Snow Days


If every day was a snow day, moments like these would become priceless memories.  

If every day was a snow day, we would lie around in pajamas and sleep in late. 

If every day was a snow day, kids would bundle up in layers of snow gear and trek outside to play in the snow until their fingers are numb, enjoying every inch of the snow building forts and snowmen.

If every day was a snow day, those frozen kids would come back inside to sip hot chocolate while they warm up. 

If every day was a snow day, moms would make chili and grilled cheese and dads would shovel the driveway (I mean no sexism, understanding many role reversals in varying families). We would indulge in yummy comfort foods and snack too much. 

If every day was a snow day, we would watch family movies and play on tablets and read books to pass the time. We would play games and make messes and think about all the projects we should be tackling in our time at home. 

If every day was a snow day, we would do science experiments, bake new recipes and come up with fun crafts. We would enjoy time together and get frustrated as or fuses start to shorten. 

If every day was a snow day we would talk about how many days we've been stuck inside and wonder when the kids will go back to school. 

Everyday can't be a snow day but for these few snow days we've been given, I'm enjoying the family, the fun, the memories being made and the blessings of the blanket of snow. Snow days can't be every day but I'm celebrating these days we have been snowed in!
