ANATOMY OF A SNOW DAY

so the other day was our first official snow day. i was actually hoping for one....i'm ready for Christmas break, ready for a slower pace, no schedule, late nights, and sleeping in. i must have been feeling ill - ME wanting a snow day....WHAT WAS I THINKING???? i thought i'd give you a picture (or two) of what a snow day looks like at our house.

5:15am - awaken by an automated phone call from jps saying there is a snow day. turn off kid's
alarm clocks

6:00am - ben wakes up, needs changing and bottle

6:30am - ben STILL awake, put ben in bed with me so he doesn't wake everyone else up

7:30am - ben sawing logs, mom awake, andrew WIDE awake

8:00am - mom (tired and somewhat cranky...but determined to have a good day) up and
making monkey bread for the kids for breakfast (as ANY GOOD mom would do for
their children on a snow day.....ya right@!!!)


9:00am - everyone up, begging for a "no-chore-pajama-day"
9:30am - let the movie madness begin!!!


11:00am - pretty quiet.....too quiet.....where's lydia???? oh , lydie!!!!









11:02am - gracie cleaning up lydia's mess..

11:03am - lydia experiencing a time out!!

1:00pm - movie madness done...onto baking and playing wii



1:30pm - kids are getting antsy and cranky...TAKE IT OUTSIDE!



3:00pm - grace on the phone with her best friend planning their trip to the mall....CRAZY!!



4:00pm - witching hour has begun....but still doing ok....mom still has her hair

5:00pm - snow just doesn't stop.....



1st snow day done...all in all.....a pretty good day. we'll see what the next few days hold!
