Day Thirty: We Needed This
FINALLY!!! It snowed! Well, a little bit at least. Enough to get the kids dressed in their snow gear and take them outside. Enough to throw a few snowballs and for me to make this darling snowman . . .
Granted, there was only enough snow to make him about a foot tall. And, yes, that's grass poking through the snow in the background. We didn't even get an inch, but it was enough for my boys. When they saw it coming down my four year old couldn't get his gear on fast enough. We played tag. We played hide and seek. We threw (small) snowballs. It was pure bliss.
The only disappointment of the day was when we were outside and the sun came out. My older son responded immediately: "Mommy! I can't believe it's spring already!!" We're hoping for one big wallop before the end of the winter. Yes, even me. We had so much fun today. It was a day I really needed. If only everyday could be like this one . . .
P.S. I even got to watch a movie tonight! I know! Can you imagine?! My husband and I watched "Thank You for Smoking," and it was so funny! Definitely one of those quirky films; only 90 minutes long; Lots of great, dry humor. If you get a chance, rent it. (Plus I got to hear Katie Holmes, er Kate Cruise use the f-word several times and she was a dirty little whore, too! What does Tom think? Is that very Scientologist of her?)
