Gavin isn't a big fan of winter, snow and cold weather! I think it may have to do with the fact that he has to wear a hat.
"Why did you put this thing on me again?! I am SO taking this thing off!"
"Great! That didn't go as planned! Now I can't even see!"
I don't blame him! I am not a winter person myself, and hats and coats are something I avoid at all costs! Unfortunately, me and Gavin are going to have to keep wearing our hats and coats for awhile.....cause we got snow dumped on us lastnight!
I know a lot of the country got snow as well. Here's what it looks like around here:
Jake this morning, running back from the neighbor's house, after asking if he needed help digging his car out of all the snow:
Joel running the snowblower:
Jake helping him:
Caleb heading to shovel:
Caleb watching Nolan do most of the work.....as usual:
And, him deciding to help after I reminded him to do so:
What it looked like when I opened our front door:
Pictures of all the snow we got:
Snow cascading off our roof:
Some of the digging Joel and the boys did:
Joel usually leaves for work by 7:00 or 7:30, but with all the snow in our driveway and on the roads, he couldn't leave until after 10:00.....there was a lot of digging out to do before he could get the car down our driveway! He said that when he opened the garage door, there was a drift of snow up against it that measured past his waist!
The meteorologists are saying this is like the blizzard of 1978.....which yielded over 16 inches in a 24 hour period. So, there was a lot of digging out do do around here! I'm so thankful to have a hard-working hubby and 3 strong boys to dig us out! Thanks to them, me and Gavin were able to stay inside where it was warm!
But, after all their hard work, they were rewarded with lots of playtime in the snow.....which they loved!
And then, yummy hot chocolate afterwards, to warm up! YUM!
So, what did Gavin do?!
He snuggled with his blanket and with his Momma!
Maybe all this snow isn't so bad after all! :) Getting to spend a day with my boys at home, and not having to get out in it makes for quite an enjoyable day!
Hope all of you are enjoying the beautiful sight of this winter wonderland, and are all staying nice and warm! :)
