The girls have been dying for snow and they finally got it. We got about 23 inches, which is the most we had at a single time since we have lived in our house (maybe since we moved to PA) 5.5 years ago. Matt was out in lovely sunny San Diego to teach a course at a conference so I was grateful that the power stayed on and that our neighbors brought their snowblower over to help clear out the driveway. It started snowing on Friday evening and didn’t stop until the middle of Saturday night. There was no school on Monday. Here are a zillion pictures of our many times playing in the snow.
They all participated for a group photo on Saturday…
so they didn’t want to take another one on Monday. These little ones have some BIG attitudes many days.
On Sunday after venturing to church and determining the roads were in satisfactory shape, we decided to go ahead and attempt to go to Disney on Ice as planned. Part of the drive there you could barely tell we got any snow, but then once I got off the main road, apparently the plows had not visited. In the short 1 mile to the the center, I got stuck three times. Thankfully several people stopped or came out to help. We finally arrived about 5 minutes late (a normally 15 minute drive had taken us 55 minutes) and the girls loved it. I looked up a new way home and it was MUCH better. Thanks to Matt’s parents for the tickets to Disney on Ice for Christmas.
Daddy came home before bed on Monday and there was a 2 hour delay this morning, so just enough time to squeeze in some sledding. I attempted to sled with the girls but I’m just not as strong, so they don’t go nearly as far. Felicity wanted nothing to do with sledding and was happy to sit and watch with me.
