snow day!

Today-6 inches of snow
North Carolina Weather-Crazy

When you work at a hospital there's no such thing as a snow day. For that matter, there's no such thing as Christmas either. However, Monday is one of my days off, so I was so excited about the snow last night. We've actually had a couple of good (for NC) snows this year, but I've had to be at work for all of them, and of course they had melted by the time I got home.

I begged Freddie to skip work today and stay home with us, but the best he could do was go in late. I am DYING to go sledding and praying the snow holds out until he gets back home. In the meantime, Jack and I played outside for a bit. I had to make a mad dash around the house trying to find some gloves to wear. I found 4 gloves, but they were all lefties. Little man loves socks and gloves and I expect he is to blame for the missing righties.

He was very interested in one blade of grass that poked through the snow and it was so cute to see him trying to figure it out.

I decided to borrow a little snow from our neighbor's house (no one lives there) to add to my snowman. Jack was not happy that I left him in the yard alone and cold. He cried and whined like crazy. He didn't love the snow. He was so cold and shiver (I suppose I would be too, if I'd gone out there NAKED!) He warmed up to it a bit and seemed to enjoy the cold snack. We gathered up a few pots and I'm going to try making some snow cream later.

If you look carefully, you can see he's actually trying to take my glove!
Little man finally convinced me to go inside. It looks like he's trying to get his tush warm.

Your dog is ADORABLE!!! My dog absolutely loves the snow (he's part Husky) but it always seems to surprise him every year. He really goes crazy...running all around, burrowing. It's hilarious!
