winter storm


As I am sitting here typing this post, I am watching my poor husband battle some pretty crazy blowing snow outside.  He's almost finished with his morning workout of snow throwing - literally.  Lucky for him, his wife bought him some much needed snow pants for Christmas, which he got a little early this year.  School is closed today, so no Holiday party for Emily.  Oh well.  We are supposed to get about six to ten inches when it is all said and done.  A white Christmas indeed.

The wreath on our front door - decorated with REAL snow.

It has finally stopped snowing - and this is pretty much what it amounted to.  Not a scientific reading - but it's pretty close.  We have had quite the adventure today - Emily left her snow boots at school, and triumphantly, Daddy went there and retrieved them.  Paige and I are the only ones inside at the moment, and with her runny nose, it's probably going to stay that way.  We will be going over to our neighbors house tonight to partake in a chocolate fountain - which was also retrieved from the school during the "Boots Expedition".  Long story.

Emily and Jenna getting pelted by Eric.  Oh what fun!!!
