:30.  It was great seeing her play in the snow and doing so well, hoping it stays this way.

Jared played with Jordan and her friend for part of the day.  He was really looking for some teenagers to play with but that didn't happen.  As Devon put it "Dude, don't call and ask if they can play, teenagers hang out."  So funny to listen to them talk.  I think Jared had a great day and another snow day for him today.

Devon was very upset that he didn't even get a delay today.  He was really hoping for another snow day, although I knew he wouldn't get it.  I told him to stay home and he was like "No, I'll miss to much work, I have to go."

So today I am here with Jared and Jordan watching TV and sitting by the fire.  In a little while we will get all our snow stuff on and go outside.  I think I am in for a world of hurt because they are going to gang up on me.

Hope you all enjoy your snow days as much as we do.  Get out in the snow and act like a kid again, it is good for the soul.
