blizzard 2016

so we got some snow :-)
around 3 feet of it.
that's a LOT of snow. around here, we don't really know how to handle that. so everything has been shut down for DAYS, even the federal government!

we've eaten a lot, sledded a lot, shoveled a lot (!!) and had a lot of "together" time.
 on Christmas day, the kids "group" gift was new sleds/tubes for the snow. it was 70 degrees that day and felt kind of silly. but we sure were thankful for them this week!!

the snowboard has been the biggest hit.
Joshua and sawyer have gotten pretty good at it!
the kids have been out of school all week so far...and i'm guessing they will be the rest of the week.

it's been fun to have a project to work on when we're not shoveling. or feeding the kids. or sledding. or doing laundry. our basement is coming along!!!

 classic "sawyer face"
 love those pink cheeks. but would prefer them to be sunburn at the beach ;-) {remember that picture??}








 the snow is beautiful. but you know what might be even more beautiful?? the fact that they can ALL put on their coats, hats, gloves AND boots all by themselves!!!
blizzard 2016. you've been fun. we're having a blast. but we're good for another year ;-)

These are great pics! Somehow we had NO sleds :( they must have all busted last year and I didn't realize. What a snowstorm to miss out, but thankfully EJ converted his snowboard and that kept them occupied :) Praying for your Day 6!
