Snowy Days

This is what greeted us yesterday morning when we got up, and it looks no different today. 6-7 inches of beautiful snow. Yesterday morning I phoned the two eldest kids high school and they informed me it was open and even though I wanted to keep them home they wanted to go see there friends as it was there first day back after the Christmas holidays. So off they trudged in the freezing cold to get the school bus, only to get a phone call 1/2 hour later to say the school bus hadn't shown up. So I made them come back home. I phoned the school up and they told me all school buses in Leeds had been taken off. "Well why didn't you tell me when I phoned earlier" "you didn't ask was the smart reply, but now we are sending everyone home". But my youngest's school did the right thing and sent texts out and announced it on the radio.
So as soon as the kids were home they got changed out of uniforms, my daughter curled up in her bedroom watching chick flicks with a bovril and my two boys got wrapped up to have some snowy fun with the dogs who equally love the snow.

Bobby threatening me with a snowball

Scott always has to go one further with the size of his snowball

Rebel and Flint


The boys throwing snowballs for the dogs to chase, they always try to catch them only to have them crumble in there mouths.

After 1/2 hour playing in the snow they came in soaking wet, but there waiting for them were warm towels and hot cups of bovril all round, apart from the dogs, no bovril but they did get the warm towel treatment, it's a right job melting the snow and ice of their fur.
Anyway today both school closures were announced on the radio, so left the two eldest in bed to have a lay in. Less arguments that way too as they fight like cat and dog.

Hope you all keep safe and warm and I hope I haven't bored you too much.
Happy crafting

Good morning Tracy, thank you for visiting my blog, i thought everyone would have forgotten me after my long absence. It feels good to get back into things and to start catching up with everyone again. Wow what lovely photoso of the dogs and the snow, i took some this morning of rocky bear when we went on our daily walk. It was so lovely, will put the photos on my blog tomorrow i think.

I can see you've also been busy with so many gorgeous cards hunny i love them all. Hope 2010 is a good year for you and your family.

Enjoy the snow! Jasmine's school was open, so hubby took her in this morning, but i have to pick her up, not looking forward to that much!

Wow! Look at all the snow. It looks like everyone is having a blast, including the dogs. We have a few inches of snow here, a lot of wind (3o mph gusts right now) and really cold. It feels cozy looking out it though, doesn't it?

All of your boys looks like they are having a blast!Stay Warm and Safe! We are getting the snow tonight. They have just issued a storm warning for our area!I don't want it I WANT SPRING WARM WEATHER!!!

Looks like you have more than us Tracy, but figured that from the news. Looks like more is on it's way here though.

Anysia arrived home at lunchtime as she said she was worried about driving home from college in Cambridge if it got worse and confess I was more than a little pleased. She only passed her driving test in November soon after her 17th birthday and is still a pretty cautious driver, but that's not a bad thing.

And school just did a parent mailout to say they would assess the position at 6am tomorrow and post on their web site if they will open or not.

Kepp warm and crafting. How's the birdhouse coming along ?
