Let in SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!

our back yard
You cannot believe the amount of snow we've gotten up here in North Idaho- it's amazing! My husband was walking around in our backyard (to create a path for our wussy dogs) and it was up to his waist- I swear!  It's the most snow I've seen in my lifetime- and I've lived here for my entire life.  
We spent 2 hours this morning on our driveway(like we'll drive anywhere).  And the weirdest thing happened- we let the dogs out the back door, and there was a little black duck hiding under our bbq.  We live about 6 miles from the nearest body of water, so it must have gotten lost in the blizzard.  Poor duckie, didn't have a chance with our 2 bird dogs :(  KK had to put it out of it's misery after Jack and Matty each took a turn retrieving it.... the cycle of life I guess! (I'm just thankful Missy Pants isn't old enough to know the difference- that coulda been ugly).

The news is saying we could get up to 14 more inches by 4:00 this afternoon.... so needless to say, no school today and hopefully not tomorrow- Christmas Break started early-whooo hoooo!   
I've got plenty to do around the house to keep me busy today.... hopefully the hubster doesn't go stir crazy!

YAY for snow breaks! Woot! could you send some of that foreign white stuff down here to TX. This NY girl misses her snow!

How freakin' fun! I am from Ohio, and I say, if it is going to be cold, let it snow! That makes things so much more fun for Christmas. It is just plain weird that it is 80 out right now and it is the week before Christmas.

I have never been to Idaho! I want to go now! How awesome ... REAL snow. Not just a one day event and then back to the flip flops (yes, I wore short sleeves and flip flops today...)

I want to go out west soon!

Ok so maybe I won't complain about the 4 inches we got here and more to come! However, when you don't have to go anywhere it can be lots of fun! If it does snow tonight hopefully we can sled tomorrow :)
