snow, snow, snow!
We have had a lot of snow this week! Today we got about a foot - and after spending several hours digging out our sidewalks and driveway, we still had some time for fun.
During the storm the snow was icy, sharp, and stinging with crazy winds. After the snow stopped it calmed down a lot - and there are not many things more exciting in winter than climbing massive shoveling piles.
Yeah, that is the ground wayyyyyyyyy down there.
Yep, down there.
It is indeed a gorgeous winter wonderland as the entire world seems to be covered in mountains of pristine white...that is, until you need to go somewhere. Lucky for us, we are cozy at home with lots of science projects, holiday crafts, food baking, and of course, each other!
We are getting another 5-8 inches over the weekend, which should give us enough of the white stuff to re-create our massive snow forts and get some sledding in. The boys can't wait!
