Finally, A Snow Day!

Believe it or not, the city schools had a snow day today...When I saw it on the news, I was so excited...and thought the kids would be too...I went in and told Ian first, because his alarm was going off....I told him to just go back to bed because school was canceled...He didn't believe me, and then when he did-he told me he would have rather went to school (today he was having a field trip) Oh well, so much for the excitement of a snow day...Then he was up by 7, because he is so used to getting up early...no sleeping in for him...I didn't wake Macey or Cade...but Cade wandered into the den, about 20 minutes after Ian...Macey did sleep until 8:30...so at least one of my kids enjoyed sleeping in...=) The kids could NOT wait to get outside and play...I made them wait a little bit, because it was unbelievalby cold outside!!!! When they finally got outside-they were wide open!!! No snowmen for them...all they could do was go flying down the hill...over and over and over and over and over...you get the picture.....Here are some of my favorite pics that I took today....Our house....so pretty with snow all over the roof...even if it was just a couple of inches..... Cade wore gloves that were not waterproof...so it was just a few minutes and his hands were freezing..and he was ready for ME to go back in and find his waterproof ones... Macey posing for me....
Cade cheesing....couldn't get Ian to pose for me...but got a few action shots of him..
Macey and Cade getting ready to sled down the hill...Whoo-Hoo! Ian and Macey rode down together...Our hill is very steep...so this picture was taken with my zoom at the bottom of the hill...I had to almost jump out of the way a couple of times...to keep from getting ran over!!! Macey screamed all the way down!!!


Ian trying some "snowboarding"...He made it almost all the way down the hill...more than once...He said he is ready to hit the slopes!
Here he is again...This time on his stomach....snow was flying everywhere!This face is priceless!!! Cracks me up...He and Macey had a blast riding together....Ian was trying to make a serious turn...and Mace was just along for the ride...Cade wasn't too far behind them...They were cracking me up.....Cade on his own...Doesn't go near as fast as he does with someone else..... The kids playing wtih Oreo...changed it to some black and white action...love this shot...
Miss Oreo...enjoyed playing in the snow with the kids....She is such a good dog...They loved playing with her today... Cade and Ian were sledding and wiped out...and Cade's boot went flying...We were all laughing our heads off over this one...Had to get a photo of it...They are crazy! After playing, the kids were starving...so we came in and they ate sandwiches...We are having my South Beach Version of Taco Soup tonight for dinner...It is in the crockpot right now as we speak...and it sure smells yummy....I even made some South Beach peanut butter cookies....No salmonella peanut butter was used in the making of these cookies...=) They are yummy! We have had a good day...Playing outside, cooking, watching movies, putting up laundry(yes-we got that done prior to all the playing!) and now we are waiting on James to get home from work...He has to work over tonight....hopefully it won't be too long...
It is back to work tonight for me..Yuck..After a day like today, I remember how very much I would love to stay home ALL the time with my kids....Maybe one day...Going to get off of here, and watch Space Chimps...with these little guys...Have a great rest of the week...God Bless.

Kids up here would be thrilled if that's all the snow it took to get a snow day around here! They look like they are having a great time out there.How did the soup turn out, I am always looking for new crockpot recipes that people have tried and liked.
