Blizzard 2011

I guess people had a right to be Running Scared because we were definitely hit with a lot of snow.


Yes those are cars under the snow!

Dan woke up early so that he could attempt to make it into work. Yeah right!

By 9:30 this morning he had the driveway and sidewalk completely cleared.


Our neighbor didn’t even attempt to clear the driveway!


I am pretty sure we were the envy of the neighborhood.

About an hour later the snow plow came through and cleared the street … as best as he could.


So we decided to take a walk and check out the rest of the subdivision.

Snow was everywhere but Jacob was convinced this was the best day of his life.


Before we even left the yard he was already climbing in the snow.


He was having a blast until he saw the snow hill in the cul-de-sac.  He just started running. By the time I caught up with him … this is what I saw …


Dan thought it looked like fun so he joined in too!



We continued on our journey around the block. I stayed in the street but Jacob decided to walk the snow instead. But he fell …



He loved every second of it!


Seriously … loved it!!



We almost got back to the house when Jacob realized he could touch the street signs.


And when we got back to the house Jacob decided street sledding was a great idea.


It did look like fun but then he tuckered himself out.


Doesn’t he look so sweet?? Peaceful even. And if you knew Jacob peaceful is not something he does often.


We talked to the neighbors, the snow plow driver, and the back hoe driver.

We kept the fire roaring all day long.


Princess Fiona loves the fireplace and won’t leave while it is going.

We drank mugs and mugs of tea and hot chocolate (with marshmallows of course).

Finally we settled down with our plates of Pepper Steak (YUM! I will have to share the recipe) and watched American Idol.

We are loving this season! Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and Randy Jackson are hilarious together.

So that is how we spent the day during the Blizzard of 2011.

School is cancelled for Jacob and I again tomorrow. Poor Dan has to go to work. I think I am going to make English muffin bread and Lemon Chicken Pasta with asparagus.

I also want to create a Valentine’s Day craft with Jacob. Maybe we will hit the craft store tomorrow.

I love snow days!
