snow - part 1

Most of you already know about the crazy snow storm we've had in the last week. The "arctic blast" came through Portland last weekend and pretty much closed down the town for a few days. We are not used to snow here, and definitely not prepared for over a foot of it. Good thing Grandma Carol made it out before the big storm hit, although you can read here that it was not the easiest journey.

Here are some pictures from the first bit of snow two weekends ago during Grandma Carol's visit. We spent most of our time inside as the girls were not fans of the wind blowing snow in their faces. That and the bout of stomach flu that hit Maryn on Friday, Lucy on Sunday and Chris and I on Monday night. We were so lucky to have Grandma here to take care of us!

Grandma Kathy and Grandpa Doug stopped by for a visit

Grandma had the brilliant idea to bring the snow inside. We had indoor snowball fights and made miniature snowmen.

We decided it would be safer to walk rather than drive to Grandma Kathy and Grandpa Doug's for an early dinner. It was in the teens with the windchill. Brrr!

Maryn enjoyed baking with Grandma - especially licking the beater!

Thanks for the pics. I've been thinking about you with all that snow hitting you guys. (I even mentioned you in my latest blog.) Hope your white christmas was wonderful.
