So should we blame Phil for bringing the Russian snow and cold back with him? Thank goodness he got home when he did, or else I would not be a happy camper this week at all! And thank goodness he brought me a Russian hat so I could play in the snow and be super warm! The kids love their nesting dolls he got them. Phil will update you with his Russian trip soon, but we got a little sidetracked with... The Blizzard of 2011!
The lights flickered a bit last night, but we never lost power. The wind was crazy but the kids slept through it well, and we woke up to a winter wonderland! It was comical to see the huge snow drift out our sliding glass door this morning, and wondered how we'd get Java outside. Joey and Jillian couldn't believe their eyes to what they woke up to. And of course our wonderful neighbors helped us shovel out and play with the kids. Jillian didn't last terribly long, and after Joey warmed up to the idea of the sled with Nicholas he was having a blast!
