M: sissy where are we going today?
S: not anywhere, it's still snowing.
M: are we stuck?
S: yep, we are snowed out.
today is day 4 of the snow still being on the ground, very icy roads, all of the schools closing, and not leaving the house. the only change is that eric had to go to work this morning. three days of was nice though.
day 2. we just stayed inside. did not even go out to play in the snow. it is a chore to get them all layered up and to get all those wet, cold clothes off afterwards. and it was ridiculously cold, a high of 16 or something. so we spent our time watching movies, playing games and cooking. We have made chicken pot pie, bread, beef stew, chocolate cake and will make chili tonight. i also have been cleaning and washing jamies and warm clothes in the sink. let me tell you how much fun that has been. our washer is frozen and somebody keeps having accidents. awesome.
day 3 we ventured back outside for some more time in the snow. they had more fun and were able to stay out much longer.
he of coarse didn't like it anymore after he got too cold. later when i asked him if he liked playing in the snow he said no. i asked him if he liked snow and he said no. then i asked if he wanted to play in the snow again tomorrow and he said yes! silly boy.
maybe today will be the last day...
