On Tuesday morning we got sleet and ice.
A TON OF IT! Ava had fun walking around the back yard discovering the white stuff on the grass.
The temps were in the single digits all week and so the ice never melted. The roads were HORRID.
We managed to make it to the grocery store on Thursday as we were completely out of groceries. Have you ever pushed a shopping cart full of groceries on ice? Ha! It should be a sport.
It was so cold that our pipes froze up and we had no cold water for two days. I'm praising God that we didn't have any busted pipes and they thawed out today!
The weather resulted in school closures all week, which means we were all home, nice and verycozy every day. Sun up. Sun down. I just told Aaron that this week was a little taste of what retirement will be like, but harder since we had to be couped up with a demanding, busy toddler! We actually had a lot of fun just spending time with eachother. Or maybe we bonded because it was us against the child? HAHA!
I know many people hate snow. Especially if you see it every day for months. But for us southern folks, it is magical! And oh my goodness, how beautiful?! Winter is so ugly and brown here, so I loved the new white blanket covering the ugly brown dead stuff.
We went out this morning and made some snow angels.
Aaron had to show Ava how it was done.
Oh well, we had fun making Johnny on our own.
Here is the finished Johnny.
Poor Jerry. Karma stinks sometimes.
And look! I learned how to use the self timer on my camera today!!
