So we got some snow


Winter Storm Jonas. 

Blizzard 2016.

Moms lose their minds 2016.

Whatever you may call it, we indeed got some snow. 

Not once, but twice.

First snow came, and it was a sweet snow.

Like we all had joy snow.

 Let's play and make hot cocoa snow.

And that's exactly what we did. Kids played with a neighbor and it was just a good ol' winter time.

 I guess that snow brought us about 1 inch?

But to be completely pun-tastic, it was just the beginning of the storm, or should I say the tip of the iceburg.

We went to bed that night under a winter storm warning, and I remember waking up around 3 am and hearing the ice. 

Ice, and then snow.  

Ice under snow is always bad.

 Pretty, but bad.

It snowed right around 24 hours, and the grand total ended at 12 inches. That is a record for BG in 24 hours, last time was 1968.

This kind of snow called for finding a big hill. Hope was running a fever, so Pierce and I, along with some neighbors headed out in search of hill.

We were like our forefathers in search of great land. After what felt like a journey along the Oregon trail, we finally arrived to the perfect hill.

Really great hill, but we were all basically frozen by this point.

 The snow was coming down hard so we decided to come back the next day.

So much fun!

 But it can't be all play.

Paul and Pierce shoveled the driveway and Pierce really has started to hold his own! We always knew having kids would pay off.

Poor baby girl was stuck inside for most all the fun, but we did manage to find a few creative things to do. Well, as creative as I can get.

As of today as I write this, we are on snow day #5, and I'm really hoping we have seen the sun set on the last of the snow days.

Snowmageddon 2016, you were fun.

I thought of you all when they were calling for that much snow for you all! I am just glad we didn't get that much here. Looks like a lot of fun in the snow though.

Hey could you let me know if you still can read my blog about Ellie and Madelyn! You had asked to be still able to read it after I went private. I just want to know if I did it right! Thanks!
