Let it snow!

I'm sitting in my Seattle living room watching the snow fall outside my window, after a wonderful day of playing in the snow with my family and neighbors. The snow is beautiful and brings back so many memories of growing up in Minnesota. The problem is, that it's been coming down like this for almost a week and Seattle is a town that is simply not prepared for this kind of weather. Because of the steep hills and the lack of snow removal Seattle closes off streets, public transportation is paralyzed and the entire town shuts down and hibernates until the rain comes and melts the snow away. In the 9 years I've lived here, I've never encountered a 'snow day' lasting more than 1-2 fun-filled days of sledding in the streets. But this year, the weather men cannot predict when the snow will stop coming down, let alone when it will melt away. I will admit I’m getting a little bit of cabin fever.

We are making the best of it by helping the boys learn how to enjoy the snow as much as their little anxious toddler personalities will allow. ("COLD" is another word the Deuce learned quickly and is now heard often.)

Below are a few of pictures from the past few days (Ok, a lot… like I said, we are going a little stir crazy!)

What fun! It took our guys awhile to warm up to the snow as well...and they see it all the time.

I hope the weather clears up soon, both so you guys can get out of the house and so we can get to Portland!

The Seattle weather is affection Anchorage's Wii supply! We tried to buy one on Sunday night and were laughed at...there isn't any in town.

Merry Christmas!
