Snow Days

I know every Mommy blogger in VB has a post titled similarly from the past couple days, but here's my 2 cents...

We got about 8 in of snow this week. It's been over 20 years since I've seen this kind of snow in our area, so we were all very excited to see all the white blanketing our home on Saturday. We've had a great time, romping out in the snow for the past three days. I told them today that they better make the best of it since it's not likely to stick around much longer. Caleb got a few minutes out in it, but after standing stock still in the snow for about a minute, he promptly threw himself down and had a fit over who-knows-what (scared of the white stuff, can't move, whatever). Then we put him on the girls pink Dora bike at the entrance to the garage and that was enough to placate him for a while. He hasn't been out since Saturday, though, because he's been sick with a fever, poor little guy. Here are some pictures of the last couple days, though, including our micro-snowman, made of a couple of snowballs and some Juniper twigs. I told you guys in NJ that we'll pretty much make a snowman out of anything here in VA, just to say that we did it. The snow's been too powdery for anything better than that, though my neighbor cheated and made a nice 4 footer using a spray bottle to make it stick together :)
