Snow day awesomeness

The day after Hubby came back from Italy (on a 24 hour bus trip with a coach load of school/teenager type children *shudder*) he was supposed to go back to work. With there being snow on the ground we quietly hoped for some more snow. Mainly so his school would be shut and he could relax and catch up on sleep.

I'm telling you, me and the weather gods are now BFFs because once again they totally delivered...
And we had ourselves a snow day people!
So first thing I did once Hubby got up (and after tea obviously) was go for a little walk to take photos.

Alone.

Because I hadn't been alone without two boys since Tim left for his ski trip a week ago. It was needed and also felt like walking into Narnia minus a wardrobe of fur coats...

So I'll be quiet and let you take the walk with me...








*Sigh* that's better...

Once I got back, before I could even take off my Wellies, everybody was desperate to go sledging. 
Well it is a snow day after all...
*psst* I so have my PJ's on under my trousers here because I was so impatient to go out. It came in handy when I couldn't be bothered to get ready for bed later...


 A favourite spot...
 They all piled on..
Remember last year when no matter how hard I tried I couldn't get moving...

Well this year I had no problems...

Bricking it...
 *Ahem* I totally meant to do that...
I find black and white makes me look less tired and scary this time of the morning. School children were seen to be running from me, just saying.

In fact this time it was hubby's turn to get stuck...

Isaac had to take matters into his own hands...




And hubby the clever man said 'Boys look at this'...
 *sigh*

 And Lucas was all 'Um I'm stuck'...
It took a while to walk back because everything, I mean EVERYTHING looked photo worthy...


 The thing that finally got me going was the promise of this...
 Oh yes it was as good as it looks...
Later that afternoon Hubby declared he was going to make a better Snowman than my mini doesn't reach your knees Snowman.

Charming. 
 Okay it may be bigger but I'm not convinced it's better.
So Hubby proceeded to make a Snowdog as well to ensure his 
eternal greatness as best Snowman builder...

Which I have to admit...

is so stinking cute.
Doesn't that just kill you?

Best snow day ever...
