Snow Much Drama

Finally, some normalcy starts to creep back into our lives after our winter vacation and then it has to go and snow on us. Its my fault that I wasn't prepared, but I was really thinking (wishfully thinking I suppose) that it would just be a light dusting and all would be good but no. It snowed enough to keep us home for two days!

Mondays are usually our stay-at-home-and-chill day BUT something about not being able to go anywhere really makes you WANT to go somewhere and you start to think about all the things you need or should have gotten at the store over the weekend. And then Tuesday, you can't go anywhere either and you haven't left the house and your kids start fighting more than usual and the walls are quickly starting to close in....

So you get the title now huh? Honestly, before mobile Harry, I loved to be at home and a snow day wouldn't bother me ONE BIT. But Harry is so busy and a tad exhausting and it helps to break up the day to just get out of the house for a little bit. Even if its just a car ride to the post office or to Sonic or whatever. Even if we don't get out of the car, just getting out of the HOUSE does wonders. The two snow days we had to endure were enough for me for a long time! Ha!

So yea, I've mentioned over and over how I am not a cold-weather person. I hate it, honestly. I could easily live somewhere where it didn't get below 60° and wouldn't miss snow one bit. I've told Aaron if he could find a job somewhere where its warm weather year round I wouldn't think twice about moving. I would move yesterday.

Anyway, I was hoping that on Monday Aaron would be able to get off work early to take the kids out to play but he ended up having to work his normal day and the kids really wanted to go outside. Elle wanted to build a snowman and Harry just needed a change of scenery, so I bundled us all up and we headed out...

One might think, after seeing these pictures that we enjoyed our snow fun :). Not so much! Harry fell face first in the snow as soon as we stepped outside and that just ruined it for him and then Elle got snow inside of her mitten and she was ruined too. That happened in about 3 minutes and we were back inside. Needless to say, my kids don't enjoy the snow about as much as I do.


I wouldn't be sad in the least bit if we didn't see anymore snow this year. Keeping my fingers crossed. But this snow was really pretty and it made for some cute pictures!
