We woke up to a winter wonderland on Thursday morning. 8+ inches of snow is just beautiful! Matt had to head into work. We were a little worried about him getting there but he made it just fine. The kids and I enjoyed a special snow day breakfast of oatmeal cookies and hot chocolate.
My dad and I took a walk around the lake. It was gorgeous! Loved getting to spend some time with my dad!

Well, the forecasts were right - it snowed on Wednesday. And not just a little - alot. Like 8.5 inches! That is the 4th most snow in Huntsville history. Crazy!!! It started snowing around 2:30 and it was snowed hard and fast. We went out to play in it for a couple of hours while it was snowing hard!
These guys built this big snowman all by themselves! It was awesome! Took all the snow we had at the time in the yard but don't worry it was quickly filled back up!

So I guess Tuesday is becoming my day for random posts. Here is what I have for today...
Ben finished up his reading fair project on Prince Caspian over the weekend. He did an awesome job on his first really big project. It looks great and he wrote a great summary. We will get to go see all the reading projects next week.

We have been stuck in this horrible winter weather pattern. Just about every other day there is rain, sleet, freezing rain or snow (or all 4). In the past 7 days the kids have only gone 1 full day. There have been delays and early dismissals all the time. It hadn't panned into much until Friday afternoon. It started snowing around noon (kids got out at 11:30). Quickly we got about 1 inch of snow and slushy ice stuff. It was great. Matt got home early from work and we headed outside to play! It was great to have him home. He hasn't been home for a snow since the kids were really little. We had so much fun playing and sledding for about an hour before it got dark.

Winter time is always a good time for getting projects done around the house. I have been working on a few things and also realized I hadn't updated on a few of the redecorating projects from the summer. So here is what is new around our house...
I had struggled with what to put in the dining room and on the walls but it has all come together in the last couple of weeks. Kelly gave me a great table runner for Christmas and I found the perfect candle sticks.
I don't think I ever showed pictures of the updated guest room. I am not done but I may never finish so I might as well post some pictures. It is a beautiful aqua color and so peaceful!!
