the rest of the snowy yesterday and a sunny today

Brant and Memph were diving into the snow at the same time. :) See Memphis's little splayed paws??

The snow kept falling later than we even thought it would. And then it was hard to tell when it had stopped because the wind was so strong and was blowing snow everywhere! By the end of the afternoon, Memph literally had to swim through our backyard!

It got sooo deep in our front yard! If Brant or I were heavy enough to fall to the grass below, it would have been up to our necks!

So, in between turns shoveling, I made some focaccia bread. It was delicious. :) 24 hours later, it is also no more, cause Brant and Annie liked it so much!

Annie woke up from a long afternoon nap and ate bread and watched the snow.

We stayed warm against (or sitting on) the radiator and watched it pile up outside!! 

Then Annie got a turn to play in the snow. We built yet another slide :)

Catching snowflakes on her tongue!

Then it was time to start trying to dig the car out . . .  It took me a while just to brush all the snow off. The snow was up to my chest as I walked around the car. Luckily we had a lot of neighbors out helping us. It was a fun afternoon, and we all went to bed blissfully tired. :)

This morning we woke up to sunshine and the news that Brant didn't have to go in to work until 11! So we danced and played all morning.

I went outside to shovel some paths and start building a snow cave for Annie. I had to take a few pictures first! :)
