The white stuff

As you might have heard, it snowed on the east coast. I mean it REALLY snowed. We got at least 24 inches. Unlike most adults, I actually love the snow. I forced my children to go outside and play multiple times. They were all, "It is cold and wet out here." And I was all, "IT IS SNOWING! WOW! ISN'T THIS FUN!" And they were all, "Ummm...I guess." But don't listen to the kids - it was definitely fun.

I took some pictures to document the snow's progress...

Fabulous - right? Look! Our patio chairs are almost completely covered!

Here is a picture of my husband shoveling the driveway...I can't remember the last time I've seen this much snow. AMAZING!

And finally, here are some pictures of my sweet babies playing in the snow...

Yep we got it too and it is fun but so tiring and the kids could not make it more than 45 mins-well max could but sam was freezing.

HaHaHa!! I know right?? It was crazy snowy here! I have summer-beach-babies. They do not like the snow. They like to sit on the back of the loveseat & look out the window at it, but to go outside & play in it? Not so much. Maggie went out with her girlfriends for about an hour, Will took longer to get dressed in his "snow stuff" than he was outside. He fell once and that was it. "MOOOMMMMY!!! I'm cold!! Can I have some hot choklit?" That was the extent of our snowplay.

That IS fabulous! I mean, as long as I'm looking at it in pictures, instead of freezing my tail feathers off actually standing around in it.
