Snowed in

I'm sure you've heard how we've been up to our ears in snow... church was canceled for 2 weeks in a row! We have a total of 27 inches of snow this year, which is very unlike Richmond. So Jake built another fort, this time in the front yard, so if the neighbors came over they could play. (Last time it was in the back yard, not so inviting.)
You can see how deep the snow is on Jansen. Notice he sticks out his tongue to concentrate, just like dad.
He finally made it up the stairs to try and get me to come out.
As I was looking through the pictures I took, I probably had 70 of just Jansen. I think Jake and I feel a little guilty about him being the middle child, ya think?
Adam and Stacie came over to help get rid of some cabin fever. And yes, that is me in the snow fort with Reesa!
We even let Mitchell come out for a little tiny bit. I think he loved it!


  1. That looks like a ton a fun! That snow fort is way cool! We've hardly had any snow here. It snowed a tiny bit this morning, but then turned to rain. I never thought I'd say this, but I kind of wish it would snow a little bit!
    We love you guys and sure miss you too!

  2. Oh my goodness! We've been snowed in also. I can hardly stand it. Seems like you guys have a lot better attitude than me. That snow fort is awesome! What a great dad!

  3. Wow, so much fun!! LOVE the pic of Jansen's tongue sticking out, hilarous! Jake builds a mean fort. Who knew Virginia could have so much snow???

  4. that looks like so much fun! i was sad i didn't get to talk to you yesterday. call be again when you can. we are having another snow day here. can you believe that OSU actually closed???? that is only the second time since we've lived here! of course all it means is that nate is trapped in our basement all day instead of the lab at school. but it also means i'm going to make him do the shoveling today instead of me. mitchell looks so dang cute in his little hat! love you guys!

  5. that snow fort is freakin' awesome! :) What a crazy winter we've had!?! I'm ready for spring. . .
