wordless{ish} wednesday: snowmageddon.

so if you live in the pacific northwest, follow any blogs of people in the northwest, have friends on facebook from the northwest or maybe if you watch the news?  then you may have heard what's going on around here.  yup.

snowmageddon.

and in seattle that means "ohmygawshwegotsnowandyesoneinchtotallyqualifiesassnowday!!"  but we're pretty legit down in the south sound where i live... we got like, four inches.  look out!  close the schools, work from home, re-stock the flash light batteries & food storage because the world as we know it is stopping until the last little bit melts.  and tonight we're supposed to get hammered with more.

how does this affect p-ray & i?  it makes us pretty much home-bound.  sam takes my car to work because his car currently doesn't have working windshield wipers {which are slightly important in the seattle area... especially during snowmageddon} & he's really not the type that will call in to work for a few inches, despite his hour long-on-a-good-day-commute.  it's one of his worst features.

so while stuck at home?  we make the best of it.  and that usually means getting outside.  for most of the morning, this was our view out the front window:


during these hours french toast happened, a couple episodes of thomas & friends happened {don't get me started on p-ray & tv.  i hate resorting to tv for entertainment.  but just keep in mind we've been stuck. at. home. now for days & days... remember before this we were stuck at home sick?  gah!!}, house cleaning happened, puzzles happened, dance parties happened & then putting on snow clothes happened.

long story short?  parker's not a huuuuuuge fan of the snow yet.  he can't really walk around in it too well {his boots are still kinda big for him & hard to maneuver in even on dry ground} so his confidence in it isn't the best.  this is how p-ray best enjoys his snow time:


yeah.  he pulled out his little umbrella stroller, insisted i open it up & then climbed inside.  then he pointed for the snow.

and when i pulled him out of the stroller & tried to show him how awesome snow is to walk around in?  he wasn't convinced.


before long we were back inside for round two of puzzles & other indoor antics.


he's lucky i like his face.  because we're supposed to get another 6-10" tonight & are looking at another couple of long days stuck at home enjoying each other's company


i guess it could be worse.

  3. Here in the NE (long island ny) we see a foot of snow, and maybe some delays. Sucks.

    What brand are those boots? I think im going to check out second hand stores for some great boots for my little guy.

  8. You grew up in Utah didn't you? So did I. In Portland I always thought it was so funny when it even looked like it MIGHT flurry people would rush home from work and come in the next day at noon. And they closed school for 2 days once when the roads might have been a little icy. 6-10" is quite a bit though, good luck!

  9. Oh watch out!!! Its snowmeggedon! Ha ha. I get so annoyed with how paranoid people get. I blame it on the media. It's JUST now. Not to mention that it's supposed to warm up to the mid 40's and all melt in the next day or two. Ha ha. Oh well. I love it while it lasts, even with the crazies around (not referring to you!) Bennett's boots are size too big for him, too. It's hilarious watching him try to walk/run in the snow. He wipes out a lot. Am I a bad Mom for thinking it's awesome & hilarious? lol. Next year, Parker will be loving the snow I'm sure!

  10. Beautiful pictures! I can tell a difference with your new camera and I know NOTHING about cameras! I'm SO not looking forward to being inside another day, but I'm crossing my fingers that Tim's building is closed (even though he could easily walk to work) so he can chill with us. :)

  17. We had snowmageddan last year. I'm happy to pass the torch. Sometimes it's nice to be forced to stay inside and spend quality time together. As long as you're stocked up on coffee... and chocolate... and toilet paper.

  18. That's totally normal that he was curious about snowmageddon. We tried to show our girl too much about how awesome the snow was, turned out she didn't like it for the next year too... but now she's 5, she just can't wait for the snow to fall...
