This actually worked out perfect for me. I had was on call from Sunday morning until Monday night and absolutely exhausted since then. I'm leaving Friday for two weeks so I get to a) rest and catch up on sleep (b) get some laundry and last minute cleaning done © get an extra, unexpected day with my kids before I go. :)

Great post! There's usually an upside to everything!

I will get to spend the day with my kids making memories, it's not too often we have this much snow! I also got a ton done around the house since the little one had the older sibblings to play with and keep her occupied while I did dishes and laundry! Now to make some banana bread and head out to play in the snow in a little while!

While I was on a work teleconfrence, my dh and dd were outside shovelling and having a blast together...was a very sweet sight. He built her a little hill that she slid down over and over and over again...

love watching those two

Made clearing the drive one last time fun by bundling up dd and taking her out with me. We had fun playing in the snow and running around with the sled :)

-sleeping in!
-having a great neighbour use his snowblower to clear our driveway, so I didn't have to shovel the snow
-seeing the kids excited about winter weather and actually playing outside
-kids not complaining about wearing all their winter gear
-our cul-de-sac actually got plowed instead of waiting for it to melt
-great chance to catch up on some reading
-playing Wii with the kids (Michael Jackson: The Experience is so much fun)

I hope you're having a great day too!

Had fun shoveling with the drive with Ds, taking breaks to play in the snow.

It's very pretty.

Not so much so far...

I may find something tomorrow....I'm sure my "backyard" is beautiful and the river will be great for skating if I can clear a spot!

I helped a neighbour get out of the snow, spent time with my son playing in the snow and had a chance to have a nice conversation with the neighbour next door and chat about her dog!
