We got over a foot of snow yesterday. C was so excited exclaiming, "Look at all that marshmallow!" (yup still obsessed with Ghostbusters and the marshmallow man when he slimed the city.) By the way did I mention for the past two weeks I've been Janine (secretary from Ghostbusters) not Mom and I made the mistake of talking like her one day so guess what he expects now whenever I talk...
We had fun playing in the snow and I just enjoyed a day were we could not go any where and I actually got things done like cleaning my bathrooms. It was nice not to be rushing around in 6 different directions.
My husbands snow blower broke when he just started plowing the driveway...we were like what now we have a huge driveway and it was heavy wet snow. Luckily my neighbor(who is also my dads cousin) has a backhoe and he was out shoveling snow with it so we kindly asked him to help us out. Well there is one thing my son is more obsessed with than 80's movies and that is everything construction related. So he was thrilled when a backhoe showed up in our driveway. He also got to sit in the backhoe with the driver and help him maneuver the gears to operate the bucket.
Elvis moved in the snow better than I thought he would jumping in and out of it like a dolphin in the water. I told my husband that we didn't need to close the gate since there was no way he would be quick enough to get to the road in all this snow...we were wrong and had to get the leash out. It was quite amusing to watch him frolicking in the snow.
Besides the sore muscles of the shoveling out the cars it was a nice relaxing day at home and my house finally got the cleaning it needed!
Here is a pic of C on the backhoe and Elvis in the snow.
Lol I just am a Florida girl and the othing I see in a backhoe is dirt. I just laugh thinking of a backhoe showing up to clear my driveway so I can get out. Glad he was able to come and help!
Wow - very cool!!
Love Elvis's pic there - so cute :)
I laughed reading this! C and Keira are soooo much alike. Only she takes on other persona's and requires that you call her by whatever name she chooses. Two weeks ago her name was Charlotte. She also likes to call me "Big Baby" in a low baritone voice and occasionally asks me if I need my diaper changed. It's really quite hilarious. :)
I am so glad that you guys had a nice but not so relaxing snow day. We have had a lot but with 3 girls home and an unlimited supply of glitter and crafts my house is the opposite of clean. There are frosting stains on my carpet and glitter in my grout. They finally went back to school today so maybe there is hope for me. They have not went a full week without a delay of cancellation since before Christmas break!!
I love the backhoe! My husbands work truck has a plow so we went and plowed come of our friends out and both of our driveways. We let the girls man the plow and they loved it! Glad C had a great time, his toy was way cooler than ours.
Jami Keira and C would have a blast together! All during C' s 3rd year of life he was Donald Duck and then Maverick from Top Gun. He would actually correct people when we were out if they called him by his real name. My house had a huge tent in it we built in the center of the family and half my dining room table was C's drum set he built. the joys of being stuck inside...My husband has banned glitter from the house so we just find other ways to get super messy when crafting!
