Who would have guessed that our humble little mountains would be receiving nearly a foot of snow just a week before Christmas. (and just days before winter). But alas, last Friday the snow began to fall, and fall, until it coated our little mountain and created a true winter wonderland.
We decided to venture into the snow with Haley on Friday afternoon. Singing "If all the snow flakes were ice cream and milk shakes oh what a snow that would be."
But she was definitely bundled for the occasion. Reminiscent of A Christmas Story.
The next day we got bundled again and headed to out friends house. We of course traveled on foot since the roads were not plowed and we had no chance of getting out car up the driveway.
Although many people insistd that we should take her sledding, Zach and I decided it would be best to wait until she can at least sit up.
On Sunday we stayed inside in out PJs all day after church and the relocated church Christmas party were cancelled.
Most of the streets were plowed, so this cop was busy at work ensuring that no one sped through the intersection...
Actually this is just an excellent example of how the cops in our town leave cars at random locations to scare residents and vacationers into slowing down. This car even has a dummy in the drivers seat, but I couldn't get a good photo due to the glare. I love my town.
Haley and I went on a quest for a good snow shovel, when we returned we watched Zach clear a path so he could go to work the next day and so we could get out and go to the grocery store.
I tried to assist in the shoveling process, but my attempts were weak in comparison. Luckily right as Zach finished clearing a path, a neighbor with a backhoe offered to clear the entire driveway for free. Not the best timing, but an appreciated service all the same. When he was done we returned the shovel and finally made it to the grocery store.
I leave you with the outfit Haley was going to wear for tacky Christmas bowling.
I realized it's hard for a baby to be tacky since they're so darn cute in everything.
