Holy Snow

For all you non-utahns' out there...we got slammed with a great storm that brought lots of white bliss...



Yummy snow...

Actually it is fun to get a big bowl of fresh/clean snow and add sweetened condensed milk and a little vanilla and stir it up for a great icey treat! Ingrid (my sis-in-law) taught us this and it is really fun to make after a storm like this...


Ruby trying desperately to run around or even walk, "Mom, the snow's too big." and later she said, "Mommy I can't walk, but (she means because) there's too many snows! "



She really would have sunk if she weighed a little more than a mere 23 lbs.

Lost in the oblivion of white...just a speck of pink
"Look Mom, a BED!!" then I said well I'll take a picture of it , and Ruby replied, "Mom, but the bed can't smile?!"


Oh, the glorious days of not having a garage! Enjoy it while I can eh?

And then, the sun finally broke thru and made the day even more beautiful!
Marty kindly removed this icicle, insisting that it could kill someone, had it fallen at the wrong time...I actually agreed with him!

WOW...what an icicle!! That DOES look dangerous! Way to go marty!

I'm a little jealous of the snow....it is a downpour of RAIN right now...well actually for the past 5 hours it has been. We had 68 degree weather on monday and TUesday. WHAT?!?!? It's JANUARY! We haven't figured out ohio yet, but i love seeing the snow pics on everyone's blogs. Rubes is so cute in her little pink marshmallow outfit! Did you get some black and white pics with your other camera while you were out being snow angels??

Holy cow...your Ruby is such a little cutie. I can't believe she could even move in all that snow! Looks so fun....

Kath said...

She is adorable. Her comments are hilarious. I love to hear what little ones come up with...so cute. It is pretty, I agree...but I think I'll enjoy it through your pictures...it was 60 degrees here today and I'm not too interesting in trading right now :).

The last line of this post reads "I actually agreed with him." It sounds like you guys almost never "do" agree. Is that what you meant to say? Love the icicle though. The snow on the garbage can is always nice too. Nothing running out to just throw one bag in and having to get all the snow off the can first.

Mindy, I love sunny CA. No snow for me. It's beautiful in your pictures and Ruby makes it look like real fun, but no thanks. I wish you could mail me an icycle though. I could use it to stake my clematis up with in my garden. Ruby, you are the cutest little pink snow bunny ever. I love you. I'm blowing you a kiss all the way fro CA. Love grandma diane

I've honestly never seen a cuter family. We miss you guys. We're suppose to hangout soon. We better not leave it up to the guys or we'll miss the opportunity.
