A Wonderful Gift!

Here we are having ANOTHER snow day in North Texas.  The girls have now been out for 5 of the last 7 school days! This is a record!  I have not seen this many snow days for North Texas kids since I started school!  I think at the most we had 3 and I don't remember that many even.
I tried to go last night to get some items from the store...BIG MISTAKE!  Worse than Christmas Eve!  I left and decided that with the Jeep I could handle the roads in the morning and get what I needed then.  The condition of the roads would decide how much I got.  Well they weren't bad at all (for me anyway) so I went ahead and did major grocery shopping.  They had pretty much everything I needed after restocking from last night, and I enjoyed almost no one there.
Got the girls and I lunch.  Just simple stuff to fix.  Holly ate what I had and Haylee made herself the pasta I picked up for her that she likes.  They were both enjoying being lazy so I had lunch long before them and went on to do my chores.  After I heard Haylee finish her cooking and eating I noticed the water running a lot in the kitchen.
When I went to put in another load of laundry I found this:
After finishing her lunch she put away her leftovers then hand washed and dried her dishes.  She left them out so they could do a little more air drying before they get put away since I am a stickler for the dishes being dry before they are put away.  What a wonderful treat!!!!!  That warmed me right up!  So proud of my maturing baby!
I also enjoy my shoe choices on these snowy days.
Stick with my house shoes in the house and my snow boots when heading outside.  The boots came from Academy back when we were getting ready to go to Colorado for Christmas in 2008.  They have been one of the best investments ever.  And surprisingly fairly comfortable.  And who doesn't love a day in their house shoes?
But you can't forget a little color and it doesn't hurt when they help with keeping you warm.  Can't believe I didn't think to wear my knee high socks under my skinny jeans till almost the end of the snow days last week.
Hope everyone else is getting wonderful surprises and finding your own enjoyable way to stay warm!

I love the snow boots. How is it that you live in Texas and have snow boots and I live in New York and do not yet have snow boots....something is wrong with this picture here. :)

And of course....loooooove the socks. I have some purple black and white one son right now - with my dress shoes - at work!!! Why? Because I do what want! :)
