Today was declared a snow day by most schools in the Chicagoland area.  We took full advantage and had a ton of fun.  My office was closed and Peter took a snow day too.

We had the neighbors over to play Barbies and video games, we shoveled...several times, we played in the snow, we watched Wreck-It Ralph, played in the snow some more, had popcorn and made (and enjoyed) chocolate covered potato chips, shoveled again, watched The Princess Bride, had a yummy dinner and some hot cocoa, shoveled some more, and headed to bed.  Everyone passed out really quick.

I didn't get as many pictures as I would've liked, but the snow never stopped and my camera was getting too wet, and I was enjoying the snowball fight a bit too much to stop to take pictures.  We got a total of 9" in about 19 hours or so.  It doesn't sound like a lot, but it was.  And we were SOOOO excited to get a big snowfall, especially since Sunday is supposed to be high 40's and rainy.


Very wet Snow Angels

Around 2 we were just around 5" 
 Time for popcorn, chocolate-covered potato chips, and Wreck-It Ralph
 Charlie was mesmorized while swinging in the snow

Adding some fun to our slide

 By dinner time, we were up to 7"

After shoveling a 4th time, with the help of our neighbors and Delaney and Kate, they played in the snow one last time for the day...
 Night Angels
 All tuckered out!
