Snow Day

Harry and Spencer, 1-21-11
Lounging in pajamas
All day snacking
Zero degrees
Yawning lazily
.
Sporting bedhead
Nestled into couch cushions
Objective is relaxation
Watching snow flakes
.
DVD marathon
Afternoon napping
Yearning for one more day

  9. Such a cute picture of Harry and Spencer... They look so comfy.

    I've never lived where we had a snow day. But I did live up north where the fog was so bad the school buses had to wait for it to burn off, sometimes noon.

  10. Wanda ~ snow is so common here that we don't usually have many snow days...we just drive in it and get along just fine. But sometimes it blows and drifts over the roads or comes down too fast for the plows to keep up.

    We have delays for fog...especially in the spring!

  11. Boys with bedhead...there's not a much sweeter sight in the world.

  12. One snow day is never enough. If it starts to snow anytime, they hope it returns again, a lazy snow day.

  14. Betsy, you almost make me wish for the snow again. That sounds like my kind of day.

  15. One day is good and then they get restless. Me, too!

    XO,

  16. Are those train magazines on the window sill?

    The boys look so comfy and adorable!

  17. I know you were glad they just missed one day at school - but they do look pretty content in this picture. What is it with young men liking to sit on the floor?

    15 below? that sounds like a bad dream!

  18. The stacks in the window seat are Spencers. They are pictures of trains that he has printed off the internet and taped together accordian style! Yes, well-loved and well-worn thousands and thousands of pages! They go every where he goes in the house!

    And about 50 suckers are lined up on the fireplace mantel...you just can't see them! lol

  19. One snow day is plenty for me. ha. I don't mind the relaxed nature of it but I'm ready for them to get out of my hair for a while and go to school the next day! lol.

  20. Hi Betsy,
    Now that is one sweet photo.
    I am sending warm weather your way.

    Big hugs,
    Barb

  21. And hoping that your furnace provides toasty warmth amid your pleasure under afghan?

  22. Looks like the perfect snow day to me. I miss those snow days. I think they'd be more fun now that the kids are older.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Natalie ~ yes, they are more fun when they are older. I used to cry when we had a snow day! I just couldn't bear the thought of the long, hard day. Oh my...things really have improved..at least in my outlook! ha.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Paul C ~ absolutely..can't forget snuggling down under the woolly throws!

    ReplyDelete
  25. perfect!

    i actually worked up a sweat today on my walk home from the library with ms t - aided no doubt by trying to get the stroller through the snow on unshoveled sidewalks - fortunately, most of our walk was sweat-free when we could walk on the street of the quieter side streets.

    looking for that prolonged january thaw!! hope today isn't it!

  26. "0" woooooo

  27. I checked the comments before I asked...I had a feeling those were Spencer's train books over on the sill. I was going to ask if no one else had.

    You have your own built-in decorator!

  29. 15 below? Oh, my..will not complain about 8 degrees again! Lol!

    All ours has melted and now we're bracing for another round tomorrow.

    I wondered about the stacks but read above about the pics. My nephew does that with articles on Harrison Ford. His current thing is anything and everything Indiana Jones-related. Never a dull moment on the Autism-spectrum!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Rebecca ~ Indiana Jones? Oh that is so cute. :) I don't think my guys will ever leave the train theme!

  31. Most winter's we (or the kids) have many snow days because more than half of the students in both schools come by bus from out on country roads. I can still remember listening to the local radio station with fingers crossed. Happy Snow Day !!

    ReplyDelete
  33. A great day...I think we all need more snow days..looks like they are in the zone! :D

    ReplyDelete
  34. we all need days like this every now and again. Bliss! Just that we don't get snow here!

    ReplyDelete
  35. This looks like a snow day at my house! We are expecting another 3 inches tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I had to come read your answer about the stacks in the window and it made me smile, so cute!;))

    ReplyDelete
  37. I had the same questions about the train piture stacks... my sons thing is dinosaurs so we have them overflowing a living room closet and lined up on the bookshelves where he plays!

  38. Your boys keep everything so tidy..I never see anything messed up in your house..What's up with that..I can mess up a room just walking thru it!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I also wondered what the stacks in the window were...I love it...how endearing is that. He really loves things...that is good!
    Which triplet did the video with the knife and his foot? I love that still!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Kim ~ LOL! That was Harry! Oh my, that was so funny...I'd forgotten about that!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Betsy, is that Harry on the floor in this pic? I thought it might be because of his foot! Just the way he has it posed! He had great control over the movement of that knife. You are going to have to post that video again, because people might not know what this crazy lady thinks is so funny and superb!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Kim ~ haha.. YES! that IS Harry!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ok, it's taken me 30 minutes to scroll thru all your posts but I found it! it was from Feb 25, 2010. I just love the precision...I have a thing in common with Harry...My big toe turns up too. I read that somewhere in your posts about his new leather shoe. hahaha..this is so fun!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Kim ~ you could click on "harry" in the label cloud. That would take you to all posts about him and be quicker to find it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Dang! hahaha Learn something new every day!

    ReplyDelete
  46. That is absolutely brilliant, Betsy, and the photo? Priceless. They look so in the lap of luxury and comfort, cozied down. Yes, they look so content and happy too. You can tell you give them a great home. you should be really proud of yourself.
