After Mass and breakfast at The Waffle House, we got bundled up in snow gear. We had bought snow suits for the kids last year when leaving for Boston and anticipating a big snow storm. But it melted so quickly that we didn't get to use the snow suits last year. I'm glad I bought them big as they still fit the kids today and probably will next year too.
We drove to St. Patrick's cathedral to sled and dig on the hill behind the church. Many other kids had the same idea!
My "athleticism" of the day was merely to go with the family to stand upright on flat ground and take photos of them sledding. That was enough for my back and I've been lying down at home much since then.
John didn't remember to ask about today's Christmas gifts till 2:00 p.m.! He is very excited about growing butterflies in the coming spring (thanks, Grandpa!).
We gave Mary her first apron and she has now been insisting on wearing it for more than two hours. I guess it is a hit!
Meanwhile, John is outside building a snowman with Daddy and we are expecting Grandmom and Pop-Pops to arrive tonight for a Christmas visit!
