The weatherman says we may have 6 more inches of snow–in some areas–by morning. I say…bring it.

What I really wish is that it would keep coming down for three days until snow covered up the door, the windows and maybe even the roof–with only the chimney sticking out—so just for a while, we wouldn’t have to go anywhere. I hope it happens in the dead of night sometime so that everyone is home and safe and warm.

Picture it. The first guy up would look out the window—which he couldn’t see out of because it is–as I said–covered with snow. He would say, “DUDE, I’ll have to stay home from school today.”

Then the next guy up would try the door and say, “It won’t open. Guess I can’t go in to work today.”

The next one up would say, “The snow is up to the roof. We better stay inside. I think we’re…snowed in.” Dun-dun-dun.

The all of a sudden we have hot chocolate, and Brocoli Cheese soup, and garlic toast just appearing, magically–from scratch. Board games come out, book shelves are studied, puzzles are started. We would have no choice but to stay inside and read and cook and play and snuggle together with…

a sweet smelling…

fuzzy headed…

…yummy baby.

And just how perfect would that be?

New Year’s Goal #4–  I will read 4 picture books a week to a couple of sweet babies who love books, or to a hatchling that is about to.

  1. oh, she is sweet! gosh, working from home I guess I couldnt use the excuse that I got snowed in! You can get 6 inches of snow today- I would have been sad yesterday because Sami and Tyler had a connecting flight in Salt Lake City and they have been stranded there before! Enjoy those babies!

  2. I’m so with you on this – the whole world going away for a day, or two, would have to be right there at the top of my wish list. Welcome little one,we’re so glad you’re here and that all is well.

  3. Hee hee… I feel like I HAVE been hibernating already! 😉 Thinking about it… has it snowed since then?!? I don’t really think it has. Hmmm. Innnteresting. Baby Kensington was the last thing to fall from the sky around here! 😉 Sweet!
