Snow, Snow and more Snow

Our snow began yesterday afternoon and looked like this around 3:00

This morning I woke up to this.

This is the back door. This is not ground level this is at
the top of five steps which leads to our patio
in the back, which was full of this.

and out front...


Please pretend you do not still see my icicle lights,
which we have not had an opportunity to take down because
we keep getting blasted with snow.

Later in the morning my husband and older son
ventured out to continue to tackle the every ending
driveway shoveling. My husband kept going out last night
along with one of the boys in order to not have to start fresh
with 26" of snow on the ground.

Yes, I realize he is in a light jacket and yes
I insisted he put on his winter coat and was repeatedly
informed of how hot his coat made him feel.
I gave up....

Here is William following in his fathers foot steps.
He too would not wear a coat same excuse.
Now keep in mind both of them are 6' 3" so the photo does
give you an indication of the amount of shoveling they did.

While they were shoveling I was inside making them this.

with a side of this

and a whole lot of this

and voila - a breakfast fit for champions who have shoveled
more snow than they ever want to see again.

Later in the morning Lance and I ventured out to take some
more photos and to let him finally play in the snow.
Because of course I am the worstest mother
in the whole wide world for making him wait.
Do I get an award for that??? Just saying

You can see in the smile on his face he feels
like he just climbed Mt. Everest.
Who am I to shatter his dream and remind him
it is just the pile of snow at the end of our driveway.

We continued on up the hill and he continued to climb up
various mountains of snow until he got stuck and
I had to perform my save and rescue.

Still didn't stop him
he still continued to climb the mountains of snow.

I was able to take this picture
of the front our house as we walked up the hill.

and here is some of the scenery up the hill.
I love the way the snow looks on the trees.

and here is a photo of me and my bestest little buddy ever
heading back home.
