Snow Day!

Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, we received so much snow that they canceled school yesterday.  I suppose being in a "blizzard warning" might have had something to do with the cancellation of school as well.  Chris was lucky too and his workplace cancelled the rest of the day, and he was home about 10:45.  So, while Casey was taking his morning nap (and before the cold started to get worse), I took the two kiddos outside to enjoy the snow.  I stayed on the front porch most of the time, except for a few times when Grahm couldn't get out of the snow and I had to help get him unstuck.  After about 30 minutes, my legs were starting to go numb, and I headed inside and watched from the front door.  When Chris came home, Belle and Grahm reluctantly came inside so he could snowblow the driveway.  That afternoon, we made some sugar cookies.  I finally found a recipe that actually makes soft sugar cookies and that doesn't need sour cream.  They turned out surprisingly good!  Everything was back to normal today though as we took Belle to school this morning and have spent most of the day playing downstairs.
