The Big Snow

Two big storms in the last week. The first Friday night 2/5 and Sat. 2/6 leaving about 20 inches of snow. The second Wed. 2/10 leaving 24 inches.

The boys are in heaven. Three days off school and plenty to do. They have been busy building tobbogan runs with banks and ramps as well as forts, igloos and tunnels. They have also had time with neighbors including an awesome snowball fight. Just ask Nick. Inside there have been fires in the fireplace, hot chocolate, roasted hot dogs, toasted marshmallows etc... Yes the house is beginning to look like a ski lodge. The only problem is that when we leave our gloves by the fire to dry, Dexter steals them.

Tonight we took in a movie. Percy Jackson - The Lightening Theif. The boys loved it.

Tomorrow I'd like to get them to Valley Forge Park for some serious sledding down big hills.

No school on Monday because of Presidents' day. It is like an unplanned mini vacation and we are taking full advantage of it.
