What a day!

Do you ever have those days that go so fast that you look at the clock and it has been 8 hours in a "feels like" 1 hour time period? Today was that day for us. It was unplanned. Carefree. and perfect! Last night , we had a Gate Lock In (youth group) at church until 6am. I only stayed until 11:30pm, while Andy roughed it until 6:30am this morning. So when the girls got up, I hit up Target with them and just hung out while Andy slept. When the husband got up, I  made scrambled eggs and chocolate croissants from Trader Joes (go buy them! freezer section. amaze-) After chowing down some food, our friends, the Rowans texted us and came over for sledding/lunch....but it turned out to be an all day thing. Which was so much needed for all of us. Our neighbors hung too! We had a sledding party, (the dads handled that) while Jody and I hung with our babies! Then 8 kids piled inside with red faces and runny noses and spent time playing, "swimming", tea parties, chasing each other, warming up by the fire, and having a blast. The kids needed it as much as us adults. We had a couple rounds of roasting coffee at our neighbor Mike's and Luke's amazing Moka Coffee. I made some yummy Cafe Miel's and Americanos. Oh my word, too much coffee! We had a casual supper with 7 littles around the counter for Chef Andy to serve chicken nuggets, fries, apples and black beans! Bliss. No agenda. No organizing. No running errands. It was a great day. Thankful for our friends. Thankful for snow (for my husband's sake and Zion) :) Here are some pix for you!
