Last Friday was our first big snow fall for the year. Yes, on January 20th! We have been spoiled this Winter, and have had very little, to no snow. I do like to have a White Christmas, but since we didn't get that, I would be fine with no snow. Ha! Ok, I do think it is very pretty, and I love the different seasons that we go through. However, I do not like driving in it, or taking our little Wee Lad out in the below freezing temps. But, I think Winter is here to stay for the next few months, so I will just be thankful that we haven't been dealing with this since November.
We got about 8 inches of snow, and Carson was in love! He got up Friday morning, and was in awe as he stared out the window, yelling "no, no, no!!" (Snow)
We all had our own little "snow day", and hung out most of the day. Carl tried to get some sleep, as he had to work on Friday night, and Carson and I baked cookies, played, and watched "moobies." (movies)
I have this rock-star recipe for the chocolate chip cookies that we made. I am going to post it soon. They are always a huge hit, and don't last long! Carson loves to lick the beaters, and help me stir. He is quite the big helper these days. He also loves to look at the cookies while they bake in the oven. I love to watch him crouch down, and look through the window to see the cookies bake.....it makes me laugh every time!
Carson also loved to watch Carl out the window. Carl headed out later that afternoon to snow blow our driveway, and Carson didn't move from the couch/window until he was done! He continuously pointed out the window saying "daddy!" "no!" (snow)
What a wonderful snow day we had! The temps are supposed to be well above normal this week, and possibly be in the mid 40s for a few days. I am excited, and not opposed one bit!
