It's after 1pm and everyone is still in pajamas or sweats. We had a lazy morning (as lazy a morning as you can have when your children are ready to start the day by 7:30) full of coffee, a long breakfast, an early morning dance party, more coffee and a late brunch. The fire is in full force, and the little ones have been playing (mostly) nicely together. I even sat and read my book by the fire for a good part of the morning. As I write, Hannah is asleep while Lilly and Jack are upstairs having their "quiet time," complete with books and trucks and coloring and writing. Jim is reading, I am writing and enjoying these quiet minutes with some more coffee, pausing to feel the little kicks in my stomach that are getting stronger and more frequent by the day. What's on tap for this afternoon? Probably some shoveling and playing outside--maybe building a snowman or two, some hot chocolate and a little sledding.
I would like to say thank you to everyone who got it wrong and overreacted. Days like this are few and far between. The Clarks will take an over forecasted snow storm any day.
