Snowmageddon 2014

Let me start by saying a I. AM. NOT. A. HOMEBODY. To each his own but I rarely go a day without leaving the house, even if it's just for a diet coke from McDonald's. ;) Last Saturday the grocery shelves were bare and everyone was in a big hurry to prepare for this HUGE snow storm we were projected to get...well they were telling the truth. BIG TIME! We woke up Sunday morning to *LOTS, like 12 inches* of snow on the ground. It had come in a matter of hours from start to finish and then to top it off within 12 hours after the snow the temps. were -22 with windchill. Not cool folks, not cool...we don't live somewhere that's prepared for things like this. I am pretty sure the last time they said something of this amount had happened was 1982...ya not fun. Places closed and we were stuck indoors...for 5 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At first it was kind of fun with Mark off work, schools closed, and just hanging out but within hours a while it wasn't fun anymore. I wanted out! It was Sunday...then came Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday....by Wednesday afternoon Mark decided the roads were good enough to drive his car and let me have the Yukon back so the kids and I could escape! PRAISE THE LORD!

While we were stuck inside we did a lot of fun activities, stayed in our pj's, as well as watched a lot of tv and ipad. ;( I know, mom of the year award right here, baby! Here are a few pictures I snapped of us during the days of being cooped up inside...

We used the roll paper to trace our bodies. Then the kids colored their body and drew on their faces...

We snuggled...a lot!

I drew their names and shapes on paper and they lined up goldfish making the shapes and tracing their names...then ate ALL the goldfish! ;) 



We also had a chance to write all our "thank you" notes for Christmas presents...



We played with the reusable habit/animal stickers...Wyatt LOVES them so much. ;)
 We also had a picnic of scrambled eggs in Wyatt's room while watching a little Chip'N Dale Rescue Rangers...does anyone else remember that show? We have the episodes on DVD and the kids LOVE them!

How has the weather been where you live? 
Cold, rainy, warm...have you done anything special to occupy your kiddos?!?! 

Can't close out the post without a shout out to my BIL Kyle...Happy Birthday to you!!! We love you and hope you have an amazing birthday...
