On Thanksgiving we got our first spattering of snow. It wasn't impressive, didn't stick and therefore was not a real snow. It did however make me happy because it was the first sign that winter is on its way, and winter means Christmas!
Today we got our first real snow. A half inch of glorious white stuff. Of course I managed to accidentally set my alarm for 8am instead of 7am last night and instead of leisurely sipping my coffee and checking for school closing updates, I whipped off my duvet in a panic ran from room to room getting school uniforms onto my half asleep children whist checking Facebook to see if school was still on (it is the most reliable source round here), howling at the girls to eat their breakfasts, taking the dog outside so she didn't pee in the house, and de-icing the car so that I could get out the door ten minutes late. I forgot chasing the cat back inside because he is still doing that little trick of chasing my car as I am leaving the driveway. Stupid cat.
We made it to school on time- barely. It sure is Monday, a beautiful snowy Monday.
