Snow Day!

Well, Friday morning we woke up and the ground was icy and there was just a little bit of snow on the ground....but since it was really slick out and we were supposed to get more wintery weather soon Matt stayed home--turned out to be the right choice!! It started snowing mid-morning and didn't stop. Lilly kept running over to the window and pointing and I am pretty sure by the end of the day she was saying the word "snow".
By the end of the day we had gotten this much snow!! The news said 6 inches!
This morning Grandma Odie fixed a big breakfast of eggs, bacon, and her famous and most delicious biscuits and gravy! Uncle Greg came and got us (they only live 3 minutes away from us) and brought us back home after breakfast. It was so delicious and the roads were so deserted. No one was out. You could barely see any tire tracks on the road.
Smiling at Grandma Odie.
Reid hung out with Uncle Greg while Lilly went outside with Mommy and Aunt CiCi.

Lilly pushed this stool all around the kitchen....it kept her entertained for a while (not to mention out of their cabinets).
After Lilly's nap we went outside to play in the snow. We did a little sledding. Little meaning she sled down the hill one time.
Wiping out as she was trying to get out of the basket.
She really liked when I would grab handfuls of snow and throw it up in the air.....maybe I should've taken her out yesterday while it was actually snowing.

So cute all bundled up!
Then we brought some inside and she basically just sat around it and ate it.
Reid just stared out the window both yesterday and today--he loved looking at all that snow.
Looking at us!
I love the expression he is making in this photo. After playing in the snow, we made chili for dinner and we have rented a couple of movies to watch after the babies go to bed (Inglorious Basterds and The Ugly Truth)...life is soooo good!!

First of all, next time grandma Odie makes breakfast (ice storm or not) I want an invite. I'm sure it was delicious and I'm jealous just thinking about it. haha

Im glad to see you guys had fun in the snow and I still can't believe how big Lilly is getting. She looks like a big girl playing in the snow.

Reid looks like he had just as much fun as Cruz did. Next year boys you can play in the snow too!!

The snow is so pretty! Thanks for sharing. What a sweet Grandma making everyone breakfast. I am a little jealous...I am sure it was so good! The pictures of Lilly in the snow are so cute! She is such a doll. I love her cute little red nose too.
