Today was such a nice day!

We woke up to snow this morning.  Yes, in East Texas, can you believe it?  Of course it is all melting into slush now.  That's okay though.  We were happy to welcome the snow here!

The girls got all into warm clothes, coats and gloves and went outside for some SNOW fun!  They played and had just enough to roll snow into a couple of pretty nice sized balls.  Of course a snow throwing "fight" was in order.  Hannah just giggled and giggled.  The girls were laughing and having the best time.  I was inside but was watching them through our over sized glass doors.  

The dogs were mostly staying in their dog house and trying to keep warm.  Of course they had carried their blankets off and they were buried in the snow.  Thankfully my sweet hubby had carpeted the dog house.
They came in sopping wet and we had to get those clothes into the wash but not before we got the girls all bundled up again.  I find socks are a must to keep warm.  So against their wishes, socks were in order!!  I noticed two of them "got away" with wearing their slippers instead.  That's okay because they are the fuzzy warm ones.  Their Daddy built a nice cozy fire and they got close to the fire to warm up!  We had not gotten groceries yet or we would have definitely had hot coacoa and some homemade smores.  I have that on my list to buy.

I did my work in our home today and feel really accomplished and content with what I have gotten done.  It looks nice and clean and I have a candle burning that is my husband's favorite..  While my hubby went grocery shopping (he went on a big grocery shop) I continued working and getting things done, made sure the girls were fed and having a fun time (after school was completed, of course)

After taking this picture, I realized we had the other counter top full as well.  When Daddy grocery shops, he stocks up!

Now, we have groceries to put away and I have a load of laundry left to finish.  I've just finished watching the girls play a round of monopoly.  They are wanting another board game now since we have just the one.  Since I see they are now playing it, months later, and enjoying it and taking good care of it - I will buy them another.  Any suggestions of what game?  They do not want checkers.  Plus we need a game we can do 3 players on.  

I'm thankful for the groceries but honestly dreading putting them all away.  That sounds terrible I know but it's true.  I like smaller grocery shopping.  The kind that doesn't take forever to put away!  

OH!!!!  And, hubby got me a marker board today!!!!  I'm excited about that... but also, he went and bought us two new inexpensive sofas today as well.  How exciting!  I can't wait to get them here.

Mommy is needed!  got to run!
