This is what we did today instead of going to church. The doctor told me to not take the Spunky one to church or school until Monday and the Princess has a sniffle and quite frankly, all those excuses aside, I just don't want to go today. The streets are terrible and I don't want to brave the church parking lot.
It snowed about 8 inches last night. DH is out with his back and so yours truly got to shovel. That is not a complaint. I LOVE to shovel. I would much rather shovel than say...do laundry. This is quite the irony because I usually have to come back in and do the laundry anyways. ;)
We live in the end of a cul-de-sac. Our friendly city snow-plowers...when they COME...shove all of the snow in front of our house. This is not a complaint either. My kids LOVE the snow oasis that it creates. This morning they were sledding down the man-made hills. We built a snowman (well, more like a snow cone with a ball on top. The snow was just not quite rolling strength). We had a family snowball fight. Dh and I threw each other in the snow (I LOVE when DH is all playful and throws me in the snow). The princess and I made a tunnel. A wussy tunnel. We touched hands and decided we were done. So we came inside and ate pastries. Delish.
And now I am off to make cinnamon rolls and French bread for our Super Bowl party tonight. I am a sucker for those sample people in the grocery stores. I usually buy whatever it is they are sampling. This is because of two reasons, one I feel bad that people just take their samples and never buy what they are giving away. And two, I just really like food.
Because of those sampling ladies we are having Hummus at our party tonight along with gobs of other food. I have never had hummus at a Super Bowl party. It is just not "manly" enough I suppose. Aaaa, whatever. My mom and the Princess will appreciate it.
