snow day! (post #2 today)
The kids got to try out their new duds for our trip to Minnesota. It went like this, I threw the snowpants on the couch and their new boots on the floor and told them to get dressed, all the while I'm on the phone with BFF and not really paying much attention to them. Finn starts crying and says he can't get his boots on. While I'm showing them the fine art of pulling down the gaiter over the boots, I notice bare skin... "where's your pants, Finn?" Loch says "they're over there"... both kids took OFF their jeans to put on their snowpants LOL! So I told BFF I had to go and gave them the rundown on winter dressing 101. I actually said "you better pay attention, what are you going to do when we get home"?
To which Loch says "we are home"! Wow I keep forgetting that "I" am from Minnesota, but my kids are Virginians through and through! We had to have a sit-down and go through all the gear and the correct order to put it all on LOL!
I threw a plastic snow shovel out the front door and they both yelled "YAY!"
Obviously they haven't been notified that this is work...
I promptly took the shovel away when they were done so nobody will steal it - we appear to be the only one on the street with one!
After 2 hours of play, what's next? Of course, a round of hot chocolate!
Fun is done, now we are having freezing rain and I keep peeking out at the street light to look at the build up on the power lines. One outage that only lasted about 3 minutes, otherwise I'm hoping for the best!
