Stormy


The window above my kitchen sink:

Well everyone, we are in the middle of a bona fide Nor'easter at the moment. I don't know if I've ever seen or heard so much wind in a 24-hour period before! Yesterday they said we'd get 2-4 inches but it's more like a foot, plus with all the wind it's drifting a lot too. So, it's a real Winter Wonderland around here.

I walked around the house taking a bunch of pictures both inside and out. I guess I was excited to see how our new surroundings looked in the snow. Unfortunately our car is not the best in the snow and we had a bit of a treacherous time getting home from church and then over to my parents for leftovers yesterday. By then it looked like the snow was coming down sideways.
When we left for church in the early afternoon it was just barely starting and was pretty heavy by the time we got out, even though they just had Sacrament Meeting and cancelled all the rest of the meetings so we were only there for an hour and a half.

Doesn't my house look cute in the snow?

This is the house across the street, it looks really pretty too.

The view down the street.

Our backyard gives you a good idea of how snowy it is out there.








We are doing what we can to keep ourselves entertained while being cooped up in the house all day.




Today I watched the movie Camille on TV. It was kind of bizarre and sad but then had this beautiful ending that I loved. You should watch it, I was very surprised at how much I liked it, and I'd never heard of it before at all.


One of my boys actually braved the storm and went out sledding with his friend. He said the snow was swirling in the wind so much it looked like there were clouds on the ground.



I also read an entire book last night and today- "The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance." It was hilarious and insightful and I loved it and couldn't put it down.


My bedroom window covered in frost:

We're drinking lots of hot chocolate. And gorging ourselved on Christmas candy and pie.


Good thing we are prepared with the important things on hand!

This is my other across the street neighbors house. Our neighborhood really is extremely cute.

My husband can't believe these wreaths he hung outside the windows with fishing wire are still hanging on.


I think the worst of it is now over, it's not snowing anymore but it's still really windy. I guess tomorrow we'll go out and make a snowman. My little gal is a total snowbunny and loves to play in it, whethere she's properly dressed or not makes no difference! It's been a fun weekend.

Great photos! Snow is so pretty, too bad you gotta shovel it and it makes driving so hard. Hope you and your family had a great Christmas.
