As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

They said it would happen. They closed the schools. We got to sleep in. And then we got up...and no snow. About 1:00, though, it started.
So we picked out our super cool snow playing outfits...
and went out and caught the first snowflakes on our tongues...

even built a snowman within the first hour...

Then it started snowing harder.
Never fear...Sarah was here!

And Maddy...who obviously didn't learn a lesson from her momma....or Ralphie

Josh got home from his Valentine's Day celebration with Maranda, after a llloooonnnggg drive home, and he joined the fun. Please note that unlike last year's snow day, he is NOT wearing his Daisy Duke cut-offs!
Daddy and Hannah coming in from their "ten minute play date."

After a pot of chili and a good family dinner, we settled down for a movie, but not before Maddy and Hannah performed for us
Charlotte and I, both with nasty colds, opted to stay inside and stay warm (and in Charlotte's case, look cute!)
Josh was supposed to fly out to Jamaica on a mission trip at 6:25 am, but his flight has been cancelled. So he'll fly out Sunday morning instead. He has to be at the airport at 4:30 am, as in the morning. Because of the snow and the delays, he and one other will be flying separate from the others. My baby boy will be flying to another country without an adult. But, as he and Daryl both pointed out, HE is a week shy of being an official adult himself, so I guess the time has come. Doesn't mean I have to like it!!!
