Snow Day!!!

Today was our first day of real snow for this winter season. We woke up this morning to a beautiful winter wonderland. We enjoyed a cozy morning inside as we watched the huge snow flakes float by. To pass the time, we snuggled on the couch, watched our favorite movie (at the moment Robin Hood) and munched on popcorn while signing all of our favorite Robin Hood songs. After enjoying a cozy morning inside we decided to bundle up and venture outside for some fun in the snow.

Joshua Stephen loved the snow and he was so sad when it was time to come inside. (This is a very different response from last year when he hated the snow and all of the many layers of clothes he was required to wear before walking out the door.) This year Joshua Stephen enjoyed making snow balls and playing in the snow with the older boys and his Dad. I think a snow ball fight might have even broken out between Daddy and some of the boys- but I am not saying who won. Caleb bared with us through our outing, though he didn't adopt our excitement and zeal. Instead the cold froze his cute little chubby cheeks in place and he wore the same solemn expression on his face until we returned inside and his cheeks were thoroughly thawed.

All in all, it was a fun day! Days like these remind me of why I love being a Mom so much. It was refreshing to just take a day and have fun with my boys. I enjoyed getting to snuggle with them and just give them my undivided attention. It was so fun to see their excitement and to just enjoy being with them. They are so precious to me and they are such a gift from God!
