Snowed In - Day 1 looks like we may be snowed in for a few days! Actually I am just hoping at this point that we get to leave the house sometime before Christmas! We are not good at estimating snowfall but we know we have had a ton today! My guess is about 8 inches already with more to come! Since our vehicles are not real equipped to drive in the snow we figure, at least for now, it is safer to just stay at home! So, in honor of our time at home, I decided to blog about each day...what we did, how it went, etc. So here is today:

- We all went outside to play in the snow about mid-morning. We spent about an 1 1/2 hours just in front of our house playing and making a huge snowman that is taller than Tim! Even though he is huge, we probably didn't use 1/4 of the snow that was in our front yard.

- After the snowman, Taitlyn wanted to go in so she and I headed inside for lunch and a nap while daddy took the big girls down the street to sled. This was the first time Madison actually wanted to do it and she loved it!

After sledding...very wet and very cold!

- After lunch we watched Miracle on 34th Street together and played some games.

- More time to play in the snow! This time they conquered the backyard!

The backyard before the girls got there!

Where's Taitlyn?

There she is!

Madison was going to try to "bury" Rylie in the snow but the snowflakes kept falling in Rylie's face (as you can see in the picture below) so she decided very quickly that it wasn't much fun!

- Before dinner the girls and I made Christmas wreath treats...lots of fun and lots of mess!

Our wreaths had plenty of "berries"!

Don't worry, Taitlyn really did enjoy it...she just didn't want her picture taken!

Then dinner, bath, and off to bed to get lots of rest for another full day in the snow tomorrow!
