S*N*O*W & Lots Of It!

Here in the northeast we just had the best snow storm in years! My kids have finally gotten the chance to play in a DEEP snow they will remember. I love being snowed-in, it gives you a great excuse to kick back and relax. It's also gives you a great sense of community as everyone helps clear sidewalks, driveways and cars.

Now, while the kids are having a great time digging and playing in the snow, the dogs are thoroughly confused by it. Chelsea (our Rottweiler/German Shepard mix) is NOT happy about the deep snow and would prefer we just keep the door closed and ignore the white stuff. Sheldon (our Border Collie, Chow, Lab mix) is tolerating it, and Dexter (our spastic Jack Russell/Border Collie mix) is LOVIN' IT!!! Check out the video below. We were trying to get Dexter to leave the shallow snow in the walkway and enter the deep snow further in the yard. Doing so would have put the snow over his head. We bribed him with a soccer ball (his favorite toy), yet he still wouldn't go without a little help.

Here are a few other photos of our snowy day:
