Snow Days (via Instagram)


It's not even officially winter yet.  And yet the snow day count has risen to four.

You know how I feel about snow days.

Love.

But wow.  Four already?!  (Good-bye summer.)

Anyway, I make good use of my time off.

I take way too many pictures of Gizmo in order to capture the perfect one.......


It was his first snow!  And he loves it.

I bake......


And eat.

*   *   *   *

I build fires.........


The first one of the season needs to be documented.  Especially when the tree is up and school closings are scrolling across the bottom of the t.v.

*   *   *   *

I huddle in front of the fire with my pups.........


They love it too.

*   *   *   *

And I take time to watch the snow fall.....


It really is magical this time of year.

Now to begin snow day number four........

Cookies, cleaning, and reading await.

  3. We haven't had a single snow day! Your snow days sound heavenly. And perhaps that's because there are no children in sight! ;) But seriously, that fire, the tree, and the school closings scrolling... ahhh.
    I love your little front porch scene. So beautifully done!

      Today I find myself a little on the restless side! A million things I COULD be doing, yet I want to be lazy.

  6. I was really not expecting a snow day today, so I didn't bring anything home to work on! Piles of papers that need to be graded...it's all still at school. Nothing to do but be lazy! I hope you're having a good one! Your doggies are adorable. :)

  8. All of these things put a HUGE smile on my face! Your pups are beyond adorable. And the fact that I don't live closer to you makes me SO sad because I am dying to try your baked treats!

  10. Will you guys have to make up the time at the end of the school year? Back in the day we missed like 5 or 6 days and they made us go to school on a few Saturdays to make up the time. It was a super waste of time because we didn't do anything but stay in our pajamas and watch movies.
    Your puppies look so warm and cozy and super cuddly...what a fun little break for you guys!

  15. Aw, my mom's dog is named "gizmo" too, your is equally adorable! Love the magical snow post, we don't get that here in North Florida so it's always fun to see in photos.

  16. Definitely enjoyed watching the snow fall..but I'm honestly a little glad to see it go! Slippery driveways, sidewalks, and parking lots are no fun with a 2 year old! ha! or a 30 year old for that matter!
