What a crazy surprise! We took the boys to ride the Polar Express, and woke up the next morning to the beginning of a blizzard. We had quite an adventure driving home--turning a two hour trip into a 6 hour trip, but we managed to make it before the interstates were closed down. The snow was beautiful, and the boys were wishing they could be outside playing in it instead of watching it from the car windows.
As soon as the boys woke up Saturday, they hurried outside to build the first snowman of the season, and then we snuggled in (happy to be home) with some hot chocolate and snow books--The Snowy Day (Keats,) Snowballs (Ehlert,) Snow (Shulevitz,) and Brave Irene (Steig.)
Today we will happily celebrate the first day of winter--wishing for more snow to come!
