Wouldn't it be a wonderful message to receive when your alarm goes off at 6 AM?
The forecast was correct and Saturday morning we woke up to snow. Fortunately we didn't give in to its meanderings and refused to even shovel our driveway. I actually prefer the driveway covered in snow. It makes me feel like I'm in a movie or hiding away in a snowy cabin in the deep mountains. We have enough trees that it sure can look that way. These photos were taken from my front door.
We did take full advantage of the new snow and went snowboarding with my sister Mary. It was a lot of fun and even though it was only her second time on skis (she broke her wrist snowboarding, eek!) she was cruising down those hills like an old pro.
My brother came up for drill and we were able to go to dinner with him. That is one of my most favorite things. It was just us five older siblings, along with AJ, out to dinner and on those occasions I feel like one of the luckiest girls because I'm sure there are families out there who may not get along and I am grateful that we as siblings get along so well and spending time together is just the cherry on top.
Sunday was a quiet day because AJ and I are both enthralled in the Millenium Triology. AJ is just finishing book two and I'm near the end of book three. It's just captivating. So when we asked each other what we should do that night AJ replied that he really just wanted to read. I love that he can give in to his book worm side because I am a book worm at heart and am glad we both have a love for reading.
How was your weekend?
