Well, we thought we had gotten some snow with that storm a couple weeeks ago, but we were just getting prepared for this past week. The cold weather started on Monday with the windchills in the negative 20's. Monday night, the snow started. It snowed fo about 12 hours or so and then it turned into freezing rain for a couple hours. After that, it turned back to snow. Overall, we got about 8-10 inches of snow with somewhere between 1/2 - 3/4 inch of ice.

We got about six inches of snow yesterday, so Daddy got off work early. We were very ill-prepared and so Daddy had to go to the store to buy a sled. We all went over to the big hill near the house and sledded for an hour or so. C surprised us. He is not usually the "daredevil" type, but he could not get enough of it. He kicked Daddy off after the first trip and it was all flying solo after that. K enjoyed it, but was a little more indifferent to the whole experience. All day today, C has been begging to go outside and play. He has been out to play like 4 times and can't get enough. He loves making snow angels and he even made his first snowman (not too impressive since the snow is very powdery and not good to pack tight). Daddy got home from the gym, worn out, and C put on the "Please Daddy" eyes and so we went out and played some more. Luckily the stomach grumbling and the smell of dinner beckoned us in.

It's been an interesting week. The average high around here has been around 20 degrees. Today's high is 8 degrees. The windchill is -15 degrees. I wouldn't mind the cold if there was a good accumulation of snow to be able to play in, but it has been snowing for a week now and not a lick of accumulation. Oh well, hopefully we'll get some later this week. They are calling for some.
The other day we were sitting around listening to the radio, when I put in the Cherry Poppin Daddies CD, "Zoot Suit Riot", and C started his spaztic dancing. K was jamming too. We were able to get a couple of videos of it, but we can't post them. Write us a comment and we will send them to you. We hope you enjoy them. These kids are so much fun, that the fun times far outweigh the trying times.
