It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Yep, it took until February 29th for us to get some significant snow.  I believe it started snowing here somewhere around 3 AM.  It is now 5:35 PM and it's still coming down.  I love it.  It's been a GREAT day.

Starting to pile up by the patio door...

Hmm, probably should have brought in that patio furniture...

We were literally snowed in!  There were wind speeds recorded in Duluth today of 67 mph.  Lots of snow and wind makes for some big snow drifts.  We couldn't get out the front door.  Good thing the garage is attached, and it didn't drift too bad in front of the garage door.

We spent most of the day snuggling on the couch.  This is what you do here when there is a snow day and school is cancelled.

Sometimes you get up off the couch to take pictures of the neighbor's house out the front window.

And then you take pictures of daddy grill and baby grill.  See the baby grill there?  Next to daddy grill?

Sorry, baby grill.  I knew I shoulda brought you back into the garage.

The kids finally wanted to go play outside.  Andy helped dig out the front door.


Then it was time to play.

Some people use beach toys to build sand castles.  Not us.  Snow forts are way better than sand castles.  Plus? No sunburn or sand in your shorts.

I'm so glad we got some snow finally for the kids to play in.  Also cool?  It's supposed to be 40 by Saturday, so it won't be sticking around for long.  Plus, my Christmas decorations are all put away already and we don't have 5 months of winter ahead of us.  Yay!

The kids are about to come in, so it's time to go make the hot chocolate...

Tonight we get to do a little more snuggling and keeping each other warm.
