Lots of Snow!

Evie and I have been home all day enjoying the beautiful snow, It's been falling since about 10 this morning. We stayed in our pj's and drank hot chocolate. Well, maybe Evie did not have any hot chocolate. We built towers with her blocks, shopped for groceries with her cart, crawled up the stairs, made cornbread and had a picnic on the boxes of wood floors. Evie is just the sweetest baby.

Carl finally made it home after an hour and half drive in the snow. It usually takes him about 20 minutes so that tells you how bad the weather is here. We were so glad to see him. Evie was napping but she was happy when she woke up.

We dressed Evie up in all of her warm clothes and took her out for a little bit. She likes the snow as long as you hold her. It was so cute to see her squealing, waving her arms in the air and smiling so big. Her little face crumples when you put her down in the cold stuff. Evie does not like having cold, wet feet. Can't say I blame her. She's our little snow baby. I remember taking her out in the snow last winter when she was a tiny baby. Evie took a little nap in her snowsuit under a bush. Of course, it was a super short nap before I took her inside. Evie did not nap this time but enjoyed seeing our neighbors sledding and jumping on their trampoline in the snow.

I made potato soup for dinner tonight. Recipe is courtesy of Urban Farmwife and it was fabulous! Thanks Allison - you are right it is as close as you can get to restaurant style potato soup. We will definitely have it again soon. It's the perfect dinner for a cold, snowy night. Well, gotta run . . . we renewed our subscription to Netflix and it's time for our movie. Stay warm and enjoy the snow if it is has made it to your neck of the woods.
