Snowmageddon 2011

I realize that Snowmageddon 2011 is a fairly dramatic post title - but I think that missing 4 days of school, rolling blackouts and being "snowed in" for the better part of a week is pretty dramatic - at least for Texas :)
I, like everyone else, knew that snow was coming, but wasn't expecting it until Tuesday night... so when we woke up to two inches of ice on Tuesday morning it was a little bit shocking. School was cancelled and my Facebook blew up with esctatic students posting messages about how glad they were to not have to take my test that day. hahahaha! :) The ice stuck around and the next morning we woke up to this...
We hunkered down for another day inside, which for Luke and I meant lots of snacking, movies, coloring, legos, Thomas the Train and organizing :)
Pretty early on in the day Luke voiced his concern for the birds who had to live outside, so we filled a box with old cookies, crackers, bagels, etc. and set it out on the patio table.
Luke spent lots of time that day checking the window to see if the birds had shown up yet. He and Cadence became best buds and he thoroughly enjoyed wearing daddy's "snow boots"...
Something we didn't do during the snow days was brush our hair... as evidenced by Luke's sweet case of bed head...
FINALLY! A BIRD!

And the only other picture I took was a picture of a sickly lookin' Luke-Man showing off his lego house :)
The days off were restful, unexpected and fun - but I have to admit, I'm ready for Spring. Summer, No. Spring, yes.
