The weather didn't disappoint. It started snowing early Friday morning, though not as early as I had thought, but early enough, and it just kept snowing. It snowed the entire day. After we received about 5 or 6 inches more, it stopped for the night, but then kept on snowing for part of Saturday. Another 2 inches fell, approximately. Sunday morning we had some freezing rain, so now we have huge amounts of snow with a nice layer of ice on top. It's quite interesting to walk in.

|This is the front yard later in the day. You can't see the little hill we formed from shoveling for our snow fort. All the whiteness is blinding here!|
|Friday morning angels.|
|Smoothing out our hill so we can make that tunnel. Hopefully we can do it tomorrow!|
I didn't have to go in to work Friday morning, which Erik was sad about. He wanted to go into Red Bell. So we had preschool at our home. Jason saw about 8 other people in the huge building he works in. Only essential personnel had to go in. I guess he's essential!

We went sledding and Austin made a friend who let him use his snow board. Now Austin wants his own snow board. Luckily, I had gotten an old one from someone in the ward a couple of years ago. We tried it once, but it wouldn't slide, so we forgot about it. Saturday morning was busy and everything was taking a little longer with all the snow on the roads and our totally unreliable snow plowers around here, so I didn't have time to take the snowboard in to get serviced before trying it out on Saturday. I ended up just put a little car wax on and we went to the hill again Saturday afternoon and it worked like a charm! Austin loved it and did great, Victoria tried it and also did well, even I tried it! I have to say that snowboarding was fun! I don't think I would like it on a long stretch. I still prefer skiing, but on the sledding hill it was a nice change. I didn't get any pictures because my phone doesn't like the cold and has been shutting down when I'm in the cold too long, like when we were skiing, so I didn't even bring it out of the car. I guess I should try to remember my actual camera again.
Jason and I went out for Japanese on Saturday evening for our Valentines date and then we had a group of friends over that night for a game night. It was a fun tradition that I hope we can continue, now that our house is getting back in order after a few years of Project Basement.
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I have to say that I love all my Valentines!
|My mom sent my girls and I these dresses. We were excited to wear them Sunday.|
|For once Erik was sad that he couldn't be in a group pic (the one of the girls and I), so he wanted to get in his own with Jason. This is how he wanted it to be.|
|Never a dull moment!|
