The past three days have been completely magical. There have been no schedules, no responsibilities, no distractions - just uninterrupted family time and precious memory making in the snow. It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows, and there were moments when cabin fever and too much togetherness got the best of us. But all in all, it was amazing. And I hate to see it come to an end.
When we finally gave in and went inside just as the sun was setting, we had tortilla soup, chili, pizza, and hot chocolate before heading home. We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends who love our babies, let us invite ourselves over, and give us date nights since we don't have family in town to watch the kiddos. They are good people, and we love them dearly!
Ellie fell asleep on the way home but got a second wind as soon as we got back. It was a little "touch and go" there for a few minutes, but now the kids are in bed, and I'm getting all sentimental reminiscing about the precious memories we made this weekend.
I'm the sap who grieves when major events, vacations, etc are over. I get all teary-eyed watching Hallmark commercials, so getting back to reality tomorrow is going to be a little cumbersome for me. Ha!
But seriously, we have a super awesome week ahead of us with two ballgames and church. That should help ease the pain. Plus, I have to get my house back in some kind of order, so I will be plenty busy. I will truly cherish these past few days, the precious family time, and the wonderful friends we shared it with.
