Saturday was a different sort of day. Between 25 and 29 inches of snow will do that. Measurements vary by measurer. What kind of homeschool are we running here? Any which way, that's the most snow we've had since we've lived here.
|This measurement was in the morning, several hours before it stopped snowing.|
That much snow makes taking care of animals interesting. I've never quite had such a workout just getting to the guinea coop. And Calvin reminded me of some crazy sea creature with his leapings through the snow. He had so much fun.
|Watch out, Mom! Here I come!|
I'm not so sure the cats liked the snow, but they stayed cozy on the front porch.
|Hey, Mom, can you put in a wood stove?|
The toddler did NOT like having cold fingers.
|What is this stuff?|
The vehicles were playing hide-and-seek.
|The Suburban was nearly covered when all was said and done.|
Of course, the kids had a blast playing in the snow even if it wasn't packing or sledding snow. Basically they tried to shovel snow or walk through it. This little girl basically just sat in one spot the whole time eating snow.
|She's so intent on eating snow she won't even acknowledge Mommy's plea to face the camera.|
I used the time the children and my husband were out in the snow to strap the baby in a carrier and take a few pictures from the comfort of my warm home.
|Mr. Cardinal was pretty but shy. He flew away as soon as a opened the door.|
|Mr. Titmouse tolerated my camera a little better.|
|I had time to mix up a pot of frothy hot cocoa.|
|And take a really bad picture of some good cookies.|
Before coming in for hot cocoa and cookies, the girl finally acknowledged me.
|Hi, Mom. I'm busy eating snow.|
