Snowy Days!!

Yesterday the snow came down pretty hard. It was so much fun!! I always get nervous when it snows here, because the roads are scary. But when we we are all home safe and sound I LOVE Snow days.

IT was so windy yesterday that our power went out too. I was a little nervous since the temperature was down in the teens but it was only out for 7 hours, from 2:30am so it wasn't bad. It was actually nice. It was like the world stood still for a while. The kids and I just gathered around the living room where we had light, and laughed and talked and then they curled up in there jammies on the couch and watched a movie on my laptop till they fell asleep.

This morning we slept in. Woke up and Tommy and Eric got up and shoveled our driveway and then also a single lady's driveway, while I made pancakes, sausage and hot chocolate. We ate breakfast and then have been playing in the snow ever since.

I love the way that our house looks covered in the snow.

The neighborhood gang.

Blake's snowman- he actually built this with Eric Sunday night when the snow first began. He was so cute, he ran inside and told me they were making me a surprise and that he needed a carrot. Gee, I wonder what the surprise was?

Hands covered with snow!

Blake covered with snow, but happy as can be!

I better watch out, the snow ball fighting began the second it started snowing!

Brody on the sled!

Just call him Rudolph! WE hooked the sled up to Diogo and he pulled the sled all over the neighborhood for the kids. They loved it and so did he!

Playing with photoshop. But this is one of my favorite pictures!!

Tommy falling on the snowboard!!

Enjoying the sled rides!

Tommy- he just can not be serious when I take his picture anymore.

Blake with the perfect snowball. I had to RUN!!

Brody and our neighbor Adina going for a sled ride!!

Could these two be any cuter in there snow gear??

Blake actually was quite the wild man on the sled!

Cute picture of Brody and Saige. I was playing with it and then couldn't get the color back. Ughh.

Dade smiling for the camera.

This is one of my favorite pictures. It pretty much sums it all up! I love the snow because I remember being a kid and having so much fun when it would snow. ?You can tell these kids are having sooo much fun. I love the memories they are creating.

How fun to read this. I love that you are documenting all these experiences. The kids will be blessed to have them to remember.

These are all such fun pictures. I just love the ones of Brody all bundled up. What a chub-chub. It's been such a fun few days!

looks like lots of fun! The snow sure is a good way for kids to burn off energy. Truman took some great naps during the snow days, which worked out perfectly. Love all your pictures.

It looks like it was a great day! :) It's been snowing a lot here too. A lot of days are below 10 degrees!! At least the streets are plowed and salted constantly!
