Messy eater!

Cassie has always been a messy eater- but this is by far the worst it's ever been! And it didn't take her long to do this, I was just a few feet away cutting strawberries!! It's funny though, now every time we have something to eat that might even be a little messy Luke asks if it's bath time after meals, so Cassie being messy benefits him too! I'm glad I have a sprayer in my sink- hosed her down before the bath!

Snow last week

These are the snow pictures from last week. Crazy huh?! Our friends measured in their yard and had about 6"- which since there was a couple inches of ice under the snow and the ruler was pretty flat, it was a pretty good measure. It was very slippery infer all that snow- because if all that ice. I slipped and fell, was sore for a few days but not hurt bad. And school ended up being closed for 4 days in a row!

Today school is closed again due to ice/snow/freezing rain/sleet.

I'm ready for spring!

Longest week ever....

And it's not over yet! This is what it has looked like since Tuesday early in the midnight hours of the morning. Pure ice with a dusting of snow on top, and the ice is so thick a lot of places that I can't even crack/break it! It's some pretty thick layers of ice. School has been closed now for three days, and Michael has been flexing from home because his office has been closed for the first two days with a delayed opening today. The temps have been in the low to mid teens with windchill being in the negatives at times. Yesterday we had a day filled with rolling blackouts- the high was 18*! Crazy to think that last Saturday the temp was in the low 70's! I think the only one in the house that doesn't mind this insanely cold weather is Ender! Hopefully it warms up enough to start melting all this ice! And yes, I know it way worse in other parts of the I'll quit my complaining now!
