Diary - Part 2

Well, we are surviving this historical and momentous winter. I think when it's all said and done, I will have had my taste of snow for my lifetime. All of those years I spent wishing we could have more than 2 inches of snow have been redeemed.

The snow started early Friday morning and ended late Saturday evening. Fortunately, we only lost power for a few hours on several occassions. But nothing horrendous. I know many friends were without it for days. That would have been miserable! So I am counting my blessings that we must have a head honcho from the power company who lives down the road. The service was incredible!

We got a lot of snow. A lot!

Here is the view from inside.

This is the view from inside my jacuzzi bath. Not as luxurious as it may look. Inside the jacuzzi, you would find five thousand plastic toys and 2 monkeys.

Then Bob decided he should start shoveling our driveway just in case our power went out and we had to evacuate to a neighbor's house. We have a long driveway, so this was no simple task.

And this was what the driveway looked like a few hours after Bob returned inside. :)

We stayed warm, painted Eveley's bedroom and sewed some new curtains for it, made some goodies, and played a little Mario.

NOTE: Marty, I think about you everytime I hear the Mario music. Good times! I remember saving up my money so I could go to the Kelly Mart and rent Mario for the weekend when you came over. And I'm so surprised how much I remember! =)

Sunday, the snow stopped and the sun came out.

We waited for the temperature to climb above 20 and then took the kids out. They loved it! And I must admit we have one totally awesome sledding track. We had a blast.

I apologize for the pink mittens, Caleb. We hadn't gotten around to getting you any snow mittens and you had to borrow your sister's.

And I'm still keeping up with Project 52! Check out our shot for this week in the sidebar.

Oh, and did I mention that another snowstorm is heading this way? It is supposed to snow from noon today until Wednesday evening.
