That's a Lot of Snow!


To put this in perspective....  These chairs are in a sunken play area in our back yard that is bordered by lumber.  I had to drag my legs through the snow to make a path my 2 year old could walk on (he was dying to play in the snow!!), but it was such a powdery deep snow, he had trouble moving around even with my path.  I think this is the snow storm my boys will tell their kids about one day.  We're still stuck at our house....  this is the one time living a mile off of a paved road is not so much fun :)  We've been doing all kinds of Christmas baking and card making and movie watching though, which sometimes you run out of time for in the last few days before Christmas, which is nice.
