The First Snow Day of the Season

It's early. 6:45am to be exact. And Brayden is still fast asleep. He should be waking up momentarily to begin getting ready for his day of school. But instead the alarm on my cell phone is shut off now and hopefully, with a little luck, he will sleep in just a little bit longer than normal.

Because it is official, today is Brayden's first official Snow Day of the season! That means no school, and lots of lounging around the house playing games and reading books, and maybe even venturing outside into all of that fluffy white stuff with his sled in tow.

I snapped these pictures over the weekend of our first official accumulating snow. It's much worse now, with a layer of ice on the roads to top it all off. We'll be staying home and drinking hot cocoa and hot tea today, while we enjoy the winter weather.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in western Pennsylvania!!

Heheh, we have a few inches of the white stuff.
Fun, fun! It's so cool to see how excited little kids get over it.
And it's sooo beautiful when it's the first few snows of the season.
