Snowdays...

Unexpected holidays!  We have had two days in a row to just be...and it's been wonderful.  I can't believe both our works were closed Monday and Tuesday.  The ice paralyzed everything this morning.  I am very thankful that I work somewhere that can close unlike the hospital, where you have to figure out how to get there to relieve staff.  I have gone in for many shifts with a bag packed just in case I couldn't leave because of weather, we would sleep in the empty beds...fun stuff!

We got about 3 inches of snow Monday and then about 1/4 inch of ice last night.  It looks like an icy winter wonderland outside today. 
Not a lot was accomplished these past two days, but we had fun.  I am sure the clinic will be open tomorrow, Joe is headed to work, but the kids are still out of school.


Here's a few pictures to share of the fun!


  Joe has his overalls on because he spent most of these two days in his shop working on a 
TV stand and shelves for the den that he's building from MDF...
okay, maybe someone accomplished a lot. 
Nate had to wear his overalls too.


Em just can't miss out on hugging.


The kids built a "little snowman because we only had a little snow"
Nate came and asked for the carrot, Em had plucked the Holly berries.
