The snow we got two weeks was pretty much nothing. You could see the grass through it. The snow we're getting hit with today is HUGE! Well, for us it's huge and since it's been all over the news I'm guessing that most people agree with me :)
This is our front yard this morning (when we had about half the snow we got):
There might be some yard under there somewhere.
The snow finally stopped tonight though we may get more through the night - I can't keep up with the weather forecast or the totals but we had to have gotten somewhere around 2 feet which for us is a LOT.
Our deck is covered in about 4 feet of snow because of snow drifts - this is what we found when we opened our back door:
All this snow really puts us in the Christmas spirit. We rarely get a white Christmas around here so to have so much snow just days before and to know we'll have some white on the ground next Friday is great.
But to add to our Christmas celebrations we were able to enjoy the kids Christmas program on Thursday night. They did a great job!
Caleb's class sang and recited Luke 2:1-20 from memory - they did a great job - we are so proud of Caleb :)
Kaitlyn's class sang and then did an instrumental - Kaitlyn got to play her keyboard for the first time. She's still learning but I think it's great that she's taken a liking to learning how to play an instrument.
All the students singing together:
Did the girls pay attention?
They were too busy running around being crazy and by crazy I mean seriously cute :)
They met a friend and became fascinated with a hole in the floor. Tell me again why I bother with toys?!
I tried to get a photo of the girls facing foward but it was impossible!! They're not so much into pictures these days - or maybe it's the fact that mom tries to take pictures of them all the time.
I hope you too find ways to get into the Christmas spirit :) And if you're anywhere on the northern east coast be safe and enjoy the snow!
