There's No Business like Snow Business!

SO FRIGGIN AWESOME! thats all I can say. I woke up about 5:45 to pee, and then looked out the window, and saw snow everywhere and of course couldn't go back to sleep. I ran downstairs and opened the door and it was awesome! I was SO anxious for the kids to wake up, and of course they slept until like 7:15.

We probably had about 4 inches from overnight accumulation, and then another inch or so as the morning progressed. Our offices in Charlotte were on a delayed opening till 10am, so that was sweet. I am working from home though, cuz the roads are, i'm sure, a mess.

We finally got to sled on the hill in our backyard! and use the sled we got last year. Andy, Makenna, Porter, Ian, and Chase all came over to play and sled. The kids all had a great time. Erin had a little trouble walking through the snow since it came up to her knees.

We headed inside for a little break of hot cocoa! MMM! well, MMM after i burned my mouth, the put an ice cube in it and marshmallows. I headed back out for a little more fun before work started (10am) with Erin and Ian and Bryan. Bryan ended up heading into work. Poor Brandon left at 6:15 to go to work.

Gotta say, having the option to work from home is SO NICE on days like this! I am sitting in my home office just looking out the window at all the snow blowing! All the trees and houses are covered in snow too. NC is great. :) sorry all you florida peeps. Yay for NC snow days! There is actually more snow here in Union County than there was on Beech mountain new years! Can you tell i'm excited? :)

Yay for snow days! We'll definitely have to plan a trip at some point for our girls to come play in the snow with your girls. Looks like so much fun!
