2014 has begun.
We couldn’t be happier about this blanket of white snow covering our ground.
We are stuck in the house anyway. Hurrying along trying to pack the entire house up in a matter of two weeks. So, this large amount of snow fall is a nice way to be “trapped” at the moment.
Yesterday was a morning when we awoke full of ambition. Boxes to be packed. Laundry to be washed. Groceries to be purchased. I had things to do, and Dan was home to help with the kids. It was the perfect mom moment of being able to get out for errands alone. Yet, it all was put on the back burner the moment the boys lifted the shades, and all they could see was a winter wonderland.
The kids wanted to be in it, and we could not deny our desire to as well. Off we went, running through the fluffiest snow fall we had ever felt. We lasted an entire 30 minutes, until the boys gloves were far to soaked to continue in the fun. Runny noses, red cheeks, and grins as big as our to-do list, it was a great way to kick off a day. A true testament to the way we want 2014 to be. The ability to stop in the middle of chaos, and bring some fun into the moment.
