#Snolycrap Days 4 and 5

Snow Day #4: No new snowfall overnight! 
Our patio chairs are completely covered under all of that snow!
Delicious breakfast in the works: Egg, Biscuit and Sausage Gravy Casserole!  It was SO good!
Getting ready to roll a snowman!
Because we can!  Eliza is such a good girl :)
I don't know when we'll ever get mail again...  Sigh...  I hope my birthday cards can be delivered IN MAY!
King of the Snow Mound!
Our little hill in the backyard is PERFECT for Graham!

Such a good big brother bringing the sled back up the hill for the little brother :)
We spent our time today shoveling (mostly Josh), sledding, making a snowman, working on the tunnels in our ginormous snowpile, napping, braving the outside world to run to the grocery store, and another evening spent with fun friends eating yummy food and playing games!  Graham was not pleased with the turn of events of going to sleep at Miss Teresa's, but my choice eventually prevailed so we could stay for one more game of Ticket to Ride :)  You know, since we already knew school had been changed from a 2-hour delay to closed for Monday...
Snow Day #5: Back out to play in the snow!  I do love how the kids don't seem to tire of all of this snow... The huge pile in front of the house is very convenient for hours of snow play, if nothing else!
Check out that cool tunnel through the pile!
We mixed up some cool snow paint in squirt bottles and decorated all of this snow that seems to be sticking around for a while...
Josh did some more shovelling and I finally got on top of the snow mound!  It was quite high and VERY solid.

A little slide was even worn in on the side of the snow pile
Trying to get the carrot to stick...
Buggle in a tunnel!
Kings of the mountain!

Catching a snowball while in a tunnel!
Throwing snowballs at Daddy!
Homemade Snow Cream!

Snow Cream with strawberry syrup, sprinkles and a cherry on top!
Snow Cream approval!
Between playing outside outings Josh did our taxes and I cleaned up Mimi's room for her upcoming arrival on Thursday!!! Early bedtimes for kiddos after a couple of late nights, so that meant more games, a second batch of Adult Snow Cream, and catching up on shows. At 11pm on last night school was already cancelled for Wednesday and at least a 2-hour delay for Thursday...
