Snowy Pictures!

It finally really snowed here!! The kids were so excited to find that there was more than just the previous day’s dusting of snow on the ground. Igor said it was too cold outside to play, and Rosie only stayed out for a few minutes, but Henry and Ada had tons of fun. It was so bright out that Ada couldn’t see to smile. Hah! Yes, my two year old is almost the same size as my five year old. She’s...

March’s Blizzard.

The snow is insane. We usually get 2-3 inches at a time. Five inches here is considered a lot of snow. This time…we got about 18-20 inches in 24 hours. Insane My county has done a really good job of clearing the roads. We aren’t typically prepared for so much snow, so our county only owns four plows for hundreds of miles of road, but this time they hired private workers to plow. The Toyota factory has miraculously let workers not...

Last Week’s Snow.

We just got blanketed by a ton of snow. Probably one of the biggest snow falls we’ve ever had around here in years. I think we got more than 15 inches! It’s heavy wet snow too, so the trees are all bent over. Luckily we haven’t had power outages. I can’t wait to take the kids out in it to play once Henry wakes up from his nap! Here are pictures of the kids standing on the frozen over snow last...

I will go down with this ship.

And I won’t put my hands up and surrender There will be no white flag above my door I’m in love, and always will be It started last night while I was putting cookie dough on a pan to bake. I was standing in the kitchen in front of the stove and I heard a strange scuffling noise. It sounded almost like a mouse. We had a mouse in the kitchen last year when we first moved in, and the cats...

Sledding, Kentucky Style.

Yesterday evening this happened: I don’t think these pictures accurately portray the size of our sledding hill. It is massive. Almost like a mountainside. So steep it was difficult to walk up it! In this video we started at the bottom third of the hill because Ada was too tired to walk up any further. Tyler made the video. In this video Tyler tried sledding. I didn’t realize that he had only been sledding once before. I don’t think he had...

White Stuff.

It really snowed! Leave it to Ada to lock us out of the house when it’s 10 degrees outside with a foot of snow on the ground. We were going to go out and play for just a few minutes. Our old Victorian door knob has this strange lock where you push a button on the door jamb area of the door to turn the lock on. It stays locked and you can open the door from the inside, but once...

Snowy.

This morning someone rang our doorbell at 7 a.m., when it was still dark out. Tyler stumbled out of bed because the dogs started barking and the baby started crying. He went downstairs and opened the door only to find someone wanting to shovel the snow on our sidewalk for booze money. In the dark. On Saturday morning. Are you kidding? By then the baby was awake. The dogs wanted to go out. The sun wasn’t even up yet. I don’t...
