SNOW STORM #1 2011...........BRR!!!!!!

We just finished up Snow Storm #2 (a couple of weeks ago now), but I still need to update the first one.  Last Monday evening we got Caroline's gymnastics class in, got home, and then the storm hit that evening.  It was crazy because it was thundering and snowing/sleeting at the same time.  I think that's called a thundersnow.  We were out of school the rest of the week.  I got really lazy and stayed in pjs most of the time as did everyone else.  We did lots of snacking too.  (I'm going to need to start working out soon) I did not get out of the house from Monday evening until Saturday.  I think that's a record for me.  We got about 12 inches (which was nothing compared to north of us) with really high snow drifts and strong winds.  So, I guess it was considered a blizzard.  We enjoyed our time off, but it sure is work being home that much........constant dishes filling up the sink and picking up messes.
On Tuesday we took about 30 minutes getting ready to go out and play in the snow.  Well, we only lasted about 2 minutes.  It was frigid and windy.  (the wind chill was about 20 below)   So, we came in and had tortilla soup and cookies. 
All dressed up to play outside.................

The igloo
Sneaking some snow..

Pickles went from hating the snow to loving it!!
Not so sure..........

On the grill. 
Loved it so much that he wanted in and out ALL day.
I think Papa was bored so on the 2nd day after the storm he came over to shovel.  CRAZY. Even though we're grateful. 

Drift with the igloo.  Before shoveling.
The pluses of the storm were good eating, lots of family time, and lots of messes.  Haha!!
