Sweethearts, Snow, and Sickness

Last Saturday night Robby and I went out to dinner with some of our fun neighbors.  Kind of for Valentine's Day, but more so just to be able to go to dinner with them.  We had fun and it was great to have an excuse to get dressed up and go out with my sweetheart on Valentine's.

While we were at dinner we got a text from the school system that schools were closed on Monday because they were predicting snow. I was so excited about our long weekend and the kids were so excited about the possibility of snow.

We pulled out all the chalkboard message, the kids PJ's were worn inside out and we flushed ice cubes down the potty.  Unfortunately though, all we got on Monday was rain.  Then on Monday night school was cancelled for Tuesday because there were predictions of ice roads due to the freezing temperatures and all of the rain.  We were fine on Tuesday and most areas right around us were OK, too.  Many other counties had tons of people without power, so I was very thankful to have another day off and to have power (even though our heat upstairs is out AGAIN!).

Today the girls were back at school and go figure, that is when it starts snowing.  Ha!  It didn't stick, but it was still fun to see.  I knew the kids would be going crazy at school.  Harper's class went outside with black construction paper to catch snowflakes and Handley was in the lunchroom at the time and said kids were yelling and cheering and so happy to see snow.  :-)  There were still a few flurries flying around when they got off the bus this afternoon, but it didn't last beyond that.

We might see some more snow this weekend though, so we're keeping our fingers crossed.  We want one big snow so the kids can play in it and have fun, and then we will be ready for spring.

My poor little Hudson woke up last night with the stomach bug, again.  He just can't seem to catch a break, which is another reason I'll be happy for warmer weather so all of this sickness will go away.  He was fine most of the day today, but just couldn't do anything but lay around on the couch and watch movies. When he wasn't watching movies he was sleeping.

I'm hoping he wakes up tomorrow feeling better!  He was so excited about a playdate with his "best buddy" from school tomorrow that I had to cancel and I know he's going to be heartbroken when he finds out we had to reschedule.  :-(
