This morning is gray and beautiful and still and quiet. That is except for the Bro who feels the need to yell everything to make sure he is heard. But even Natalie, who usually sings at the top of her lungs in the morning, knew that this morning was for climbing in under the warmth of the down comforter an holding onto to that sleepy feeling a little longer than normal.
I know we just had snow, but there is something about a real "snow day" that brings me joy. that fact that for the first time this season we are forced not to go anywhere. The kids and I will stay in our pajamas for the better part of the day and bake until I have run out of butter, which might give us one batch of cookies, since I am usually borrowing a stick of butter from my neighbor, but today is too snowy to venture across the street. Later we will bundle up and brave the weather for some snowy play and warm back up with hot chocolate with marshmallows and candy canes.
