My husband doesn't let the weather dictate his plans, but I am a wimp and I admit it! He asked me if I wanted to go to the city with him. I looked out at the snow covered streets and saw the trees whipping around in the wind. I decided it might be better if the kids and I stayed home. Adam, being the smart guy he is saw his opportunity and ran for it. He called a friend at the speed of light and made plans to see a movie before I changed my mind. We wished him a safe trip and a fun afternoon with a friend, we waved as he pulled out of the drive.

I asked Roo how he felt about having a pajama day. He said it sounded "Gooood" to him. We hopped in a warm bath and put on clean pajamas. I was happy to be at home. I took advantage of the time and cleaned bedrooms, played with the kids and used the elliptical.
That evening after dinner (Roo picked and we dined on popcorn chicken and rice) we put in a cute movie (The Snowman and Snowdog) and popped popcorn. We cuddled up, just the 3 of us and enjoyed the cartoon. My son was amazed by the lack of words and abundance of music. He was inspired to play his piano for Harper and I.
Before I knew it, the kids were in bed and I had the house to myself. It was dark and quiet. I savored the moment.
It was a quiet and cold day, but it was a day spent with my kids. Another Saturday has come and gone. I hope you were able to enjoy time with your kids over the weekend.
