I love snow days because I don't have to get up and ready and out of the house to get the kids to school, but after that wears off, I realize that I have all the kids, all day! As you might expect they were whining to go out as soon as they knew what was going on. I decided to just jump into it rather than whine myself. I got all the layers they needed, hats, gloves, boots, etc. and let them out. They are so funny to watch.

Taste the snow on the car - check.
Taste the snow on the driveway - check.
Make a snow angel on the driveway - check.
Slip and fall - check.
