Yesterday a big storm rolled into our neck of the woods, and while most of the surrounding school districts had a snow day, my kiddos had to go to school. The snow continued throughout the day and around dinner time last night, we got the recorded call stating that school would be officially closed today. Which was, of course, cause for celebration with extended bed-times and sugary desserts.
We woke up to lots more of the heavy, wet snow as well as freezing temps. Our poor pumpkins are hibernating under a thick blanket of snow and will probably not get carved, as we will be too busy building a snowman (we'll have to add a witch hat or something in honor of Halloween.) This was the view from our front porch this morning:
And the backyard, which has significant drifting. Both dogs looked at me like I was crazy when I opened to door to let them out this morning. But I strapped on their St. Bernard keg barrels and sent them out anyway.
I'm sure you're wondering how my ficus tree manages to stay so green and lush in this winter weather. To get these babies to survive the frigid temps, you'll need highly-honed gardening skills. Or about $79 bucks and trip to Home Depot. Take your pick. :)
Today, after the requisite time in the snow, we'll be snuggling up for movies, popcorn an possibly a little scrapping. I'll leave you with a few sneaks from the November Jenni Bowlin kit. For a closer look at some of the contents, check out Jenni's blog post with the new product lines - swoon!
Have a fabulous Thursday my friends - stay warm!
