Snow Day

Snow Day

They were calling for a little snow in our area, but the forecast looked like most of it would miss us. In fact, the night before, I told Tyler’s cousin if they got snow at their house, we would drive over so Remi could play in it!

So imagine my surprise when Saturday morning, the sound of sleet on our windows let up and got quiet.  I ran to the kitchen window and GIANT snowflakes were falling fast.

It quickly accumulated. I wasn’t sure how long it would last, so I bundled Remi up before breakfast to go outside. She wasn’t impressed, but she kept wanting to go outside every 20-30 minutes. We don’t get much snow, so I happily took her outside time and time again to look at it.

She finally agreed it wasn’t all bad.

A snow day weekend was AWESOME.  We didn’t have any plans, but having it be a mandatory snow day meant we just played and said yes to everything.  Hot dog for breakfast? Ok! Painting?  YES.  Movies, playing, an hour long bath, spaghetti for dinner. We did it all.

After nap, we bundled up and went out to really play.  It was pretty frigid and windy, so it wasn’t her favorite thing. But we finally got to use her sled in the snow (it’s only been pulled around the yard on the grass!)

She mostly wanted to jump on her trampoline. Daddy had to brush the snow/ice off with a broom, but then she happily jumped!

I also had bought these snowball makers.  The snow was really too dry to pack, but we had fun digging in the snow with the snowball maker.

And on Sunday, the road was still a little icy, so we stayed home from church.  She and I made banana bread together. It was a sweet time of her scooping ingredients and counting things like eggs and scoops.  She kept playing with the flour long after I mixed it up and put it in the oven. But man, it was yummy!

We had another great day at home together, and then the snow melted as fast as it came down.  It was mostly all gone by Monday.
