We don't sleep with our phones in our bedroom but last night was an exception. With the thought there might be a snow day I needed to hear the call from school. Not having to turn on the tv and getting a recording and a text is a genius idea!! I love it!! I have to be honest...I wasn't super excited in the beginning for this snow day. I was ready for 3 hours to get stuff done around the house and a few errands. Since Christmas vacation, then actual vacation, then Wyatt being sick...I haven't had a moment alone in a while. (Totally not complaining but phew...I was really ready to knock a few chores out, moving on...)
I quickly got over it because I don't remember one snow day growing up my mom didn't LOVE!! I want my kids to remember them just like I did...I put a smile on my face and began to plan the day!
We already had plans to meet friends for lunch so we moved that up in the day since there was no school!! The famous Chick fil a play date ladies!!! It's been a while since we got to hang out so it was much needed! I didn't know how long it would take us to get there due to the weather so we left really early. (As much as I love snow, I HATE driving in it!) We arrived a little early so I checked my phone while the kids played a bit. During the normal scroll through Instagram I saw Fixer Upper, Chip and JoAnna Gaines wrote a book!! We love them and LOVE their show so much. I was sporting my Magnolia t-shirt so it totally required a selfie right!?!?!?!?v
Love all these littles (and their mamas) and our time together!!!
Wyatt and Sloane have been asking to sled for a while now. They had never been "real" sledding. We didn't even own a sled. I loved sledding as a kid so today we stopped by Target and bought the LAST 2 sleds, praise the Lord there was 1 green and 1 pink- phew! After lunch we ran back home and bundled up. A friend suggested a school nearby that has a big hill they go to to sled...we don't have any real sledding hills around us.
I didn't know what hill she was talking about until I pulled up...no one has this kind of "real" hill in their back yard...this was like the real thing! LOL! To say we had a blast would be a total understatement!!!
Wyatt was a little nervous in the beginning but by the end was running and going downhill on his belly...SO MUCH FUN!!! A few things he said while sledding "this is epic," and "this is why I love Winter!" ;)
Obviously, Sis was fearless...
We stayed for a LONG time before getting back in the car to go home. Thankfully we stripped down to the last layer of clothes that was still dry for the ride home. We stopped by Daddy's office to tell him about our fun afternoon then went home!
What snow day is completed without hot chocolate, marshmallows, and whip cream?!?!? We got in our comfy clothes and enjoyed our hot chocolate together. They want to take Mark back in the morning since Thursday is a "late day." We shall see....;)
Cheers to making memories and enjoying snow days!!!!
