The Blizzard of 2016

Well, we survived the blizzard of 2016. Sure, we had a few bumps, like forgetting to put the mower with the blade in our garage and breaking our shovel, but we lived to tell the tale. That's what's important. We also didn't lose power, our sanity, or any sleep over the blizzard. Priorities, people. 

On a more serious note, we were really blessed not to lose our power. Some people did in this area, which can be scary in such cold conditions. That was a huge blessing for us.

Let me start by saying holy snow, batman. Payton had been watching and watching for snow for about a week before, basically as soon as the warnings were announced that we could get a blizzard. Once the snow was here, Payton didn't even know how to handle herself.
I naturally jumped in and kept the kids entertained. Snow ice cream anyone?
Sprinkles are a necessity with snow ice cream.

We also had snow for breakfast, hot cocoa for snack, stayed in pajamas all day, and baked chocolate chip cookies repeatedly. We turned our back patio into a sledding hill and spent both afternoons sledding the time away. I love snow days.
And the snow kept coming.
It was a blizzard indeed. The hubby got 2 days off work and we loved the extra time with him.
The cats were brought indoors, which was a huge hit with both kids, the adults, and the dogs. Seriously, it was a full house.

Although we are all back to our normal routine now, we are still seeing snow everywhere. I'm guessing it will be hanging around for awhile.
