Yes...I stepped outside to take a few blizzard photos. I just had to share our beautiful weather with the rest of you!

Photo 1: "Blizzard Boy" - He thought it would be fun to bundle up and go outside this morning...he lasted 10 minutes.

Photo 2: Jenna all bundled up to go next door and play with the neighbor girls. I had to walk her over because the drifts are so deep and the wind is so strong. I thought she might get buried or blow away!

Photo 3: Jenna's playhouse on the patio in our backyard.....Look at all the snow on the roof!

That photo of the playhouse reminds me of a smurf house for some reason! BRRRRR.... I remember those days. Did you give Jacob hot chocolate in a Santa mug with toast when he came inside? (Ok, was it just me, or did we all (sisters of mine) dip our toast in the hot chocolate? That just seems kinda gross to me now.

Not gross if it had peanut butter on it. That would make it like a Reese's Cup! I love how you can still tell it's Jacob because of those eyes. We're already called off tomorrow, too. It looks really cool watching the wind whip the snow around out our picture windows. In fact, I thought about taking a picture of it - from inside. Older but wiser!

I love all the pictures of the shoveling, house, and especially of the kids!!! I shoveled too. Bob used the tractor and scraper. You had much more snow than we did. Bob measured only 8 inches, although it is difficult to get an accurate count when the wind blows. Now I remember back in 1978..............
