Snow Day!!!

We had a chance of snow the other night. Jadyn's teacher told her students to have their family members turn their pajamas inside out and it would snow. So, that's what we did...and IT WORKED!!!Funny thing is, it didn't even snow much. Just a couple of inches this time. School got cancelled anyway. They're kinda wimpy around here if you ask me. But, it's always fun to have a snow day with the kids. I made them blueberry pancakes and eggs for breakfast. Later that day, we met some of our favorite friends for lunch at CiCi's pizza. I really hate CiCi's pizza, but it's a good place to have a bunch of kids run around while the moms talk. It was fun. The kids played in the snow while I was making breakfast. We really aren't equipped for the snow since it only snows once a year here. Regan could only stand it for about 2 minutes. That's progress though. The older ones played for about 45 minutes, but then got too cold. At least they got to have a snow ball fight and have some fun in it before it melted.
It's great having to only deal with snow once a year! It's fun to play in, fun to look at while it's fresh...but such a mess!

I have to snicker at the amount of snow on your ground for your snow day! I can still see the grass!! :) Connor's never had a snow day yet.

Glad you all had a fun time!

One snow day a year is probably all I could take too. I hate being wet and cold! We had a dusty day once.... and then there was that time that we had the hot day I was telling Brennan about. All lies but it really would be about the same as your "snow day" if they did do it! Looks like the kids had fun though. I love having a day off with the kids!

Haha, I remember those "snow days" in Oklahoma. It was kind of nice to be in a place where people can't function with it on the ground. Made for some nice relaxing days off.

Looks like they had a great time. In New Mexico we would get a couple of snow days a year. It was fun to watch it from the inside out but the kids loved playing in it. It usually melted by noon though. Too cold for me. Glad to be back in sunny AZ! Hope your well.

I miss those snow days. We had them out in Maryland and we thought it was so funny how the whole city shut down because of a little snow.

sounds fun. I would love to have snow only once a year. We had lots this year. I am so ready for winter to be over.
