Well the weatherman was right and the kids' dreams came true with the first snow day of the year. We received calls from robots early this morning announcing the good news.
Today would have been the last day before Winter Break so it would have been mostly parties and whatnot at school--probably little to no work--but they were thrilled nonetheless.
Andy and Teddy got very industrious and decided to shovel our entire driveway.
And they did an amazing job! As a "reward" they wanted to go to a shopping mall--so we slip-slided over to one and spent the afternoon getting a little extra shopping in. The older boys were cute because they brought their own money and bought presents for everyone in the family and, when we got home, wrapped them.
I made an impulse buy and got Don a fancy-schmancy pillow from Brookstone that is supposed to prevent snoring. It seemed like a good idea at the time--but I hope he's not insulted! It's more of a gift for myself I guess--if it works that is!
Yikes--five more days until Christmas! Are you ready? I'm feeling pretty good, but there are a few gift gaps I need to fill in. I'd like to finish up this weekend and glide on into next week without any frantic last-minute trips to the mall. We'll see!
