More Winter Pics

Well, the snow just kept coming so we were snowed in for about 4 days....though I use the term "snowed in" loosely since we could go to the store, play outside and had plenty of warmth so it's not like we were reliving "The Long Winter" or anything. We just didn't go anywhere. At any rate, we had a lot of fun sledding and enjoying the white stuff. Here are some more pictures of Storm Watch '09: Ruby and Kayla forging through the drifts. We had a nice morning sledding down Kayla's driveway. Unfortunately, Ruby's little paws got too cold so by the time we made it home she was slightly hysterical. Nothing that a little cocoa couldn't cure though!

Here's Ruby and her dad going back up the hill after sledding down. This is on the closed street near our house. It was full of kids and grown ups sliding up and down on snowboards, sleds, innertubes and garbage can lids. You can see that Ruby is using a grout pan..'cause that's how we roll. The entire city was sold out of sleds so we made do with what we had. Turns out it worked perfectly! Here's our poor little garden gnome, Monty, all covered in snow..

And Ruby's first " 'no-man"! She was tired and mad that it was so hard to walk in the snow so she pretty much cried the whole time I was making the snowman. However, when I showed her this photo she got really excited about it. Turns out...she's a lot like me and can only enjoy the snow so much.

As I was scrolling down, I thought that was Ruby covered in snow and I thought, "Oh my god, how did they do that? Look, her face is all messed up! Oh wait, that's a gnome." BTW, what's a grout pan?
