The beginning of the week started with rumours of snow coming ... a lot of snow. The little bit that we got earlier and the rumours of a big storm coming our way finally gave me the kick in the ass I needed to finish cleaning up my backyard for winter, yes the cushions were still outside on the chairs what about it.
Doing this also inspired me to find a way to get my car to fit into the garage, something that has never happened in this house. I have been working hard on the house and cleaning out a lot of clutter, I spent a lot of time in the summer organizing the garage but getting the car in there, that's a whole new level of organized.
So Aisley and I spent a couple hours out there and when it was the moment of truth Aisley stood in the doorway holding her breath and watched eagerly. Seriously she squealed when I pulled the car into the garage, she jumped up and down clapping her hands exclaiming "Mommy Mommy you did it, the car is actually in the garage!" Yup it was that big of a moment. Trust me it was tight, but I did it ... I ... did ... it ... I got the car in the garage!
All that snow that was promised, it was delivered, and it was delivered in the most glorious of ways. Over night magic happened and we woke in the morning to a beautiful winter wonderland. The cherry on top ... it was the first snow day of the school year, yup in November! The day was perfect, and truly I mean perfect. It was warm outside, the snow continued to slowly come down, the snow was perfect for building and playing and all the kids were so eager to jump in the snow and play. Our sweet little Payton still joined us for the day and those three girls spent the whole day giggling and playing, it was honestly ... perfect.
Bonus of cold weather ... hot chocolate in Christmas mugs and paper straws in Christmas colours, it's the perfect combination. Oh and don't forget the marshmallows, lots and lots of marshmallows.
November my expectations were high, I hugged the shit out of every last minute and my oh my you delivered! I cant wait to see what December has in store for us, last month of 2013 .... bring it!
