Winter Wonderland!

We woke this morning to a Winter Wonderland and it is still snowing now.  The kids were and are thrilled... the parents... not as much.  The storm is set to wind down soon and snowfall totals are close to two feet.  We haven't had such a big storm in many years!

This is the view out our front door (as seen from Nathan's height)
Three older kids getting set for their "adventure"... off to dig a trench and build a fort.
Andrew sporting his new snow clothes (Christmas gift).
The two older boys... best buddies at the moment much to the chagrin of Elizabeth who oft times feels a bit left out.
Sweet Elizabeth checking out the snow ramp built by Daddy and the boys last week.  Their sled ride down the hill isn't as fast with all the snow.
Alex demonstrating how high the snow is.  He is standing in the trench they built for their new snow fort.
Alex asked me to take this picture to demonstrate how much snow is on the roof of our house!
Nathan was so excited to discover that the snow was up over the top of the mailbox!

I didn't make any New Year resolutions... cuz I never seem to keep them.  :)  But, I do hope to do more blogging.  I know that I will enjoy looking back on all the pictures and stories some day... and if I don't write things down these days, I don't seem to remember anything!  :)

Oh my goodness, that is a LOT of snow!!! Looks like fun! (unless you happen to be the adult in charge of snow removal of course!)
