Snowed in

I'm finally catching up on my blog.  The last week has been filled with lots of snow, wet boots and gloves, hot cocoa, and home repairs.  Last week, the predicted blizzard of 2011 hit West Michigan and dropped 16 inches of snow in our neck of the woods.  The boys were so excited because that meant there was no school for them.  

 Brendan and Austin as they attempt to clear the drift by the front door...there were actually bare spot in the lawn where the snow had all blown away...I guess this is where is ended up.
 The drift at the back door...thankfully it left move for us to get in and out.
 The boys loved all the huge piles of snow that are all over the yard.  Mike had to get the loader from the farm to clear the driveway cause his truck got stuck three times.

 Connor all ready to sled down the drift.  He loves his new scarf that Grandma VD made him.
 What completes a couple hours, I mean minutes of playing in the snow?

....a delicious cup of hot cocoa.  

 I even let them use all my favorite mugs.
 and of course you need lots and lots of marshmallows with your hot cocoa

Oh to be a kid again and enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
