Don't drop your wallet out there, my friend

If I had a penny for every person that has said "we haven't had a storm like this since I was a kid", I'd be a wealthy, wealthy woman! Yes, the city of winter has once again been pummeled by a winter storm . . . several days *before* the first actual day of winter. The snow banks are well over P&D's little heads now, the only way to escape our home is to tunnel out in one manner or another ;-)

Here is our front walk . . .

And me peeking outside the front window . . .

The boys' slide in the backyard . . .

Poor Rudy - not even one tough cocker spaniel is equipped to deal with this kinda weather.

The snowbank right outside our back door . . .

"I am seriously just trying to find a spot to take a dump."

Thankfully the snow is soft, white, fluffy and super great quality for playing in. It's perfect for sledding and digging tunnels and forts, so the boys really love it. The past few days have been brutally cold but this week the temperatures should be looking up and we will likely be able to play outside for longer than 30 minutes. It looks like a white Christmas for us, for sure :-)

Now that is snow! Ours turned to rain so now we have a driveway of frozen slush! Great for walking!

Most of our snow melted and rained away today. It didn't feel like Christmas Eve at all today.

The pictures of the boys in their knit sweaters are too cute! They're so nice. You're mother uses such nice yarns, too.

Have a Merry Christmas!
