He decided to stay once he saw me and Olivia having a snowball fight :) We all went down the hill a couple times, Olivia ended by going on her stomach and swimming down the hill. B and Liv made a big snowman while I took Scarlett inside and we scrounged for items to use as eyes, mouth, buttons, and nose. I made hot chocolate and we all enjoyed it! It was a perfect morning and I'm glad B was able to stay. This was one of those times I just feel so blessed to have such a sweet family.

And then I had to shovel the whole driveway by myself, while Liv cried because she wanted to shovel but when I tried to let her the shovel was too heavy for her to push. She was sad that shoveling was "difficult". I said me too. And I was serious.
I wondered if people were watching me from their windows and laughing. A bit narcissistic yes, but keep in mind it was STILL snowing, I was getting hot so I took off my coat, so then my hair was dripping, and my shirt was starting to be pretty damp, and I was heave ho-ing the snow from side to side. Even the plow man stopped and yelled from his window, "As heavy as this snow is, your husband should be the one out here shoveling". I just smiled and mumbled something like "I know".
This was my first time shoveling in my entire life. Not fun. But I was proud of the finished product! And happy to have something that I don't HAVE to depend on B for.
