Snow Day

Wow did it snow a lot today! It was impossible to get out of my driveway. My daughter saw all the snow and insisted that we go outside and take pictures. I wasn’t feeling well today, but it felt really good to go outside and get some fresh air. This type of snow is my favorite! It’s fluffy and easily molded into snow balls. Unfortunately it is not fun to drive in. We have had two big snowstorms already and it’s not even December yet!
Excuse my pink-ness in all the pictures. I took a super hot shower right before we went outside. Drastic temperature changes always make me pink! Anyway, doesn’t it look like a winter wonderland!? Well it pretty much is. I live in a snow globe. I know I look crazy without gloves or a jacket, but when you acclimate to cold weather you get used to it. It’s in the 30’s and that isn’t too bad. It’s perfect out to play in the snow.
I don’t know why, but I’m in total denial that November is almost over and Christmas is right around the corner. I’m not ready. I did participate in Black Friday shopping for the first time in years. It wasn’t too bad, but man, the lines were pretty long! I did get good deals though. I also survived Thanksgiving! It was because we didn’t go anywhere and it was just me, Mary, and the kids. No huge family gathering filled with drama. It was really nice. We also did a Friends-giving with some of our close friends. That was a lot of fun too! After we ate we played video games, how perfect is that?
 
For those of you out there who live in an area filled with snow I hope you're building snowmen (and women *insert wink emoji*). If you live where it's warm I'm kind of jealous, but I really love having four seasons than sweating my butt off all year long.
