SNOW DAY.......

Snow day today for sure and then some! It has yet to stop snowing since it started yesterday in the AM. I have never in my life seen this much snow in my yard and I have lived in Ohio, Michigan, Montana, and Washington State. How much is this much? As of 3:23 PM I am at 24+ inches! Look at the pictures and see what we have going on here! Well I would love to write more, but I have another 4 or 5 inches to shovel again.

Last night around 10 PM
This AM around 9

Shoveling the driveway
Getting Oliver ready to play in his first snow storm

Susie, Oliver, Emily, and Xavier

This was actually earlier but his hair was so fun that I thought it should go up too.

Of course Isabel is here too.

Okay so we HAVE been HERE....

Okay so this is way later than intended but here goes... We went to the midwest right after my last post. We stayed and had a lovely time in Indiana, Chicago and Detroit. We visited family and friends and was a whirlwind of activity including Shed Aquarium, Chicago Cubs game, wisdom teeth out (for me) and more. So here are pictures from select events after our return, including the start of the remodel of our house (the inside anyway.)
OH YEAH, the arrival of ISABEL WAS RATHER LARGE SINCE IT HAPPENED AT HOME... If you want the crazy story, call us... or e-mail.... or wait till I post it here later :)
