In my last post, I said that a winter storm was coming our way. The weather predictions were right. 7″ of snow for us (lots of places in our area – like where I work – got 10-11″) plus a nice thick layer of ice before all of that. Basically all roads are just a sheet of ice. Not fun. Especially when we don’t have the resources in our area to clear all the roads.
I also mentioned that we had Finn’s party scheduled for this morning. We originally had it planned at a gymnastics place so the kids could run around and play as much as they wanted (that’s code for: let’s do it there so I don’t have to clean my house before and after and we can keep it low key).
Well, there was just no way we could all make it to the gym (35 minutes away) and we didn’t want to postpone it because things start to get really crazy for Christmas. So, we moved it to our house.
It was a wild time and it was definitely a quick change for us in terms of party planning because of moving locations, but we had so much fun. I think all the kids had a really great time and it was a nice break from the usual “what do we do when there’s a snowstorm” kind of activities.
Finn was smiling and playing hard all day and Mia wants a superhero party at her next birthday (I’m sure that will change 27 times between now and then) but that tells me that we made the right decision to go ahead and do it. So, so fun. (And we have very good friends who will get out in that mess to come celebrate Finn!).
Party pictures soon! For now, I’m going to sit back and maybe watch some tv – anything that is not on my to do list for a change.
