Snowed In - Days 3,4 & 5

So I haven't done a great job at posting each day with the things that kept us busy...sorry! It is amazing how tired I have been each night though after entertaining 3 little girls who are, once again, stuck at home! We are offically now at about 17-18 inches of snow with more expected over the next 6 days! It is crazy! This is very, very unusual for Seattle but it has been very fun! It is absolutely beautiful right now and, even though we are stuck at home, it has been a nice change from our usual rainy winter! are some of the things we have done over the past 3 days!

**We made scones and had a tea party! Rylie was supposed to have an international potluck at school on Friday where all the students brought in dishes from different countries to taste. We were going to make English scones. Since she didn't have school on Friday we decided to make our scones anyway and have our own little tea party. It was lots of fun! (Rylie had also done Madison's makeup earlier in the day which is why she looks the way she does!) :)

**We made Christmas cupcakes (shaped like stars) and then decorated them. They were actually pretty yummy!

**We actually got out of the house for a couple of hours on Saturday and braved the snowy, icy roads. We realized that if we didn't get out, the girls were not going to have a chance to see Santa so we went with some friends to "Santa's Den". We didn't get any pictures there because you aren't allowed to use your own camera but here are some pictures from our trip there. We had to hurry home so we could get there in time for the next snow storm to move through!

**We opened 1 gift...from Mimi & Papa! We decided to let the girls open 1 of their gifts so that it would give them something new to do! All 3 girls got huge tubs of Crayola products so we have done lots and lots of crafts!

**Rylie did our makeup! As you can imagine...we were all beautiful! The pictures didn't come out very well get the picture!

**And finally...we got more snow! Here are a few pictures to show you where our snow level is now! The first picture is of our mailbox...if the snow gets any higher someone's mail is going to get wet! The last picture is of a fire hydrant right in front of our house. You can barely see it (it is yellow) so look closely!
