Snow Dump

So, just like most of the people I know we were effected by Winter Storm Jonas. Or the Blizzard of 2016. We are at the very northern limits of the storm so it seems almost ridiculous to say this, but we "only" got a foot of snow. A foot of snow at any other time would be quite respectable.  Twenty miles south of here got 2-3 feet of snow.

Anyway, here is a photo dump of the end result of a pretty big snow storm!

This was Lucy's first venture into snow.  Once she was bundled up not only could she not walk but she could barely stand unassisted.  I tried to get a video of it but I messed something up on my camera.

So she sat in the sled and we took turns pulling her around until she said, " house!!"

Sasquatch or Claudio?

always love the curl of smoke coming from the chimney.

And Then There Was None

Front teeth that is. 

He is one of those kids with no front teeth.

It has been almost a year since Ben has lost a tooth!  This is #3!  He looks like a big Jack-O-Lantern.

He has been nursing this tooth for a while.  Yesterday the kids got lollipops at the Allergist's office, but no one thought to grab one for Lucy.  So when we got home Lucy was besides herself without a lollipop of her own.  I asked Anna if she would give up her pop for Lucy and she did.  Today I had to run into CVS to grab a prescription and I bought Anna an enormous Blow Pop for the sacrifice she made yesterday.  My kids have a disgusting habit of sharing lollipops (*gag*).  So after hours of Anna nursing this enormous lollipop Ben grabbed it and popped it in his mouth.  Anna, grabbed the stick to pull it out of Ben's mouth and pop....out came the lollipop AND the tooth!

In continued grossness....Anna offered Ben the bubblegum from inside the pop so he could practice chewing with one less tooth.
