|The snow goes over the fence in our front yard, and above our mailbox!|
Jim was outside shoveling for a large portion of the weekend. Unfortunately, being 36 weeks pregnant made me less than useful in the snow clean up, so I had to help by doing things like making endless cups of coffee. Jim shoveled for 3 hours yesterday, to get to the end of our driveway. And then today, he was out building a hill in our backyard for Lilly to sled down. I don't know who enjoyed the sledding more--Jim or Lilly.
Jack enjoyed most of the snow from inside, although he did have fun venturing outside for small increments of time, to put his finger in the snow (he pulls off his mittens the second you put them on him). But every time he fell, which was inevitable given that the snow was higher than him, his hands would land in snow and he'd burst into tears. We learned that Jack doesn't like it when his hands are cold, and since you can't explain to a 16 month old that the answer to this is mittens, Jack enjoyed watching the blizzard from inside.
