Snow day equals lazy day

I was so excited last night to find out that my school system and Paige's was out today due to the snow. I was on the phone with one of my favorite blogger buddies : ) and Paige came in and started pointing to the TV with a look of pure delight. Do you remember being a little kid and wishing and hoping for a snow day? Well, your teachers were equally as excited, as I think I was more overjoyed than Paige.

We all slept in today and it was just great! Paige decided after a little bit of playtime on the computer ( this kid loves Club Penguin ), we both snuggled up with a good book and read. I realize that doesn't sound too exciting for some, probably just downright boring, but for me and my girl it was pure Heaven. I am reading Twighlight and she is on the 6th Harry Potter book. She is just so smart. I love that she has her sister's love of reading. I'll never forget her first grade teacher writing on one of her report card comments, "Paige is a READING MACHINE". To this day, when I tell Paige how I love that she is such a wonderful reader, she will respond with, "A reading machine, I am" : )

I hope you all have had a great day!

Keep my baby mouse in your thoughts as she debuts tomorrow evening at 7pm. She has a gaggle of fans coming to support her and that makes her terribly nervous. I am SO sad that I won't be getting any pictures, as flash photography is not allowed in the performance hall : ( Also, I thought we could take pictures on the night that we chaperone backstage, but we have to leave our cameras in the security area. I was told that we can take cell phones back there, so I will snap a few on my cell. (Lisa, we found was in her dance bag ... whew!!!)

Have a great weekend!

Your snow day sounds just perfect....and the timing was great too....Paige could hang out and rest up for her big debut tomorrow!!

So glad that you found the phone....that is great news....ah yes, one never knows what you will find at the bottom of a dance bag!!

I will be thinking of you tomorrow night....wish I could be there, but I will be sending good thoughts from PA:)


PS. Maybe Paige will run into Nick online at Club is his favorite website!!!

My kids won't know that special feeling until they reach high school. Why? Because they never ever close the schools here. Even if the buses aren't running the kids still go to school. Crazy! In high school they won't go because nobody will be there even if they could get there!

I can't believe you guys had snow down south before we did here up north! Hey, a lazy day of snuggling up and reading a book sounds like heaven to me. Glad you enjoyed your day off!

Gail said...

Aren't snow days the best?! Glad you could relax and rest.

Good luck to you Paige, I know you'll be awesome tomorrow...

Your card is beautiful Missy, thank you so much!

Ahhhh I remember being in school and NOT wanting snow days... I know that sounds a little strange to some but snow days were my life line OUT of the house! Becuz if we had to stay home for ANY reason at all we had a list of chores to do when we woke up! Now kids are supposed to be lazy right??? HA! Not in my mothers house! lol My sister and I would find ways to get out of them... I would call work in highschool and BEG them to let me come in since I didn't have school! LMAO!

What a fun snow day. Curling up and reading sounds like such a luxury to me. I know Paige will be the best mouse ever. Have fun at the Nutcracker :)
