Happy Snow Day to you! Our schools were closed today and I enjoyed sitting by the fire - didn't get out of PJs until 3! The kids have a late start tomorrow - roads will freeze over tonight. Have a happy time reading your snow books and enjoying the hot cocoa!

Love to you all.

Wish you could come play in the snow with us :D We've still got an inch or so from the weekend, and it looks like more is coming. I can see it snowing across the lake.

The boys are ecstatic!
