Snowmageddon

Ever since Sunday, we've been snowed in our house. 'They' are calling it Snowmageddon. I'm not sure what the final measurements came to, but I'm pretty sure we got about a foot of snow. Normally, I'm not a big fan of big snow storms. This time, it hit at the perfect time. Don got home from work shortly after it started coming down hard. Since it was Sunday morning, that meant he didn't have to be back in to work until tonight (Tuesday night.) The boys were so excited when I told them that he was home and sleeping. They kept dancing and singing "Daddy made it home safely!" And Kai kept saying "Yay! Daddy did not get hurted!"

Don brought home some donuts from work. Liam wanted a donut snowman to celebrate the snow day.


When Kingston eats powdered donuts, it gets everywhere

After breakfast, the boys helped me clean up a bit. I had just bought them each their own brooms and dustpans. They were super excited to use them!


Here are a couple shots out the back door. This isn't the final result. But I guess I didn't take pictures of it.


This little girl is a doll, even with a slightly crusty face

We made some snow ice cream for a little snack. I actually never remember trying it before. But I was so pleasantly surprised when I realized it tasted exactly like an S&J's wedding cake snow cone (my favorite kind!) We had it two days in a row because I loved it so much.







We tried the frozen bubble trick that had been circulating the internet. Apparently, bubbles are supposed to "freeze instantly" in temperatures below freezing. Well, Monday was the coldest day in 20 years, (in the negatives) and I can tell you that they did not freeze instantly. It was tricky to even get a bubble to not pop or fly away. But I was determined! It may have turned out better if I had a fancy camera. But the iphone pictures will have to do.




Liam recently told me that his top 5 favorite things to do are hug me, kiss me, snuggle with me, massage my back, and massage my feet. This kid is a charmer.

He was making a heart with his hands


And just for fun, here are a few pictures of Evangeline. She tried a clementine for the first time today and she loved it! I can't stop taking pictures of her all the time.




It looks like more snow may be coming our way tomorrow night. So I think we'll stay in and stay warm for a few more days!
