Yesturday, Christian and I walked to the park and played for a while. I am fighting a cold, so when we got back I took a nap. When I woke up it was snowing again and I don't think it has stopped since. We have not been outside yet, but the TV News says there is a foot of snow in Downtown Portland and we are at a higher elevation.
From looking out our windows I can report that our gardens are fully covered. The kids toys are almost all covered on the back patio and the lawn furniture is just sticking out.
After I finish blogging, I am going to make gingerbread waffles for the family, then Christian and I will go outside and shovel out the area around the hen house. If we put out water it will freeze, so we are going to go through the vegetable crisper and find some stuff to send out. They can get water from eating fresh produce.
By the time this thing ends, we will have as many snow pictures as we do beach pictures. The one thing that is missing is Liam. He will not go out in it. It would be up to his waist now if he did. I will have to take some indoor photos of him and do a scrapbook page on how much he hates the snow.
I have a feeling he will be moving to a place with palm trees as soon as he can. He loves the beach so much it might be a tropical island.
Here are my pictures from Sunday (the other boy in the snow angel picture is our neighbor, who Christian is going to play chess with today)......
