Snow Days!

Finally we get some of the white stuff! The first real snow storm of the season hit us yesterday and today and Wesley got a snow day today and tomorrow. Sean even got to work from home yesterday and today (and probably tomorrow). It's nice having all of us together safe and sound in a warm house. The snow is beautiful, all 10 inches of it, and the kids have already gone out to enjoy it. They lasted about twelve minutes before complaining that they couldn't feel their fingers, so in we went.

Sean said he got more work done at home than he did at the office. He locked himself up in Wesley's room to keep the kids (and their screaming, crying and all around loudness) at bay. Greta did manage to go upstairs and put her hat on him, which he wore around most of the day. Doesn't he look fabulous? I think he should work from home every day but sadly I don't think they'd go for it. 

I did quite of bit of preparations outside for the impending storm.  Lots of straw being put down in the shed, stock tank heaters/chicken water heaters plugged in and feed stocked up on. Sometimes you never know how long it will be before the roads get plowed out here. Winter feedings require many layers of clothes, warm gloves, buckets of hot water for the spoiled rotten goats and pockets full of treats (a can of cat food in one and a syringe of molasses for Dym in the other). I can't wait for Spring.
