Snowed in

Monday, December 21, 2009
Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you've most likely heard about the snow storm that pounded the east coast over the weekend. Here at the Jersey shore, we have 24 inches, a record amount for this time of year. We rarely see any type of snow accumulation until mid- to late January.

I have to say, I'm not a big fan. Of snow. Of winter. Just don't like it. I do like an occasional snowfall. Enough to make everything look pretty, but not restrict my activities or hinder my schedule. I like to be able to carry on as usual. This snowfall was debilitating. Snowed in for 2 days. So, what did we do? Made the best of our situation. We took the kids outside to play in the snow several times. Baked lots and lots of cookies. Made lots and lots of ornaments.

It was actually good to be snowed in. The weather presented us with the opportunity to do the things that we probably would have rushed around to do on Wednesday night.

Family fun...
Getting lost in 2 feet of snow...
Making snow angels...
Making ornaments...My often impatient child was actually very patient and helpful with her little sister! :)

I'm saving our baking pictures for a separate post!!
