It Continues...

Well, the snow continues :) The kids had a great time with the back door neighbors. Was hularious to hear them stomping through the ice that formed last night. The kids were able to pick up sheets of ice off the top of the snow. The back yard now looks like water waves have frozen back there from all the ice they tore up and threw around.

Rob and I went for a walk last night. Was nice to get out in the dark and quiet. I took some pics of the lights on bushes now under snow. It's all so very pretty. I wish we could drive around and look at other homes. There aren't too many with lights up in our neighbor hood. The freezing rain started falling while we were out and by the time we got home our coats were covered in a very thin covering of ice. Just made me laugh.
You can tell how much it snowed and drifted, that tree has at least 18 in to 2 ft of trunk under all that snow.

Today is great!! Snow, snow and more snow!!! I love it :) Ok one of the reasons we moved out here was, yes, to get away from the snow but it's nice when we do get some of it. Really helps to make it feel more like Christmas is around the corner. We have not seen this much snow since we moved here in 2001. It has been so relaxing to get some baking done today and just stare out the window and see the snow coming down. It is even starting to form little drifts outside our front door.
The following pics are from a week ago when the snow first started then a couple from today.
Seth preferred to watch from the comfort of his high chair. He will NOT walk on the snow or ice, just sits there and screams and clings to our legs or arms. He doesn't like the fact that he slips all over. I mean, really, he just got the walking thing down then we throw him on the ice? He was having none of it!
After the kids came in everyone got Crunch bars. Seth really, really enjoyed his :)
Believe it or not Rob fell asleep here. He tells me he got under the table to plug in the vacuum and then decided to lay there for a sec. He was out in no time :) Next thing he knew he woke up to a camera flash in his face and his wife laughing at him.
Notice there is a lot more snow on the ground compared to the other pics with the kids. This was taken earlier today.
This is the mini drift forming out our front door.
And from a few weeks ago, the kids decorating the tree.
