This is from Friday, when we got almost a foot of snow:
And I'm sad to say... it's official. Phil the Groundhog says we have six more weeks of winter.
I'm trying to embrace this cold and messy weather (just like I'm embracing my small space :) so yesterday we went over to Drew and Caroline's house to play in the snow and build a snow fort. I had given Drew some snow tools for his birthday in December, so it was fun to put them to use! Saralyn (their mom) was inside with Eli. Mike (their dad) came out later, but I didn't get any pictures then because I went inside after Drew got me with a snowball in the face and I was freezing!! (side note - the house is getting a new roof, so there were roofing materials in the front yard that helped create the fort)
And totally unrelated... I had to post this cute picture of Eli with my friend Meijken from earlier in the day at a baby shower. She was sweet to hold him while I munched on the tasty food!
