Snow Day!

We finally got some snow last night! It's not a ton, but enough to make it look pretty outside! It started after the kids went to bed, and I told Lily if it started snowing while she was sleeping, I would wake her up. I have vivid memories of my mom doing this with me when I was younger! She'd wake us up at probably only 9ish, but to me it felt like the middle of the night! We'd get our snow clothes on and go sledding down our hill! It was so fun! Anyway, I knew I wouldn't take Lily sledding in it last night, I just wanted her to see it. Well, 9:15 rolls around and enough snow had accumulated on the ground. I went into her room and tried whispering to her to wake up because it's snowing. My whispers turned louder and louder. That girl would not wake up! She was moving lots as I was talking to her, but was clearly enjoying her nice warm bed. Sad. I really wanted her to wake up! I guess I should just be thankful that she can sleep through anything right?! So this morning when she woke, I showed her the snow and she was very excited! I told her that I tried waking her, and her reply was "Yah, I was tired so I didn't wake up." You better believe that!

AJ and I got the kids bundled up so he could take them for a quick ride in the backyard on a sled! Jameson's gloves were much to large for his little hands, but they worked! All ready to go for a ride!

Weeeeeee! AJ was pulling them fast!

Lily was a great big sister and held her brother nice and tightly.

It's hard to tell, but Jameson IS smiling!

Hat hair! I had just given him a bath and then we decided to take them outside. So his hair turned from looking cute to a mess! Oh well, I love it! I'm so glad we got to have a little snow to enjoy and play in!

That is so cute that she didn't want to wake up. I wouldn't dream of waking one of my kids because they'd probably never go back to sleep! We had a nice snow day, too. Grant's work was closed. Man, I love Oregon and how everything shuts down with just one little inch of snow.
