Snow Much Fun

(I wrote this post this past Sunday as a reflection on the fun we'd had being 'snowed in' and I forgot to post it. And now? Now we're looking down the barrel of ANOTHER snow event! It's officially January)

This past Friday night/ Saturday morning we had a snow storm. Now, I feel like the past three years or so we've had two to three day long snowstorms and storms that drop both ice and snow and knock power out, so this storm, which left us with about 8 inches of powdery snow and a pleasantly sunny Saturday in which to dig out seemed kind of quaint and not particularly threatening. Nevertheless, the weather reports made it sound like a very chilly and very white Armageddon was coming. So Friday morning I headed to the grocery store to pick up the essential life sustaining supplies we'd need in case the storm was truly awful: hot chocolate and bagels. I also dug out a few of our favorite movies..just in case.

As I mentioned, it was a lot of snow, not really a storm. We curled up inside with our movies and books and I kept coming up with reasons to refill everyone's mug with hot chocolate. Oh, who am I kidding, you don't need a reason to have a refill of hot chocolate.

That evening Sean's father and sister came over to go sledding with Aiden and it was so adorable. He had such a fun time and talked nonstop about it all night. Of course, I completely failed to take any pictures of the sledding fun.

I did manage to get a few shots of Aiden playing with Bo. By 'playing' I mean 'attempting to stalk'. Somehow, Bo got away every time.
