First Snow of the Year

Came so much earlier than last year. We made until Boxing Day last year, but this morning Hubby and I were blindsided by the snow. As of 6pm the forecast was for freezing rain, so when I got up for a 4am feeding I was shocked to see the snow. And lots of it.

Hubby took J to school letting him toss a few snowballs and slop through the snow. The teachers even let the kids play outside longer this morning. Hubby thought he was feeling well enough to go to work himself, until he stood at the bus stop for a few minutes. He returned home to bed for most of the day.

I was able to pick J up without Apple, which made his so happy that he was tossing snowballs the entire way home. He went from being forced outside in the snow last year to not being able to keep him in. He had a blast tossing snow at the dogs, who grew weary quickly of that game and ended up tossing the snow at Hubby through the window.The forecast is calling for another 10-20 cm tomorrow, should be another fun day.

Thanks for all your well wishes. We are doing much better today, although not up to par yet. And yes, to answer the question posed by Red Dirt Road, we have more than one bathroom. Not that I am bragging, but we have three in total, so I took one, he took one and Mom kept one clean for her and the kids. And yes, I am thankful for that fact too. Oh so much to be thankful for this day before Thanksgiving.

Our kids are loving the snow too. It took Jack longer to love it but once the younger one sees the older one having fun they catch on a lot sooner.

Looks like you guys will be shoveling lots tomorrow. Glad you are all on the mend.

I'm jealous. I can't wait for the snow. I'm in NM so it will probably be a few weeks yet.
