I wasn't planning on doing a blog post tonight, but because of our snowstorm last night I ended up having some photos to share with my family and friends and thought you may like to see them too! Madison got clobbered (along with many other cities in the Midwest) with our first winter storm of the winter season. All told, everyone in this area received at least 16+ inches of HEAVY wet snow that made for some beautiful photos, but tons of back breaking work cleaning it up!
My photos are at the end of my post after this card I decided to share that I made with Theresa's Life is Good stamp set. I shared it during the release party and thought it would be perfect to share tonight - you'll see why when you see my first photo.
And, now onto my Snow storm photos - see why I choose the tree image for my card tonight?
The snow was so heavy, tons of it stuck to the houses, trees, bushes, etc. And, it was perfect packing snow for Ashley to try her hand at another snowman....
Brad woke up super early this morning and did the bulk of the shoveling before any of us even woke up. He was out shoveling at 5:00 this morning - can you imagine? Love that guy!
After I made a hearty pancake breakfast for everyone, we all went out to finish off the driveway after the snowplow came through and buried us in. We had also gotten another 3 inches of snow since he had shoveled earlier, so there was plenty for everyone to do.
Ashley lasted about 5 minutes and then she decided it was time to throw some snowballs and work on her snowman while everyone else worked... that's pretty much par for course for this 'baby' in our family! lol!
Isaiah and Brad were troopers because they let her throw snowballs at them until we finished shoveling - and then, it was payback time!
They had a lot of fun playing together - kids LOVE snow, don't they!?
The trees and bushes on the other hand - not so much ... poor tree -
See you tomorrow night for the CSS Recipe blog hop event!
