Are We Back in New Hampshire?



Friday evening the snow started and by Saturday morning we had 6 inches. It kept snowing all day and the news was calling this storm “The Blizzard of ‘09”. It was pretty intense but luckily we had our winter in NH to prepare us for extreme snow. I finally got to bust out Brendan’s snowsuit that I bought on clearance at the end of last winter, and he was so adorable and as puffy as a marshmallow.

IMG_5711 Brendan didn’t mind though. He was happy running around and trying to catch snowflakes in his mouth.

Chris shoveled the snow into a hill in our backyard and pushed Brendan down it with a laundry basket as his sled. I think we need to buy a real sled now. And we need to find a real hill to sled down.

IMG_5749 Church was cancelled today so we took the opportunity this morning to shovel and try to unbury our cars.  We had about a total of 15 inches that fell since Friday night and it was a lot of work to try to shovel all that snow.

IMG_5745 Brendan even chipped in and helped brush off some of the snow on the Acura. But then after being such a good helper, he tried to recover it with snow so he could start all over again.

  1. I love the idea of using a laundry basket for a sled!! That's awesome. We just woke up to a bunch of snow, so I have a feeling I'll be out there with my kids later on. I'm off to shovel now... fun fun.
