Snowed In

Oh my...SNOW! We got hit with a total blizzard today!

We had 16-18 inches when we measured this afternoon. I'm guessing we ended up with about 20 inches in 24 hours!

Tess kept saying "Snowman! Snowman!," so we bundled her up!

We're a little underprepared when it comes to winter clothing, but we made do with her thumbless baby mittens and plastic bags in lieu of snowpants & boots.

All that bundling and she was finished once she caught a few snowflakes on her tongue!

So we spent most of the day keeping warm inside. Tess "helped" me make homemade bread and I made a double batch of soup.

Church is canceled tomorrow and it's going to take us awhile to dig ourselves outta here! Here's hoping all this snow won't keep the Hoopes and Davita from flying in next week!

You weren't kidding! That has to beat even Idaho snow! Looks like you won't be going anywhere for a good while. Making soup and bread and putting grocery sacks on your feet looks like a festive way to spend the day. Enjoy!

What a cute little kitchen helper! I bet Dad died when he saw her wearing plastic bags. I'm surprised he hasn't mailed her a pair of "good" boots already!
