Snow for sale

Okay, it was fun for a day but seriously, a week (with no end in sight)? I have been stuck inside with Ayda for a week. There is only so much a mom can take, we have made more salt clay than anyone can imagine. We have colored more pictures and used more stickers than I can even tell you, we have played the game, "don't break the ice" three million times. The city is under a chain requirement after the freezing rain of Saturday and Sunday. We had no church yesterday so one of our activities was to check out the snow covered by ice. Ayda was able to stand in a few places and in other places she would break through. We can't wait for this to pass so we can leave the house again. But until then we will come up with things to do, today we will be painting nails and toenails.

All three of those pictures are precious. Ice over snow is OK, makes for cute expressions, but keep her off ponds.

Your storms and cold are wreaking havoc here. This morning B98.7 did a whole morning show devoted to getting 20 or so people home to the Northwest... they have been stuck at the Greyhound station for 5 days because the buses can't get over the Sierra Mountains.

I know someone they could get home...my mom!! Hope she gets on a flight tomorrow!

We've been stuck inside a lot from snow and/or cold. In desperation I got 3 squirt bottles and put food coloring and water in them and we 'painted' the backyard. It was fun but I sure hope this cold ends soon!
