Ice, Sleet & Snow

Monday, February 1, 2010

...and a little wind and no power thrown in for good measure....yep, that was my weekend!

We rushed out Friday night to pick up a few things from the store, get Kyles hair cut, take off the trash and get gas for the 4 wheeler. By the time we were heading home it was just starting to flurry.

Saturday morning I woke up to the sound for ice & sleet hitting the windows. The ground, trees and anything else that would stand still was covered in a sheet of ice. So what better thing to do than all 3 of us pile on the couch to enjoy some family movie time....or so we thought....30 minutes into the movie......zap...power goes out!

{{trish grabs blankets, a deck of cards & several candles}}

So we spent the rest of the afternoon playing cards and pinball on Kyles Netbook. Luckly the power came back on just in time for me to get supper in the oven(and a homemade apple pie). Cause you know when you are snowed in all weekend all you want to do is eat, eat and eat some more!

Chris and Kyle tried to play in what little snow we had but mostly just had fun sliding around on the ice...even Chevy enjoyed having his turn sliding down the hill on the boogie board( he would even push with his back legs to get his self going).......crazy dog!

So that was our weekend spent together in the house. We really enjoyed spending time together playing cards, eating, playing games, eating,watching movies(once the power came back on)...oh and eating!

Aren't you glad you did a mad dash like the rest the Carolinians on Friday? Sooo glad I did. We didn't lose power though thank GOD! That is one reason I miss gas stoves though. Cause you will not starve with one of those bad boys.

We pulled out the boogie boards too and had a blast!

Man I hate losing power. Luckily all we got was the 8-10 inches of snow and our power still on. The most snow I have ever seen in KY!

Thank goodness your power can back!

Oh I would love some homemade apple pie waiting in my mailbox when I get home! ;)

The winter weather also gave us an excuse to stay home, veg out, and enjoy some family time together. I even (gasp!) baked for the first time in AGES. My daughter even learned a new word because of it-- "cupcake"!

I haven't been outside since Friday. I am boycotting the snow because it ruined my weekend plans. We didn't power though! That would have made me ill but we did prepare just in case.
