The Great Blizzard of 2012

At least so far.  The year is still young and it hasn't even gotten to March yet.  We could have a day of more snow than this. 

A shout-out to the White family for selling us their snow blower.  Lee has never had so much fun.  It took him three rounds to clear all the snow off our driveway.  It would have taken him hours without it.  So thank you.

Alaina enjoyed playing in the snow today.  Joya has not played in the snow yet, for two reasons: 1.) I don't have snow clothes for her and 2.) Even if I did, she can't walk.  The Kimble Family Rule is you must walk if you want to play in the snow.  Just a little incentive for her.  Mommy did take her outside and tried to show her how to eat snow.  She thought that it meant that she should feed Mommy snow.  She didn't branch out and try it herself. 

The best place to play was under the tree, because it wasn't so deep there.  All the other places were too hard for her to walk.
The snow comes up to her armpits.

I'm glad we had our snow.  Now maybe we can move on to warmer things.
