We’ve had a great winter so far. Not like last year where we hardly got any snow. This year we’ve gotten lots to play in!

Our snowman we built on Christmas Eve just barely melted on like February 10th. It was awesome. On January 29th and 30th, we got two really awesome snow storms that dumped about 8″ one day and at least 12″ the other. It reminded me of when I was 10 and it snowed and snowed and snowed and by the time it was all over, the snow was up to my chest. In other words, AWESOME. Jeffy and I took turns shoveling the driveway. I have to admit, I have a secret love of shoveling the driveway. I ended up shoveling most of it both days, but that was only because Jeffy helped PUSH a BUS out of our neighbors driveway. It had slid in the snow and got all catywumpus in their driveway and drove over their trash cans. It wasn’t pretty, but Jeffy went over and helped push it a ways so that he could shovel underneath the tires so that it could get some traction. He’s such a stud!

We were lucky enough to have sweet Hannah Banana staying with us during this time and they all had a blast playing together outside. Nathan from next door was over as well. They made snow houses in the big piles of snow that I had shoveled off of the driveway. At first they were trying to make a tunnel through the big pile, but they got distracted and decided houses would be more fun. They were out there for a couple of hours each day working on them and just playing. Ryan followed all of us around and helped me shovel the driveway with his little shovel. So. Much. FUN!
