So we had some snow on Monday night and Tuesday. A lot of snow. More snow than I have seen in awhile. Thank goodness no ice came first. The kids got out of school Tuesday and Wednesday.
Garrett bundled up. Trying to build a snowman. This wasn't the "packin' snow". This was light and fluffy snow.
Owen in his 5T snowpants. They were a little big, but they worked!
Maddison in her Layers as well.
View to the north
Group shot (maddison's picture taking skills come from her mother! One in 2 shots has her eyes closed!)
These are Wednesday morning "after the storm" pics. Man did the wind blow. I thought a few times we were going to blow away..One fence post is buried. But other spots in our yard were almost bare.
(my apologies on the pics, but I took these from inside! It was too stinkin' cold for me and plus G had to wear my snow boots. Apparently we don't own any his size! )
Looking out our bedroom window off the wrap around porch. Notice around the trampoline hardly any snow.
Garrett and Owen Thursday morning chillin'. We did have school today, but on 2 hour delay. So the boys had a little more hanging out time.
We did have a few rough moments during the snow days, but all in all had fun. Brent took off Wedneday and went to help his parents out choring. A lot more work when it snows like this. The fence line feed bunks were full of snow. Anyway. Garrett and Brent were gone so it was Owen, Maddie and I yesterday. We played and did a few little things then Maddie and I had a tea party during O's nap time. It was a simple affair. She had Pepsi, I had Sprite and each a cinnmon roll, BUT we did use her little china set. Then we painted fingernails. AND we made supper, Rice Krispie Christmas Trees & Carmel Chex mix. If you have never made or had Carmel Chex Mix. MAKE AT YOUR OWN RISK. BEWARE-That is one of the most addicting foods I have EVER had and trust me I have had a lot! It needs its own special "warning" sign. But oh soo good, but oh soo bad for you.
Hoping everyone enjoyed their snow days. Now back to the grind we go....
