|backyard, frontyard, street view. isn't it gloriously beautiful?|
|playing in the snow outside....and inside!|
It started snowing Saturday afternoon and pretty much didn't stop until Sunday morningish...church was cancelled (I can't remember the last time that happened, and we're even at 1 o' clock!) and the roads were terrible but we braved them to get to the Poulsens for Austin's birthday celebration. He wouldn't miss the traditional BBQ Chicken Pizza for anything! : )
School and work were cancelled on Monday, so we got to spend the day inside together. We didn't feel like it was safe enough to take the kids out, but Austin and I took turns taking Eddy, our trusty snow car (and also semi junky so it didn't really matter if it was bumped into), on individual outings...he went to Barnes and I went to Hy Vee. By the end of the day we were all sooooo stir crazy so we decided to take the kids out after all and ran around the gym at the church. SUCH A GOOD PLAN, folks, holy cow we needed that activity! The kids felt so free, running around and exploring new territory and not being cooped up at home. It was delightful!
|I love how the ball seems as big as Stockton, but he valiantly carried it all around the gym,|
stopping to "shoot" or "pass" every now and then
|finally! I don't have to break the noodles in half!|
and it's still in a one-pound box. perfect!
