Unfortunately, another snow storm hit NC this past weekend. We received about 6 inches Friday night while we slept and woke to another winter wonderland on Saturday morning. Saturday brought a little freezing rain and a little more snow.
Will was thrilled. The boy played outside by himself and with a friend for hours. For being a Mississippi boy, he sure does prefer the cold.
Emma was disgusted. She refused to go out and play even when her friend came to the door asking her to come out. The wasn't a total bust for her though because she ended up at the friend's house, pretending to survive a tornado and making caramel apples.
Jack was in the middle. He played outside with the other boys for about an hour (which is quite respectable considering it was 11 degrees). Otherwise, he spent the day getting his valentines ready for school.
I feel like I spent the day on the phone. Saturday was Allan's 41st birthday and I had planned a surprise dinner with neighbor friends. It was questionable whether the restaurant would be open because of the snow/ice and then one of our friends was sick and another couldn't get out of work. All's well that ends well though. Being the brave Northerners that we are, we hit the roads and had a fabulous dinner at a Japanese restaurant. We ended the night with my homemade cheesecake and lots of good laughs.
I am also happy to report that we even got up and made it to 9:15 mass. Our church was one of the only churches in the Triad area to actually be open. After mass and a movie, we hit the hills of a local (closed) church to do some sledding. It was a fun weekend! Happy Birthday Allan! We love you!!
