Snowed In

Wow! What a week it has been! We got somewhere around 13 inches of snow over the course of 24 hours.  It was crazy!  Here are some pics of Matt venturing out for the first time after all the snow fell.  He thought he might go out and see if his newspaper was there but quickly realized he would not be able to even open the gate until he did some shoveling.  In case you were wondering the paper was not there.  Our paper delivery and our mail were cancelled! 

And what did we do while we were cooped up in the house for three days?

Jadon and the dogs passed some time this morning watching the plow we called clear our lane.  It was very interesting to all three of them.

We read some books.  He loves Goodnight Gorilla.  Silly Gorilla!

Jadon also looked at his lift flap books.  He loves his lift flap books right now.

We played with some pop beads.  Great therapy since it takes the use of both hands!

He really enjoys this build your own train block set that I got from Discovery Toys back when the older two kids were little like Jadon.

He also spends a lot of time lately lining up things.  Here he is lining up all his chunky trucks and cars.  I love watching him do this.  Don't ask me why. 

He spent so much time lining all these up and when he was done he squealed with delight as he ran his shopping cart into the line to destroy it.
And of course he spent some time in his own little personal cave building with the duplo legos.

In case you were wondering Jadon is still trying out all the baby equipment.  Here is is in the baby swing.  I was pretty worried he was going to break it but I had to get a picture before I got him  out! 

He even managed to squeeze himself into Baby Riley's carrier!  He is so crazy!

What did Shelby and Jake do with their unexpected days off?  A whole lot of nothing and I think they enjoyed every minute of it.  Hey!  Isn't that what snow days are all about!  Now if it would just warm up a little bit so we can go outside and play in all the snow!  That would be wonderful!
