Arctic Blast 08 Update

Yes, that is the official name of the weather this week--Arctic Blast...really? The news was on all morning covering the snow...school closures everywhere, traffic reports, accidents, pictures people have sent in of the snow. It is funny to me how the world stops here when there is snow but I guess we are just not used to it and don't have the equipment to deal with it like places that typically have snow do...so I will keep my mocking to a minimum:)
So, it has officially been a snow day today. Preschool canceled, church office closed and Tyson came home early. It was the perfect day for staying in sweats (wait, I do that anyway), making scones and enjoying a latte. As soon as I began walking up the stairs with Kai this morning he started saying "snow, snow"...before he could see outside. So, I decided to give it another try...he again wasn't diggin it...this was his face most of the time and he refused to move his feet.

But, when Daddy came home this afternoon he tried it again and had more fun...it is probably that Daddy is more fun and I am totally okay with that:) He especially liked the eating of the snow...


And we eventually even got some smiles...that's the boy I know:)

Yes a snow day! Jeremy took it off too. I love the socks(?) on Kai's hands. He is a cutie in the snow.

Tracy said...

Yes, socks;) I almost bought him a pair of mittens the other day but when I tried them on him he would not keep them on so I passed...so then the snow came out and socks was the best I could do...ha!
