Friday they were calling for a snow storm to come into Maryland that should bring 8 to 12" of snow. By Friday late afternoon they were calling for 10" to 20". I was glued to the weather channel to make sure it was really going to happen. The problem with Maryland is they call for these big snow storms and then they never come, so I have to watch the weather channel to make sure that they do come! :) Friday night at about 10:00p.m. we started getting some snow. At 5:00 a.m. I got up to look out the window and make sure that it was still snowing, and it was. It was a continual snow all night and then all day on Saturday. It was small flakes so it didn't look too crazy! By midday we had a good amount of snow. At about 4:00 I went and tried to measure, but I only made it a few steps and measured close to the house, and at that time it was measuring about 16". It snowed until about midnight Saturday night. They say that we ended up with about 23" of snow, and we are loving it. Here are some pictures during the day, and the next day!

This is the top of Gene's car after he had cleared a little bit of it off!

Gene preparing himself to dig us out! I was nice enough to let him do all the work!

Isaac checking out snow for his first time ever!

Pretty much he looks like the kid from the Christmas story. The things we do to our children just to get a picture!

Gene slowly introducing Isaac to the snow.

Brenden and Isabelle all bundled up and ready to go and play in the snow!

So jealous. But I'm so happy you had a white Christmas. Isaac and Dylan would have been funny to have together.....two little snowballs in those snow suits.

hey it was fun to see you at the Pinewood derby. I was coming to your ward today, but I guess you didn't have church. Dang, I was getting excited to see you again.
