It was a grading day and already a planned day off for Graham and Faith, but Ellie's school was called off too and I was allowed to work from home. It's so unusual to have so much snow, but the kids were happy to get outside and play in it.
I don't know if you remember this picture from our last snowstorm, but it seems Graham was prepared and ready to strike first this time.
Faith and I watched from inside as Graham later came to his sister's aid when she was having trouble getting around in her car. He's trying to plow a little path for her :)
Ellie quickly gave up on driving the car, and then this happened....
Graham worked on building a fort...
....and they both got soaking wet and had a blast :) Once they finally came in and got into dry clothes, it seemed like a good idea to have some hot cocoa.
Also happening at our house this weekend - Faith has been staying with us while her mom is on vacation. She's been taking the bus to her house after school to feed her dogs, but we thought it would be a good idea to bring them to the house for the weekend.
Sammie's not very excited about the plan, but the pugs made themselves right at home. Should be an interesting weekend!
