Snowed In

I just love days like today. We woke up to about 4 inches of snow on the ground and forecast for much more so we got the wood stove cranked up and just stayed in all day. Nothing like a day snowed in with my girls. Snow during the week usually irritates me since it usually messes up my commute to work but on the weekend I just don't mind. The day was made even better by the left over Chinese food from our Chinese New Year Party last night. We have been celebrating Chinese New Year for the past couple years so it was nice to finally have Grace here to celebrate with us.

This has been a pretty rough winter, we have has more snow than I can remember in very long time and this past week we had a stretch of days with temperatures in the single digits and below zero. Usually this is the time of the year that Jen and I start planning a trip to somewhere tropical but I just don't see that happening this year. As much as we think Grace would love Jamaica I think we may have to wait a couple years.

Some pics of Grace clowning around over the past week.

Yeah, my sis lives near Taunton and they had so much snow they cancelled church. Her hubby is a pastor, so it was like a day off for them! They played in it, shoveled it, played some more and then made cocoa and cookies!

We're getting ours today - started around 10 and is just stopping now (5-ish). The kids are BUMMED because they already had the day off for MLK day . . .

Happy Shoveling to us both!
