The snow started, and we were pretty much glued to the windows. Luckily, we had done our grocery shopping the day before, so all we needed to do was stay warm and enjoy the beautiful snow!
When we woke up Thursday, there was a LOT of snow! It easily reached up to Oliver and Lily's thighs in front of the house.
Laundry basket fun. For some reason, this is one of their FAVORITE things to play with!
Playing on mommy's bed...he was CRAZY wild that day!
Building fort #1 with Taylor...
She tries to occasionally clip Brahm's nails. Luckily, I stopped her after taking this picture. :-)
Snowman Smith came to life Saturday, after the first snow storm stopped and before the second one came...
Brahm and me...
Sunday, before the second storm, we went to El Dorado to go sledding down the HUGE hills on the back side of the dam. Unfortunately, the snow was TOO soft, and we had to push ourselves down. Here is Oliver coming down...
The kids got into the cartoon version of "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe", so that was a favorite over the weekend. Fit in well with the snow, I thought!
Seriously, he loves this spot. Anytime he can be alone, with a snack, he is in toddler-heaven.
Taylor and Mason came over one morning for a change of scenery (and thankfully, Oliver and Lily were able to go next door the day before...just before my mental break-down....) :-)
They watched a movie under the coffee table, played games, and had fun with balloons.
Building fort #2...
This boy LOVES a good mirror session. He plays hide-and-seek with the mirror-version of himself. Pretty funny to watch!
I allowed more than normal amounts of screen time...and I didn't even feel that guilty about it! :-)
It really was a beautiful snow....just incredible.We made bubble goo....cornstarch and hand soap. It was fun to play with for a while!
It's good to have these pictures. We DID have fun together! Joel was able to be home for most of the first 4 days of it, which was so fun. And we'll always remember the Blizzard of Oz 2013!
