This morning we woke up to a lot of snow. We've been out of town for the only two other snow storms this winter, so it was pretty exciting for us. John tried getting out at 5:30 but he got his car stuck and couldn't get mine out either. He tried waiting for the plows to come but they weren't here by 9 and so he decided to give it another try. While he was leaving Lori came to pick Eleanor up (she has 4 wheel drive) and together they both tried for a good 20 minutes to get out of our neighborhood. Finally, John was able to get up the hill but Lori was still getting stuck. I told her to just bring Eleanor home and decided we were going to have a snow day. Eleanor thought it was hilarious that they were stuck and was pretty excited to skip school.
I'm not going to lie. I love any excuse to be lazy and just hang around the house in our pjs. The kids played and I finished Eleanor's year six book and nearly finished Amelia's year three. Their little books are a lot of work but I love doing them and hope they love them just as much when they get older. It was a lot of fun looking back at photos from 2011. Eleanor has grown quite a bit but I was shocked to see how much Amelia has changed. She was just a baby during most of 2011.While working on their books I realized I need to start taking more photos, so I grabbed my camera and did just that.
Amelia loves playing with her pet shops and is really into lining them up.
I love these photos of Amelia. She is one crazy little girl when she gets on her donkey!
