The Never Ending Winter

Let's just say this winter has been one of a kind . . . snowstorm after snowstorm.  The kids have been having a lot of fun staying home from school and getting to watch tv all day while Brian & I attempt to work from home.  I do have to say that it is really pretty outside.  Though I think everyone is ready for the warmer weather, which doesn't appear to be anywhere in sight.  But this weather has allowed us to try a few "firsts".  We took Evan skiing for the first time this winter and, after quite the fit in the lodge, he really did love it.  We've already taken him a second time again just to keep him familiar with it:

 And this is one of our many snow storms.  Thankfully Eric has taken more to wearing gloves:
And loves to try to "shovel" with these summer beach shovels:
Evan was enjoying the chance to get outside:
And to pose to show off how high the snow is piled:
We put the snowball maker that the boys got for Christmas to good use too.  Perfect snowballs and perfect aim:
And the first snowman we've ever built:
 Complete with broccoli for eyes, mini carrot for nose and blueberries for the mouth:
Hopefully spring will be here before we know it!
