It is snowmania at my house today!  The DC Metro area is getting slammed by Old Man Winter, as we speak.

Eleven  inches and counting… the precipitation is just unending. Squee!

At 7:30am my kids were clamoring to go outside and play.  They flew out of their beds this morning and immediately started babbling uncontrollably.  “Snow, snow, snow!! Can we go out yet? Can we mom? Can we go out yet? Where is my boots? I want to lick it. It is higher than my head. Can we go out yet? I’ll bet school is closed on Monday! Where are my boots? Can we go out yet? Let’s make snow pancakes! Can we go out yet? Can we eat snow for breakfast, mom? Is that okay? Can we go out yet?”

Oh my Heavenly Father!  I hadn’t even had a full cup of coffee yet.Shoveling, Again

My husband, on the other hand, has been continuing to do what he does best – SHOVELING SNOW.  People, he gets kind of obsessed with the snow shoveling thing. I feel like he has been out there every hour trying to get rid of the snow that dared to fall on his pristine walkway. It has become a bit of a joke in our family. How obsessed is he? LAST NIGHT (at 11:45pm) I had to stop him from beginning the process.

Snow is his nemesis.

Me on the other hand?  I sip coffee. I bundle children. I feed the hungry males of this house.  (All of that snow shoveling and frivolity is hunger generating, dontcha know?)

Glee! Of course, I am kind of failing at that job this morning (total mom fail!) because last night I was at a holiday gathering and I neglected to stock up on the requisite milk, bread and eggs.

So as of this  moment we might be forced to eating peanut butter and jelly… ALL. DAY. LONG.

<—– Oh well, something tells me that my kids won’t care!
