enjoying 5 inches

We were pretty excited about the amount of snow the night before so I went out on my deck the next morning and took a measurement.

And we got 5 INCHES!

Cooper had to come with me and survey the scene. He looked hilarious.

Even icicles were hanging around.

We took Cooper out later for a walk and he enjoyed himself, although it was a little icy.

Even this cold face is still smiling.

This snow stuff is pretty cool mom.

We enjoyed the snow while it stayed soft. We ended up getting some freezing rain later that day which turned the whole top layer everywhere into an ice sheet. That made for some sweet roads for a few days.


winter storm warning rang true

We were forecasted for this big winter storm today and although I was skeptical of how big, we actually got dumped on.

By late Sunday night we had this nice blanket of snow and awesome 'snow silence' that hangs in the air.

Snow, it's good to see you here again.


congrats, we sat through a whole meal

See this face? Don't be deceived by it's cuteness...

Anytime we've gone out recently this kid would not sit still or hardly eat. It was really bugging us because eating out is something we enjoy weekly. BUT today this kid surprised us and ate like a champ and stayed at the table the whole meal. Congratulations to us, we have won this time.

Thank you Cooper, you have restored our faith in your eating out abilities.
