Snow Day,

And then....suddenly....it was deep winter again.

This morning when the curtains were drawn open, there were fat flakes floating down and the world was hushed and chilly white. A came stomping in from his morning foray to the gym....knocking the snow off his shoes on his way, his cheeks were all pink and he had flakes in his mustache. Ru had his nose pressed against the glass as soon as he was out of bed, maybe even before his eyes were properly open. The boy really loves snow.

So, this morning we hunted up the mittens and snow boots, we made hot cocoa, we retrieved our snow shovel (per Ru's request) and there was a tumble of short boys, spilled out onto the back deck. Off to explore!

Cute boys in cute hats and pretty white, indoors and out.

Who says you can't have snow-days when you don't have school to announce them?



  1. So cute!!!! I need a snow family in my front yard, do the boys want to come and build one!

  2. I'm sure they'd adore building snowmen in your yard! We'll be right up.
