Snow Day

The kids were back at school for all of 2 days after the holidays before school got cancelled for a snow event! It was super exciting though. We don't get much snow, so we'll take what we can get, even if it ended up being ICE instead (and we had to wait all day for it). We still had a fun time though!
In anticipation of the forecast, I did buy a cheapo sled earlier in the week. You know, just in case! :) It ended up being perfect for what we had and I'm glad I bought one.
The ice started coming down that Friday night and we headed out as soon as there was enough to do anything with. We've lived in Alabama long enough to know that it would be gone in the morning! And for us, it was mostly gone the next day. For others close to us, the roads were still iced over the next day and even into Sunday. School was even delayed on Monday! It was crazy! I'm glad we had a little bit of fun that night though!

 We did a lot of sledding that night! The boys pitifully tried to build a snowman, but it's not so easy when you are dealing with ice!

 The next day, the roads in Vestavia were still closed so we were homebound even though the roads in our neighborhood were ok. We were not about to get out though. Ice is definitely NOT my friend! We still had a good bit of ice in our yard though so the sledding resumed and it was so much fun! It was so cold though.

It was a good couple of days, but by Sunday, we were itching to leave the house. Two days of confinement was ENOUGH!!! And now we're back to our regularly scheduled 75 degree weather in January. Only in Alabama!!!
