The area schools were out Thursday and some were still out yesterday. The icy roads and bridges are dangerous, and since our temperatures are still not rising out of the twenties, there is no sign of thawing today either.
If you live "up north", you will probably laugh at our snow, but here are some pictures of our big event.

Clay, Leah, and Sam playing on the fort
our pretty Christmas tree! It is sitting on the back patio.....every time the wind blows it over, the children stand it back up.

My children all have warm clothes, coats, hats, socks, gloves, scarves, and boots....I have no idea why they felt compelled to play in the snow in their pajamas, bare feet or crocs with no socks, no coat most of the time......but they did!
Leah and Sam scooping up snow to eat. They made snow ice cream, and they kept making a snowball to bring inside to play with----they would put it in a bowl, and sit at the kitchen table playing with it until it melted. I also have frozen snowballs in my freezer!
Sam, properly dressed for snow play!
Notice the single glove!
I see that the carrot nose fell off!
