An Almost Snowless Snow Day

Last night about 9 o'clock I got a phone call saying they had decided to cancel school for Wednesday to prepare for THE BIG SNOW STORM that was suppose to be coming.  Fine by us!!!  I let the kids sleep in and acted like nothing was out of the ordinary until my number child (Carter) looked at the clock.  It was then he realized something was not right - even though he had already gotten dressed AND done 3 of his morning jobs for the day!!!!  I, then, informed them there was no school for the day.  It did not take him long to get out of his school clothes and back into the pajamas.  

The rest of the day we waited for the snow . . . .

We played some Just Dance  . . . .
(but thought I had put enough of those pics up on here)

We waited for the snow . . . .

We watched a movie . . . .

We waited for the snow . . . .

LB made some brownies . . . .
(and we all helped clean the cooking tools!)

Carter walked the dog . . . .

By the time he got dressed because it was extremely cold - 
even though nothing was falling from the sky . . . .

The snow had begun to fall - slowly!
Can't you tell he is THRILLED to be going out in it!

By the time Carter finished walking "the circle" . . . .
the snow was falling pretty nicely . . . .

He did not seem to mind walking too much at this point!

and an hour later . . . .

We had a nice snow!

Three hours later . . . 
It is STILL snowing . . . .
Damon has gone to work the late shift at work . . . .
The kids and I are going to have our own devotional at home tonight
because the van is in the shop, and 
then we are going to snuggle together and cheer on our 
DUKE BLUE DEVILS
as they take on UNC tonight.

I would say it has been a good day and we are looking forward to a REAL
snow day tomorrow!!!

Lovely pictures and great memories. We waited for snow too but never got any! Had a late start for school this morning. Just SO cold. Thanks for coming by! We (me) are a little conflicted about yelling for the Aggie's too having yelled for Colt for all those years and now for Case. I guess I will just have to love em all. :) Blessings on your day! Amy
