Snowmageddon 2011

More like Ice-mageddon around here...

We are on Day #4 of being housebound with two restless kiddos. And by we, I mean me, since Jon always has to work, no matter what is going on with the weather.

I ran through my indoor bag of tricks on Day 1, so I was very grateful that at least today's inclement weather included some beautiful thick snow (on top of the slippery ice).

We bundled up and braved the cold for some fun.

Doesn't Meg look cute in JD's old snow gear??

Meg did a face plant after I stood her up and that was it for her. She was content to watch JD play for awhile.

JD played for about an hour. I taught him how to do snow angels and he made them all over the yard.

But his favorite activity is to eat the snow. He definitely stayed hydrated while he was playing!

Very cute!! I bet you and JD were both glad he got to burn off some little boy energy outside!!

I agree I like getting snowed in versus iced in. Although, ice was under the snow. Yes, we fell a few times, but the snow was so thick we just laughed it off. Made me glad we did not attempt to go outside until today.

I'm glad J.D. had fun in the snow. Mercy and I had a pretty good snowball fight and made one tiny snowman.
