Snow, snow, and more snow! It started snowing on Friday evening around 8:00 pm and continued to snow until about 9:00 pm on Saturday! We got about 21" of snow, which was measured by Juan going out on our deck in only a shorts and a t-shirt to measure!

When Xavier woke up on Saturday morning he looked out the window and his eyes got wide and he said "Mama, Santa is getting ready to come".

Mari and Xavier could not wait to get outside to play in the snow - so out we went. They played in the snow while Juan shoveled the sidewalks.

On Sunday afternoon we went sledding with our friends in the neighborhood! The kids had a blast and didn't want to come in despite the fact that they were freezing.
