Snowpocalypse 2016

Leah finally added me as a guest author which means now two people can disappoint the grandparents and other relatives by rarely posting anything. But seriously, we are trying to get better about it.

So, about a week ago, we had snow. HOLY JESUS! Everything shut down. It was maybe about a inch. Very wet though, which meant the roads were actually a little dangerous.. The  weatherman said that it was supposed to all melt by about noon-ish, so very first thing in the morning we rushed to get the kids outside. This was Lottie's first experience in real snow, afterall.
Jim insisted on keeping his hands in his pockets most of the time. Too cold for our southern boy.
 Lottie really wasn't sure what to make of all this cold white stuff.
 Big Brother tried to show her, but any time she picked it up she  panicked because it was too cold.
Touring the grounds to see everything covered in snow was fun for both of them.
 Jim shows his battle scars from Dad pummeling him with snowballs off camera.
The police line up for Leah to pick out which one threw the snowball at her.
Both were guilty.
 Documentation that Leah still exists.
 Documentation that I still exist.
 Jim and the Grim Reaper decided to go explore how the field looked in the snow.
 Lottie chose the sensible alternative and helped me make pancakes.
After pancakes, which the kids ate as fast as I could make resulting in neither Leah nor I having any, we spent the rest of the day like this.
