It's true. Perhaps, as my friend Kim suggested, clergy workers used their direct line to The Divine to get out of work two weekends in a row.
I'm not sure I'm buying that, but I do know that we had two feet of the stuff, and another storm is coming this Tuesday night.
Luckily, we are prepared:
So, what does one do with two housebound toddlers?
This took about five minutes. (Also, FYI. Sponge Bob toothpaste + swallowing=vomit.)
How about we take a page from Mrs. 4444 and make adorable Valentine's Day Cards? We'll do what her kids did and SPELL OUT "I Love You," using their bodies!
That would be as adorable as a basket of fluffy kittens singing Kum-Bah-Ya.
This was an epic FAIL.
"I" is adequate, although Owen looks like he's doing "Light as a Feather/Stiff as a Board."

I used my older trained monkey to make a series of yogic poses/semaphore codes to approximate various letters of the alphabet. Can you tell what's the Y, O, V, and U?
Paul couldn't either.
They say never work with kids or animals.
Off to plan B...
So, there's that. Another Martha Stewart moment, courtesy of yours truly. To distract you, here are some more pictures of snow.
Did I mention that we lost power for three hours yesterday?
