... Ahhh the peace and the stillness....And then just like that...everyone was awake and overjoyed to have a SNOW DAY!!!
We also managed to go out to lunch and I had a previously scheduled dentist appointment... such busy day for a snow day...
We drank hot chocolate, we sang songs and played games... AND I made homemade loaded potato leek soup for dinner... a great warm-you-up kind of dinner. And this mom, needed a warm-you-up sort of dinner, after our sledding adventure.
All in a snow days work...
