snow day

What began as an exciting prediction a week ago and led the local news for five days straight has come to pass. We're snowed in! Everything shut down yesterday, including our church, which meant Danny was the Snow Party Planning Committee Chairman for the day. Chica was Co-chairwoman. I stood outside long enough to take pictures.

After playing in the yard, Mr. Chairman asked what I thought about going sledding. I bundled up for real and threw some plastic storage bin lids in the backseat of the car. Danny knew of a great hill in another neighborhood. By the time we made it to the hill, Chica was over being stuck in her car seat with all the layers of clothing and I was a tad cranky.

But Mr. Chairman knew his audience. The hill was worth the tedious car ride. A nice man had pity on our lid and let us use his sled. (If you click on any of these pictures, you should be able to see them bigger. Some of her expressions are priceless!)

It was one of the best times we've had in a while. And even though it probably won't snow again until next year, I'm putting in a request with the Snow Chairman that we forgo playing in the yard and sled all morning instead.
For the sake of reminiscing:
