Fun Happenings In Tyler!

Hey Friends!
Like the rest of Tyler we've been enjoying the snow this weekend. Our day began on Friday morning at about 5:30 a.m. My phone starting ringing and in my confusion I tossed John out of the bed to answer it. It was an automated message from TISD saying that school was canceled. I jumped to the window and threw back the curtains (this is sounding remarkably like "The Night Before Christmas," isn't it?). It was a winter wonderland! Who knew?!

John and I went back to sleep for a few hours and got another call from our dear friends Amy and Neil as we were getting up for the day. Their heat wasn't working in the their house, so they were coming over to crash with us. Bonus! We love houseguests!
I made some breakfast casserole that we enjoyed while we waited for Amy and Neil as well as Emily and Lauren, who were walking up from their house down the street (check out John waiting eagerly for Em and Lauren to arrive)! What a blessing to live near friends and family on a day like this.

We played in the snow for a little bit (Deen loved it!) and spent the rest of the day watching Season One of How I Met Your Mother.
It has been a long time since we had such a lazy day. It was even more fun getting to spend it with friends.
We hope your snow day was just as fun as ours! We'll write more later. Love you!
