We woke up this morning to a blanket of snow! What a PERFECT day to have a snow day - a Monday when Dad is off work for Presidents day. We were supposed to get some school in this morning since we took a few unexpected days off last week - but how can you sit inside and do school when Dad's off work and there's SNOW outside!! We bundled up and headed out and spent the whole morning sledding and watching Phantom have the time of his life. It's raining a little now, and the forecast calls for more rain tonight and tomorrow so I am glad we enjoyed the snow while it lasted.These were taken in our backyard. Out view is SO pretty. This is the big hill the kids were sledding down. It is a 10 minute walk from our house and you can see our village down below in the background. Phantom actually looks like he is wearing boots because there is SO MUCH SNOW caked to his paws. He had so much fun today, chasing snow balls, chasing the sled, spotting foxes, and eating snow.
