Winter Blues

According to the news, by January 21st last year we had already had 31 inches of snow in NY. The average for the young month is 9 inches. Saturday, we got about 5-6. So all in all, not so bad. But still unwelcome! I was enjoying our seasonably warm winter until this hit.
But we tried to make the best of it. Since it was Saturday, we didn't have to be anywhere. So Matt started a fire.
And at about 8AM our house already looked like this. Notice Noah, standing at the train table, surveying the damage. We were lazy for a bit. Watched some movies.
Played with some "new" toys that we brought out from storage.
And just basically hung out (and for some reason, we hang out in the kitchen a lot).
Every 10 seconds, Matthew asked if we could go outside and go sledding. I told him no 50 million times. Then I finally told him yes. Think he was happy about that?
We bundled up a-la Randy in A Christmas Story.
Matthew was happy just to walk in the fluffy stuff.
I took him to the school for a little sledding. And we stayed out until our noses were runny and we couldn't feel our hands.
Then we warmed up inside and Matthew busted my chops to play my iPad.
Today we're scheduled to get close to 50 degrees. That's more my winter style! The snow was a nice change for the day, but I'm over it!

We got some snow this weekend, too. My husband took the girls out sledding yesterday - and they had the best time. But, just like you are - I'm over it! Took me 30 mins to drive 4 miles into work this morning...AHHHH!!!

We went away this weekend and missed the snowstorm. I wanted to be here for one little snow. I hope we won't be getting much more. I already took a look at my roof and wondered if I have to get back up there and shovel. I hope you have a great week my friend! It looks like you had fun!

We got hit with two back to back storms last year (the same ones you got I'm sure)and we also had about 30 inches of snow this time last year. We got 7 inches last Saturday & it's already gone. Yesssss.

I love Louisiana winters and the fact that they are not winters at all. I am a warm weather gal!
