The Week In Pictures

The third and final storm of last week left more snow than the first two. In some places in Flagstaff they're saying that they got up to five feet! We didn't get quite that much, but still enough to blanket our world in two feet plus of white fluffy stuff. It was beautiful; it was deep; and it gave Tom lots of opportunity to work out his arms and core;).

Since school was cancelled all last week, we had our neighbors, Andrew and Morgan, over after the final storm to play with the kids, build a snowman and a snow cave. I love teenagers!

After being cooped up in the house for too long, boys need to wrestle. I made the mistake of laying down on the floor the other day and was immediately tackled by two rough boys. I avoided any injury by telling the little hooligans that Daddy was going to be home soon and that they could beat him up. Yeah! Tom was totally outnumbered. Two on one. Three on one. But thankfully he's big and tough and prevailed.

Monday night was not a good night for my honey. CRUNCH! Our new-to-us Altima was totalled. Tom had pulled forward to make a left hand turn without properly checking around the big snow berm on the side of the road. Big, big bummer! Thankfully, my honey is just fine! A car is replaceable, my honey...not so much.

This afternoon after naps we went sledding with the kids. We found a great hill just North of us. The mountain view was beautiful and the sledding was great. We even had a snowball fight that involved Tai Lung Daddy, Po-Boy Sammy, Po-Girl Livvy and Ben and I, we were townsfolk pigs. Can you tell we like Kung Fu Panda?

That is a ridiculous amount of snow! Flag puts Colorado to shame. I love the pictures of the kids in their snow gear, too cute!


P.S. Sorry to hear about your least no one was hurt!
