Ice Ice Baby

Arctic fox mittens that Livi is wearing were mine from when we lived in Alaska. They are very warm!!


Cell service was spotty...big tease. I would think I had service, then NOTHING!

Decided to watch Narnia since I couldn't watch my trash DVR'd shows.

Electricity kind of flickered, but never went out for more than an hour

Facebook could be accessed in brief pockets of service on my phone.

Games....played my share or Dora Dominoes this week.

Had homemade ice cream

I think this is the longest I have gone without blogging since I was at my mom's (aka the land of no internet).

Just so thankful we had food and shelter.

Kind of ice storm related: The faucet kept leaking, then it leaked under the sink. Not sure if it was related to the storm. But Husband installed this gorgeous new faucet.

Livi loved sledding down the big hill in our neighborhood

Made good food despite the icky weather

No cable or internet for the week

Only ice left as of this afternoon is a bit in the shadows in the yard...freaky!

Pizza night, we still had it on Friday.

Quite a sight, all the broken trees. We lost one tree. Others were touching the ground so heavy with ice.

Raced down the hills in the sleds

Sounds of ice-laden branches cracking off the trees sound like cannons going off.

Thankful we had water and power throughout the week

Until Sat, I had not left the house since Mon afternoon....

Washed a bunch of jammies this week....snow days = jammie days in our house

Xpect to be stir crazy after that many days in the house

Yes, I was so ready to leave

Zipfy sleds are the best! I even rode down the hill once or twice.

On a limb with Claudia said...

((hug)) Wow. Most women would call this a real crisis, but our Tommie? It's just a jammie week. Well done!!

And the faucet is to die for!

Claudia-we had power,,,,I didn't rough it too much....Losing cable is a pain in the a$$ but not totally inhumane. Some
people here were burning their charcoal grills in their homes!!

I love your ABC theme.

The one picture looks like the ice is a thorn.

Your new faucet is gorgeous-- such great curves and lines.

Omg is that a zipfy?! The first picture on the left hand side? I have one of those! They're so awesome and fun! Me and my friends usually race one another with these freestyle mini luges. They work so well and and it's so much fun sledding down them! I found mine here: Zipfy
