A Snow Day!

I'm still here! I've tried to blog about three times but haven't had the time or the pictures. I also haven't even been entering very many case you wondered if that was the cause of my silence. :) It's just been a crazy week.

Today we woke up to 10.5 inches of snow!!!

After pretty much never believing the weather people this year, they were actually right. :) It's beautiful and it meant that we had Andrew home all day - yes, he worked some but still, he was here and we had lunch together. It was so nice! We ventured out this evening to my parents (10 min. away) to take the boys sledding and invited ourselves for dinner, too. :) I don't think they minded - I brought cookies and salad. I managed to get us stuck in snow on the way there - no sliding, just too much snow not cleared off the road. Thankfully, some good samaritans stopped and helped us get unstuck! I love it when people are kind!

The boys enjoyed the sledding! I just took pictures and Titus stayed in (we are working hard to keep him healthy!). My parents have a great hill in the backyard.

Snow days always make me want to bake! So, I made Loaded Chocolate Chip Cookies, Iced Sugar Cookies (the boys request - they helped), and biscuits. We had homemade chicken noodle soup with the biscuits for lunch - I don't know why I don't make it more often!

Tomorrow I head to work - one of my co-workers broke her ankle which necessitated surgery and she will be off work for 3-4 weeks. I'm going to be tripling my hours temporarily and working 3 mornings a week (while the boys are at school). It will be different but the extra income will be helpful, they are being super flexible so I can still pick the boys up at school, and it's only for a few weeks. Andrew is able to drop them off and family members will watch Ty for a few hours.

So that's what's going on around here!

Oh, girl, you are going to be SO BUSY working those extra hours!! At least it's only for a short time, and at a time when the big boys are already away, AND family gets some much needed "Titus time" =). I'm sure they don't mind! We ventured out too - to Mom and Dad's for lunch. (does across the street count?) It was a fun snow day afterall!
