Snow Day

While we were in VA, the weather men were calling for 3-5 inches of snow!!! We were all so excited. Because Virginians don't know how to drive in snow, school was even called off for the day. We woke up excited to see how much had fallen over night...but nothing was there! I ran out to the store for some milk and some hot chocolate mix for the kids so that they could warm up after playing in the snow. The man at the grocery store told me that the storm had stalled out and was not going to hit until lunch time.
So we waited.
And waited.
And even prayed for snow (at least Isabelle did...)
Until the blue skies appeared and we decided we may as well forget about it. Turns out the whole storm when south and we never saw so much as a flurry.
But the kids decided to make the most of all the winter gear that Debbie had pulled out for them and they bundled up to jump on the trampoline!
Here is Ian...with an extra hat covering his face because he thought his face was going to freeze!
Isabelle loved the pink ear muffs that we found for her.
The whole crew had a great time.
They came inside periodically to warm up, but they always ended up back outside!

That night, when I was tucking the kids in, I had a really funny conversation with Isabelle. It went a little something like this:
Isabelle: I think those weather men lied to us.
Kimberlee: I don't think they lied to us, but maybe they were playing a trick.
Isabelle: That was a mean trick. Those guys are Dum-dums!
So much for a snow day! But at least we got an extra day with our friends!
