sonnetsWe’re all snowed and iced in around here.

Dan’s playing computer games. I’m blogging paying bills. Magoo’s reading sonnets. Seriously, this book of Shakespeare’s Sonnets is his favorite.

When asked to describe the snow, Laylee said it was “frosty”, “melt-able” and “skate-able.”

I made a snow angel and she made a “kid angel.”

We’re having the coldest Seattle night in 8 years tonight (almost as cold as an average winter day in Calgary). We have at least 2 inches of snow so Dan’s entire office took a snow day. The schools are all closed and kids are sledding down our cul-de-sac until they run into the garage door at the bottom.

Good times. Maybe we’ll do a Tip Tuesday tomorrow.

    how fun! I’m jealous. It’s a little too balmy here for my holiday tastes. Would you send a little snow cross country? Thanks!

    It’s a sad commentary on my life that when I saw this big storm on the news last night, the first person I thought of was you, whom I’ve never met except through blog posts:) Hoping you were not in the craptacular traffic but snuggled in warm with your fam.

    Love “kid” angel. I’m actually wishing for snow… (Christmases are always a muddy green here and I grew up in Colorado – now THAT’s snow!) Send some our way?

    Wow, Magoo looks like KID not a baby anymore. All that advanced reading must be aging him more quickly. CUTIE!

    What fun! And if you don’t want to go out, you have all the provisions ready for camping out at your house for a good long time. What foresight!

    I wish we had a snow day over here on the east side. All we’ve gotten is about 1/8 of an inch.

    Okay, is it just me, or is Magoo the SPITTING IMAGE of Dan in that picture?? What’s it like to gaze into the face of your hubby’s mini-me? 😉

    I miss the Seattle snow days…

    My daughter, for the past 3 weeks, has awakened every morning saying, “It’s gonna snow today!” despite the fact that it has been in the mid to high 60’s most days. We just got our tree while wearing t-shirts. Yet, I think after weeks of wishful thinking, I do believe her wish will come true tomorrow. Then I can pull out the hot chocolate avec marshmellows of course and take them to the hill just down the road to whiz down it. I’m hoping that it’s a closed school day too…

    Aren’t you glad your disaster drill wasn’t THIS WEEK?

  9. We had a 2-hour delay yesterday morning and will probably have another one tomorrow if Matt Zaffino gets his predictions right. I thought of you too, and Carrot, and Pamela, and…

    Isn’t this weather just crazy nuts?!?! Up here in BC we’re getting hit so hard!

  11. Mel says:

    We had an inch of snow and school’s been closed for two days now. It’s really cold, though, and icy. I think it’s kind of nice to be stuck inside. (My husband went to work, though, leaving me with the kids and laundry.)

  12. surcie says:

    Laylee is so quotable. And Magoo’s cheeks are kissable!

    It’s 75 here, but I’d love some snow.

  13. Goslyn says:

    I’m jealous! It’s been in the 60s here – about 30 degrees above average for this time of year. Enjoy the lovely white stuff.

  14. Leslie says:

    Hey! Don’t stick your tongue on anything!

  15. Sketchy says:

    Wow. 2 whole inches.

    I miss Washington!!!

  16. Tressa says:

    that boy is adorable 🙂

    it hasn’t snowed here in 10 years….we’re due for some flurries or something!

  17. I love the idea of the kids whamming into your garage door. 🙂

  18. grammyelin says:

    It’s A FREEZE here, too! I don’t think I like it at all…makes me miss Houston and my swimming pool. I’m really glad you all made it home safely before you got really snowed in, but I’m sorry it was such a long icy trip.

  19. Janell the Great says:

    As a kid I loved that Seattle couldn’t cope with large amounts of snow. Even the slightest bit of snow meant at least a school delay! When I moved to other, more snowy, states I was disappointed to never have snow days without several feet of snow in the early morning. Tragically, it took one school district the death of four students to learn that sometimes ya just gotta close down for the weather =C

    Keep bundled up! Drink lots of cocoa! =)

    That picture is toooo cute. You can always tell which child will be brilliant. And I think it’s the one reading Shakespeare. Have fun with your snow, I know I always did
