Snow around here is very different. I got the kids all bundled up this morning, drove them to school and there were no cars in the parking lot. What the....? Thankfully the crossing guard was there and she told me there was a 2 hour delay. It never would have dawned on me to see if the school was closed or had a delayed opening for 3-4 " of snow. How ridiculous is that! Apparently the buses had a hard time because there was some black ice in areas this morning. Who knew!

So, Hannah and Simon came home, put on snow pants, and went out to make some snow angels for the first time since we moved here. It has flurried a few times and stuck a bit but this is the first snow that accumulated. I know all of you in Colorado would gladly give us all your snow.

We had a nice weekend. We got a few things done around the house. Hung new shades in Hannah's room, got weather striping put on the back door, and assembled the new couch. And of course, I ran away from the family for 2 hours on Sunday and went to coffee. The kids tried to convince me to take Seth with me. He cries a lot when I am gone. The answer they got was, "No".

OMG!!!! I just got off the phone with State Farm! They are covering the loss of rent on the house in Denver. May I just say, I love State Farm and I recommend that you all do business with them! I am soooooo happy!!! Yippy!!!

tell me you didn't buy the white couch - but another color. Otherwise, is cool. Good news on the payment - knew things would go your way soon! People are afraid of snow here, too. Go figure.

Never in a million years would I buy a white couch with kids around. It would take about 5 seconds to destroy it. I got the beige one. Bland but neutral.
