Enough Snow Already!!

We have more snow right now then I have ever seen in my lifetime! It is crazy! We got about 2 feet on Saturday and another 2 feet yesterday! The wind is wicked and it is creating drifts, some as high as Jason. Jason had to dig out an area for Molson to go pee, the snow is as tall as he is. We kept saying that there was too much snow to go out in as it far taller than the kids. We decided today to brave it and take them outside, it was so much fun!!
Get ready for a bunch of pictures ....
Here are some of just the snow around the house:

We have been trying for over two months now to get a sled for the kids. They have not had them in the stores so we have one from when Jason was a kid. We got inventive and used a laundry basket with a dog leash for a handle. For going down the hills we used an extra toddler mattress (it is water proof and slides great)... yes we are fancy people.

Of course Molson enjoyed himself too:

All in all though both Jack and Bella had a great time. I figured we would be outside for about 20 minutes at the most. It turns out because we were playing in our driveway the tall mounds piled up on the sides blocked the winds from the kids and they didn't really notice the wind much. Bella did not want to go in and cried. Once we got them in though it was nap time and they were asleep in about 10 seconds... I love the snow! (I am sure I will take back that statement when I have to go out in it next)

This picture pretty much sums up Bella's reaction to the snow.... she was running yelling "wee"... she says that when she is happy

Jason's parents came up to play and both Jack and Bella were sitting in the skid loader... Jason said he is going to teach them how to use it soon so they can plow the driveway. I told him that it was fine by me, if Jack can use it then he will be able to go to work with him
