A bbblizzard!!

Well, I can officially say that I have never seen so much snow at my own house in all my life!  What a day!  It all started late Sunday night and by the time we woke up Monday morning, we had about 9 inches on the ground.  The wind blew 40-50+ mph all day and it just dumped and dumped snow.  We had a grand total of 19 inches in town which is such a blessing...we needed the moisture so much.
However, being cooped up inside ALL DAY with a very active 31/2 year old boy will put your creative skills to the test.  We did it all...crafts, movies, snow ice cream, forts, naps, books, cooking and the list goes on.  It was a fun day as a family and we get to do it all over again tomorrow because it takes a long time to move 19 inches of snow around and the roads are still bad.  The three of us loaded up in James's truck this evening to trek across town to borrow his dad's snow blower...we had to turn around, it was that bad.  Here is a glimpse of our day...

First thing we saw out the kitchen side patio this morning.

As the day went on, it just kept coming.  Waco had to get creative when going to the bathroom, she was quick on her feet and wouldn't let herself sink down!

I ventured out with the dog just to see for myself what it was like.

My snow boots
(just noticed an old ski tag, I have not been skiing this year, ha!)

Back was noon and we still had on our pjs!  No, my child did not have a brownie for lunch, it was his dessert after lunch!  :)

After nap we made snow ice cream with sprinkles!  
Eating sweets just makes a day inside that much sweeter!!

When the wind finally stopped howling, we went out to shovel snow.  I did not shovel snow, I was the photographer!

Parker climbing a snow drift.
There is a retaining wall under him, the snow came up over it.

Posing quick before we sank down deep!

No jumping today

My cute little snow bug!

Stay tuned...the sun will be out tomorrow with not much wind which means...big time snow man building!!!  Can't wait!
