So Thankful!

I know it sounds just crazy but I am soooo thankful for the winter storm! I was thinking this morning about how years ago I would have been pretty grumpy on a day like today. Funny how the older I get I become thankful for the things I once was grumpy about.

Even with inches of ice, snow coming down and whatever else will be coming today this is why I'm thankful:

Extra snuggle time!

Daddy home (unless someone needs him)!

The excitement of an ice storm through a childs eyes waiting to see if the electric goes out and everytime if flashes jumping for joy (boy what we could learn from a child).

The thrill of trying to bake garlic bread with the electric going off about every 2 minutes.


Baking 48 mini cookies and find out that they ALL disappeared within 3 hours.

Sleeping in and a nap whenever you want it.

The beauty of the ice and the snow, isn't God truly amazing?

I could go on and on. What are you thankful for during this crazy weather?

Love your perspective Sarah :)
It is 70 degrees where I am. That is crazy in and of itself!

Hmmm... seems to me I remember another ice storm spent with you and your mom soooo long ago. Fun times, love you both!

We are grateful for electricity, a warm home, and extra time with hubby/daddy.
On another note, Sarah, could you please email me so I have your email address? Your email I sent came back.
Love to you all!

I love snow days too...those unexpected extra days that we all get to stay home with no where to go and no reason to even get dressed! Too bad this storm missed us here in Minnesota! We just have the -30 windchills!!
