First snow day of 2011!

We finally got some snow yesterday. It was only an inch or two, but for us snow-deprived Portlanders, it was nice to see even a little bit. The girls went outside to play twice. They both thought it was Christmas when they looked out the window in the morning.

Charlotte was so excited that she suited up before she even ate her breakfast!

Even William got bundled up and enjoyed his first snow. He seemed a bit confused about those little white things that were falling from the sky.

After a nice afternoon of playing in the snow, my evening spanish class was canceled, so the girls and I had time to play with potato heads before their bath. It was fun listening to them giggle when I put silly parts on the potato head, and they were happy to help me create our masterpiece.

On the agenda for today:
*File some of the papers I sorted the other day.
*Make some playdough for the girls.
*Sort through another box of books.
*Fold and put away a huge pile of laundry. It takes a bit more planning with line drying to keep a good rotation going, but so far it's working alright. I moved the drying rack into William's room, which is the warmest room in the house. Things dry within a day, which isn't too bad.
*Make a big ol' pan of lasagna.
*Relax with David tonight, and maybe try to play some games together.
