I had originally planned on posting "Part 3" of our house tour, but this afternoon, I failed to get all of the photos I wanted with daylight...So, it'll be another day.
Instead, I'll show some photos of our snowy day and talk about our day....
It did snow 6 inches here today. Marc JUST measured this evening. And since he's an official "weather spotter/tracker" for the National Weather Service for the city of Newton, KS, that's the official amount that will be reported (I bet you didn't know that little fact about Marc).
Since you don't get a tour of anything inside of our home -- how about a couple of outside shots -- taken this afternoon?
Yes, one of the garage doors is open in this photo. I went outside through the garage in this mess :)
And, here's a photo from our family room -- looking onto the deck. I just LOVE how snow sits on our table and chairs. You can see the bottom parts of the chairs buried in snow.
We live on a intimate (and cute, I think) little cul-de-sac with eight houses and WONDERFUL neighbors. One of our neighbors, Wayne, is ALWAYS immediately out with his snowblower when it snows (and not too many people have snowblowers around here).
Here's a distant photo of trusty Wayne -- with his snowblower. He always clears the street just in front of his driveway. That way, he has good traction when he backs his car out.
This morning, Luke and I ventured out in the snow. On Fridays, I take Luke to our local library for Toddler Story Time.
I generally get there early. Luke tends to be a bit shy, and he never seems to want to go into the play area before the story time starts to play...I think he's overwhelmed by too many other kids.
Instead, he INSISTS on walking back and forth across the alarm sensor -- you know, the things that buzz off if you steal a book.
But yes, he does like to sit and listen and watch during storytime. But, as soon as it's over, it's back over to the alarm sensor.
Whatever entertains an 18-month old....right?
After the library today, we ran to the bank and post office....you know, general errands.
Then, I called my friend Andrea....I said, "Can we come over? We need something to do since it's so yucky outside."
Fortunately, Andrea said, "Yes."
So, we spent some time over there...Luke LOVED playing with Ava's toys. They're different than home. It was probably the most content I've seen him all week since being sick.
Thanks Andrea for letting me "pop in."
After that, it was lunch and then naptime....
Luke and I then quickly ran to the grocery store to pick up a couple little items.
Then, dinner with Marc.....
Luke's now in bed....We're ready to watch Numb3rs.
There's our day.....
Joyful and a little silly
