Covered Up

That pretty much describes how I feel. I have a list a mile long of things I need to get done in the next couple of weeks before Christmas. Add in the snow and the extra "chores" that go along with that and you can imagine how busy things are here. I shoveled the sidewalk for the 4th time yesterday. The snow plows come along and dump snow from the street over the sidewalk I just cleared 2 days ago!

Want to see picture of the snow and imagine what life is like at 5 degrees? Click here to see our first snowy experience. We have about 5 inches on the ground right now and there is a little more predicted for tomorrow. Winter has definitely set in and so far hasn't been too bad. It's cold, sure. But if you have the right clothes (when are my boots going to get here?), it's really not too cold. The kids ask to go outside and play in the snow every day. They love it.

We have a lot more snow than what you can see in the pictures. The ones of Carter by the snow fort were taken last weekend, after we got the 5 inches. I'll try to get pictures of him by some of the piles made by the snow plow. They're as tall as he is!

Looks like we may have a white Christmas after all!!

Yaaaaaay! Be sure to save it until we get there! I may still have some boots in the attic. . .I better check! The weather forecast this morning showed more coming your way soon. I bet the kids are excited. Ashlyn's dream was to have snow in Minnesota and she got it! Enjoy!
Love, Mom

Lara - What wonderful pictures you have to capture the precious memories you all are making!!!! I am a bit jealous of playing in the snow - but have to admit I don't put on a jacket most of the winter down here unless it is really cold! Just one more thing to carry. (I do give the kids jackets though!!) Hope you are putting those scarves to some good use. :) I love you guys and love getting updates about your new life!!! Talk to you soon by phone - add me to your list b/c I will be calling soon!
