Wordless Wednesday: Snow Day Fun

One of the benefits of maternity leave is being able to spend extra time with my other kids, even if that time is bleary eyed and sleep deprived. Today, is one of those days that I was extra grateful.  At 5:15 AM this morning, just as I was going to sleep because the new baby isn't too good at reading a clock just yet, I got a text message from my son's school saying that school was cancelled. The text lacked any explanation. In my sleep deprived state, I mistakenly believed that I had neglected to keep track of his calendar.
Then, 45 minutes later, because the gods like to mock me, our home phone rang informing me that our daughter's school was also cancelled because of "inclement weather". Although it was beyond annoying to be woken up, I was happy to know the reason school had been cancelled.

The kids and I spent the day, most of the day relaxing and enjoying one another. Then, I walked our daughter to a friend's house for a play date. As you can tell from the photos, she loved it! I am glad that I was there to experience her joy. And I will cherish these memories forever...
