Snow Day - AT LAST!

I'm still a week behind in my posts. Once we got back from Maine, I had another round with the flu bug for a day or two, then about the time I was recovering, I had the joy of another kidney stone attack (I've had them since I was 16) and spent a day or two in the ER and met a wonderful pain-killing drug that knocked me semi-conscious, not necessarily a good place to be with 2 and 3/4 year old twins! Nonnie, Evan, Mason and Lory handled my care and the children while I was out for the count (it all happened on a weekend, when Gary works the most).

And when I awoke from my drug induced coma on Monday morning, there was...what!?! Snow....not a leetle snow, but a TON of snow. Over a foot!

I've been waiting for snow for over two years! And the first time we get it, I can barely wipe the drool off my chin and wake up enough to see it!! lol! Oh - the irony!

About mid-day, I managed to get up and get Austin and Logan dressed for a few minutes out in the snow.

And they played some with their friends, too!

The four Amigos!
I personally enjoyed their indoor snow attire...the underlayers...

One onesie in and one onesie out!
I think these pictures are a trip - Austin and Logan are only within 1/4 inch or less height-wise of each other. Doesn't look it here, though!
I also managed to get a video of them indoor sledding....

Luckily, by Tuesday I was able to get out and actually get the boys sleigh-riding down some hills and we went out again on Wednesday. They LOVEd it. They zoomed down the hills all by themselves and carried their little toboggans back up all by themselves! Oddly enough, they did not sleep better as everyone told me they would!! Nope - actually less sleep! Too wired, I guess?
By Friday, we were enjoying 70 degree weather again! Today, 80 something. Snow all gone. But it was the Perfect Storm! Came in quick, dumped a bunch of white stuff, everyday was perfect for either snowmen building or sledding and now it's all gone (none of those ugly, dirty patches that stick around forever. )
Can't wait for another 10 to 15 years to go by before we get our next snow!

Glad you ar feeling better. The boys looked like they really enjoyed the snow. Mine love it but when ewe gett it here in Ohio it's ususally too cold to enjoy it. Go figure.

Heidi said...

How fun for you to get snow! Wish we would get some. :( The boys look so cute in their underlayers. I'm glad you are feeling better.

Laurie said...

I love the indoor sledding. I remember doing that myself! I soooo wish we would get some measurable snow here! Surely we are due for one! Glad you are feeling better too.

Steph said...

Holy cow!! I am so glad you got your snow!! Finally!! Really BAD timing, though! :(

I hope you are feeling better. That just sounds AWFUL.

I was laughing out loud at that video. I swear those boys have a layer of bouncy springs under their skin!

Gwen, Jenny, & Mia said...

So glad you got some snow!! It looks like the boys had a lot of fun!

I can't wait for our snow to be gone and you can't wait to get it!

I am so glad everyone is feeling better.

Van was all giggles watching the step sledding...I know he's heading for the stairs now to try it out. He was also practicing his new favorite word "more" as he watched them over and over again...
How was your sale? Are we gonna try and shop again this weekend or are you done?
