Snow Day from Church

It doesn't happen often, but today church was cancelled due to the snow. The storm ended last night and the roads were pretty clear today, so we met Mom and Dad for lunch at Frisch's and then headed to their house to play in the snow. The kids built their first-ever snowman and had fun sledding and throwing snowballs. In between playing outside, I got my fill of watching the Food Network (I love this channel, but we don't have cable!). After yummy pizza from Joe's, we headed home. Ellie fell asleep before we ate dinner and woke up only long enough to change into her jammies and then head to bed. Today wore everyone out, so hopefully we sleep well tonight since we lost an hour of sleep due to the time change last night.

11 inches of snow!

That's what Uncle Andy gets for wearing short sleeves!
