I took the week off from blogging to spend with Grace, Jack, Eve and my Mom. Maddy was with us this past week!!! We had the best time together. We all had so much fun and it was so, so special for me to be able to spend time with my Mom and talk in person rather than on the phone. I'll be back to posting pictures soon.

Jack and Daddy trying to snow blow all of that snow out of our driveway!
Jack and Daddy beginning the long process of clearing away the snow!
Here is Jack measuring the snowfall levels...and yes, that is a yardstick he is holding. The yardstick looks rather small against all of the snow. I think Eve is still in a state of disbelief here!
Grace shoveling a path!
Jack trying so hard to snowshoe!
Grace playing a a snow drift!
Eve found shelter near the door on our front deck!
Jack standing outside of our garage.

This is what a blizzard looks and feels like!
Grace and Jack enjoying all of the snow!

Our biggest snowstorm on record has finally ended! Here are some pictures that I took this morning of Grace, Jack and Eve. It continued to snow here in Scarborough, Maine through the afternoon so imagine adding six more inches onto the snowfall seen here(!).
Here is a picture of our sweet Eve. The snow that we ended up receiving was much taller than she was. I don't think Eve knew quite what to think of all this snow!
Here is Grace exploring all of the snow in our backyard!
Jack initially tried to walk using his snowshoes but quickly realized that there was just too much snow!
This picture of Eve shows her standing in our garage looking out onto all of that snow in our driveway.
I love this picture of Grace looking at all of the snow in our backyard.
Here is a view of all of the snow in our driveway, front yard and porch.
Grace playing in the snow in our driveway!
This picture shows Jack on our deck. He worked really hard to get all the way out there!
Eve watching Grace playing up there in that snow that is so much taller than Eve is!
Grace made a little bed for herself in the snow!
More pictures coming tomorrow!
We made it through the night with our electricity ON! We woke up this morning to a blizzard - lots of snow and white out conditions. We have well over 30 inches of snow with snow drifts measuring feet high! We took Grace and Jack outside this morning while Eve was still asleep (poor little Eve - the snow is taller than her!). I took some pictures, which I'll post later today.

We have two handsome snow blowers.
We have one very excited snow shoveler....
...and an official snow measurer.
We are prepared as we can be for this storm!
I'll post more pictures tomorrow!
We are getting LOTS and LOTS and LOTS more snow. It has been snowing all day and the worst of it (the blizzard conditions) will begin later this afternoon and last all through the night and all day tomorrow. It is possible that we may get between 2-3 feet of snow! I just hope that we do not loose electricity and that we get less snow than Eve is tall! We are going outside soon to play in all this snow while the snowfall and wind levels are still manageable and fun. I hope to post pictures later - unless we loose power. :)

I made this 100 tally mark shirt for Grace to wear to celebrate her 100th day of kindergarten today! Grace could hardly wait to get to school this morning to begin celebrating her 100th day of school! Each child in Grace's class was asked to bring in 100 items of their choice. Grace also made a 100 hand print book, a 100 paperclip chain and a 100 bead necklace to share with the class.
The back of Grace's shirt.
Hooray for the 100th day!
