You Make Me HAPPY When Skies are Grey

If you were to ask me "What is your favorite season?" I would quickly respond SUMMER! I love the heat, love the tan, the water, love everything about it. Don't get me wrong, I'm no seasonal depression gal. I love certain parts of the other seasons but overall summer is best! 

Today however, I realized that there are some great things about rainy and grey days. Yesterday it was completely overcast. Today it rained. Take that back. It POURED. I had to get the kiddos myself out of the house after spending yesterday indoors. I was completely restless. However, getting soaked putting the kids in the car, taking them out, and putting them back in a few more times didn't quite do it for me. So we came home. It was sweet! I was almost giddy as I grabbed my old college hoodie and sweat pants, slipped on my pink fuzzy slippers, and played on the floor with the kids. Times like that are meant for colder weather! (Some wood to start a fire in the fireplace would have been nice, but I won't complain.)

These two make me HAPPY when skies are grey.
Gotta love that orange carrot nose!
And then my Mr. came home. So make that the three that make me HAPPY!
 My Mr. literally acted out Barnyard Dance! by Sandra Boynton. 
If you haven't read it, you should!
Great kids book.

And to top everything off, Bristol wanted to wear her new shoes to bed, and her prayer (as always) was hilarious. So, no more complaining about grey skies!

Chris has done the Barnyard Dance a few times himself. It's good for a laugh!
