snow, Snow, SNOW!!

We were snowed in today!! Sears closed so Jeff stayed home, e's school closed, and I got to work from home (our office was closed but we update information related to available resources in all types of disasters/situations- bright and early and all day/night long).

This was the scene outside our house.
The good 'ol postal service "in sleet, snow..."
We stayed in nearly all day and watched SEVERAL movies: "beast'" aka Beauty and the Beast, Alice and Wonderland (a new one for e), Dora (as in the explorer), Veggies (as in Veggie Tales), another Veggies, Aladdin, followed by The Proposal (while e napped), Cinderella (new to e), Dora, Veggies, and Clue (jeff finally got to pick).
After E's nap we bundled up and went outside.

E only went outside because he got to wear his favorite boots. Once outside he refused to leave the porch. He wasn't interested in playing in the snow. So back inside we went, gladly.

Monday night I spent 2 hours at United on Judge Ely, I refused to go to Walmart. United always has great "meal deals" (buy one item get the rest of the items for the meal free). The meal deal was: buy 2lbs of stew meat, get bag of carrots, bag of potatos, and stew mix for free- $6= yummy dinner!

{first attempt}

Not bad for my first try.
All in all, today was a wonderful snow day!

  1. Yeah-yummy too!
    I loved being home all of us today too. It was a great day.
    We went no where and my kids loved the snow-all but Alyssa my oldest-she loved staying in and watching movies while drinking hot cocoa!
    Happy Monday.
