We got snow this week! I excitedly showed Anna Ruth the snow outside and immediately got her impressed/excited reaction of "Oh, Why!" . This is Anna's version of "Oh, wow!" and is one of the cutest things I've ever heard in my life. I *may* even look for opportunities to trick her little mind into saying it. :)
For a good part of the morning we enjoyed the snow falling from the comfort and warmth of the house.
Once this bright-eyed beauty went down for a nap (after being strapped to her mama for two hours) Anna Ruth and I put on our snow gear and trekked outside for some snow day fun.
As a SAHM (stay-at-home-mom) either every day's a "snow day" or none are. It's one or the other. I remember my teaching days when a snow day meant movies, sleeping, and a general feeling of doing nothing. Relaxation galore. Those days are long gone. Although an excuse to hibernate for a day or two occasionally sounds nice-I'll take working 365 days a year as a mama now any 'ol day. My point-your attitude either determines a party, or a pity-party.
Anna Ruth wore Brett's mismatched gym socks on her hands as mittens and found several good digging sticks in the yard. She was in snow heaven.
