Snow Afternoon!

I woke up hoping for a snow day home from work, but didn't have much luck there. However, we did get an early release for a snow afternoon! So the rest of these pictures (apart from the first) are all about our snow afternoon.

This first one, however, is Caleb's JC Penny catalogue model pose. We got that outfit (pants, shirt and vest) for $12 at the BX. Thanks, 50% off rack!

These next tow are from our drive through town here. It was really coming down at that point! All day long, there would be these wicked bouts of downfall and whiteout for about 15 minutes or so, and then it would let up and be crystal clear for a while. A bit later, the crazy snowfall would begin again.

This is our backyard, which is one of our least favorite features in the house. The house was brand new when we moved in, and the landlord decided to lay gravel instead of sod because he was worried the dogs would dig up the grass. Instead, we just have an eye sore of a backyard that's more like a littler box than anything else. But under a blanket of snow, it doesn't look half bad!
This is Caleb meeting a snowman in our neighborhood. He wanted to kick it. I managed to talk him out of it.
This is Caleb throwing a snowball at me. Or, rather, a snow lump. He can' t quite make them into balls yet.

And this is Caleb standing in my snow angel and yelling something unintelligible.

Apparently the forecast has more snow in store for us overnight. We'll see what tomorrow brings!

OH! And by the way, I just read on Shannon's blog that it's De-Lurker week. So if you read this, but don't comment, I'd love to know who you are. I suspect it's mostly my mom who reads (hi, mom!) But, again, I 'd love to know who you are, and if you have a blog, I'd love to check it out!
