Pretending like we had to

Pretending like we had to

The other night when I wasn't sure if we were going to get snow or ice or whether either might make the power go out, I was thankful for the option we'd have of sleeping by our gas fireplace. So, we got inches and inches of snow (ok, not a foot or anything, but more than a dusting of snow means A LOT here in the South!). Fortunately, the power has not gone out, but I suggested we make a pallet and sleep in front of the fireplace last night anyways.

SO fun! We got the air mattress placed in front of the warminess of the fire and fell asleep watching SNL. So, not totally the same scenario as if the electricity were out, but still, a nice break from the norm. The dogs sure loved us sleeping "on the floor" and Mattie fell asleep on the air mattress with us for a while. It was so cozy and fun to be snowed in all weekend! I'm sure we'll be going stir-crazy by the end of the day, but for now, we're really enjoying it :)

Those are Pinky's toes up there. He doesn't like his picture taken, so he wasn't cooperating, but it's still cute...and see Mattie over in the corner? She's loving this. <3
