First half of our snow/blizzard day

Well as most of you know we got a huge snowstorm here today. To this Texan it looked like a blizzard this am. (Yes, I know I've never seen one but I can imagine this is what it would be like). Caleb woke up around 7 to go potty and I of course told him to get back in bed until our wake up time of 7:30. He is usually pretty good to comply and just reads in bed. At this snow. By 8:00 this Is what it looks like out our back door (1st photo). So we continued our snow day by making Nutella French toast...aaaamazing! In case you can't tell by the boys faces.
As it continued to snow by about 9:30 I think we had atleast 6-8 inches. See second snow photo.
So we played trains for a while. Colored, painted etc...then Courtney gave me this brilliant idea to put shaving cream and food coloring in the bathtub. Atleast 30 min of good fun. AND bonus they smell like my grandpa used to. :) (Julie, sissy, I am sure you remember that distinct smell of "I'm thinking of a number between 1-10")
Then we had some lunch and a little tv time. They wanted to play in it all am but it was coming down so hard I kept saying no. Of course now it's stopped and they're napping. Darryl tells me it's just a "lull" and is supposed to start again soon... Oh dear. :)
