I suppose that’s enough pictures for now!

Today, I have nothing to do. That makes me so happy. It’s snowing super hard in Pittsburgh right now and my little sister is really sick. I plan on hanging out with her and my brother all day and then heading into church tonight. Sounds like a perfect day to me!

What are you up to today?
