Where’s that Early Spring I Was Promised?

We had yet another cold and snowy day.  The weather forecast was predicting anywhere from 4 to 14 inches of snow, so our office closed 3 hours earlier than usual.  I actually got to come home at about 1 pm!  That’s the only thing that I like about snowy weather – I am still a tropical soul.  😉

Isaac’s school let out 2 hours early, and will be closed tomorrow.  All 3 boys went outside for a bit.

Ben wasn’t too impressed with the cold white stuff falling from the sky. (Good boy!)  We took him back inside promptly.

Jonny seemed enthusiastic at first, but lasted all of 5 minutes (a very short time considering that it takes 10-15 minutes to get him into his snowsuit, boots, coat, etc).  He begged to come back inside, saying, “I need some hot chocolate!”  (Good boy!)

Isaac is so far our only real snow-lover.  He played outside, and even had a go at clearing the sidewalk with his little snow shovel.  For some reason, we couldn’t find his sled, but he slid down the hill in front of our house without one.

Our office is opening at noon tomorrow, but that doesn’t affect me since I was scheduled to start at noon anyway. 

Mark actually decided that we would have our special Valentine’s Day dinner tonight instead of tomorrow, so he’s downstairs cooking up a storm.  Our plan is to put the boys to bed and enjoy our food in relative peace and quiet.  We’ll see how that goes!

February 14 update: Dinner last night was a smashing success, but I will let Mark tell all about it on his website (hopefully he’ll have a chance to post today).  He definitely did NOT ruin dinner last night, and I think it makes up for Saturday’s incident!  In other news, our office is closed all day today because of ice storms.  The bad news is that Ben seems to be sick again.  He slept fitfully all night, and Mark and I took turns sitting up with him.  Thank goodness I don’t have to work today.  He did get a Synagis shot yesterday; maybe this was just a reaction to that.  I hope that’s all it was.

    Snow, then ice, then more snow. That will be fun to shovel, but it will be even more interesting to make the snowman the boys are clamoring for.

    Don’t bother with the snowman…Just tried. You’ll need an icepick if you want to go for it. Kids were going to go ahead and start throwing “snowballs” anyway but I advised against it. Roads are too bad to take a trip to the ER…That “snow” is rock hard! Got stuck in our driveway twice and then figured we’d better hunker in till it passes. It’s a mess for sure.
