Snow Day

As anyone in the Midwest knows today is a big snow day! It is impossible to go out and measure the snow fall because the wind is so strong and the drifts are huge; however, the news is reporting 10 inches for us. Our temperatures are in the low single digits and the wind chills are around -15. It is COLD! It's a huge bummer for a toddler that wants nothing more than to go out and play in the snow. Thankfully we've been able to occupy Luke and distract him a bit. It's been awesome to have Troy home even if he is working from home. And his office is also closed tomorrow which is a big deal--a weekend in the middle of the week (sort of)=YAY! So the plan for the next few days is to stay inside, stay warm and enjoy some extra family time.
The backyard
The sandbox
The frontyard--the only evidence of the street is the curb visible because of the mailboxes blocking the snow
A must have on a snowy day (along with the grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup we had for lunch)
Working from home
A bit of chill time on the couch
