The big event for here today was SNOW! This is our biggest snow of this winter and the kids were very excited. Truth be told, many of us adults were too.
The morning started out with rain, then it turned to sleet. Soon after the sleet started we heard a couple rumbles of thunder and then it changed over to snow.
Austin, Gianni and Michael went out to play for about twenty minutes soon after it started snowing.
Michael got his bike out and pushed it around but never actually got on it and tried to ride.
A few more snowy pictures.
When Doug got home from work this afternoon he took the snowblower and cleared the driveway and made a path to the garage. He had to go back out a second time after dinner and clear it again because the snow was really coming down heavy. Michael stood on the porch and watched him.
Here are a few pictures of the tree right outside our kitchen window. We watch the wildlife in this tree quite a bit while we are eating meals. We see squirrels (four of them) and many birds - bluejays, sparrows, starlings, red-headed woodpecker, snowbirds and others. But at the moment it is just very snowy. In the yard beyond the tree you can also see our bird feeder. This tree and bird feeder are also visible from the playroom window and the kids watch the wildlife from there as well.
Here are a few pictures of the rest of our day.
I brought out the puppets this morning for the first time in a long time. They had gotten lost in the shuffle when we moved and I found them yesterday.
CJ organized a game and I was very impressed with how well he set it up and supervised it.
There was also a game of "store."
And here is one of my favorites - Michael watching the biscuits bake while waiting for lunch.
