Let it snow! Tuesday night, around midnight, it started snowing here and I was SO EXCITED! The next morning Payson woke up around 7am. Usually if he wakes up that early, I tell him to go back to sleep or give him my iPod to play games so I can get a little more sleep, but not on Wednesday. I was so excited to see how much snow fell overnight. As soon as I looked out the window, I was wide awake and up for the day. To my delight, the was about 4-5 inches of snow everywhere and it was still coming down.
It normally takes Paul about an hour to get home from work, but Wednesday morning it took him over two hours. He had to drive slowly and carefully because most of the roads had not yet been plowed. He got stuck twice, once going up a hill and then around the corner from our house. Once he got home, he had to shovel the driveway in case we needed to get out later.
On Thanksgiving, we stayed home all day and spent quality time as a family. Paul took the boys outside to play in the snow and build their very first snowman. We rearranged our living room, put up our Christmas tree and then ate our Thanksgiving dinner.
Overall, it was a great holiday and we received around 8-10 inches of snow, but I am sad to report that our snowman has already melted. :(
