Unexpected rest

Tonight was the annual Mardi Gras parade in Clinton. Sarah was supposed to march in the parade with the high school band. Due to the extreme cold temperatures (around freezing) and white stuff seen in the sky, they cancelled the bands. Instead of standing outside for about 1 1/2 hours wrapped in blankets and hoping that Kristen and I don't freeze, all 3 of us had the pleasure of having a night off. I had cancelled Kristen's piano lesson because of the parade and the dance studio always cancells class on this night. It was so nice to stay home tonight. We were able to make and enjoy supper together. At least the 3 girls. Kurt still had a volleyball match. After supper, Sarah worked on her homework, Kristen read and practiced her Awana and I was able to get a good start on Kristen's halloween outfit. Hoping to finish the top tomorrow night and get started on the bottom part of the outfit. It was so nice to have this time together tonight. We all felt like we were able to accomplish something and still felt rested. Now that football season is almost over, and Sarah is done with Cheerleading we should be enjoying a few more of these nights.

SNOW???? Nothing like that here in TX! Today, I can honestly say I am OK with that. I did flip the thermostat to heat tonight. The morning can get pretty brisk.
