Blizzard 2011

Most of the time I am some what skeptical of the local weather forecast. They call for rain and it's sunny and hot, they call for beautiful weather and it's windy and miserable. Well this time they called for a blizzard and what did we get.....exactly that. A blizzard. Winds up to 45 mph and 14 inches of snow with snow drifts up to 4 feet in some areas around our house. Needless to say, we were home bound for a few days. Now, I am not a big fan of the cold weather, so I thought I would let Jackson and his daddy 'bond' in the snow and venture outside. You'll notice some of the first few pictures are taken from inside.....yeah, I know......what a wuss.
Oh and yes, those are Wal-Mart sacks on my son's feet. He doesn't have a pair of snow boots due to the fact that his feet grow and the speed of light and his mother is too cheap to buy any because she knew he wouldn't spend "enough time" in them.
So we improvised :)


  1. No worries Lauren. Elane was too cheap to buy snow boots too and you know it, the Crosby girls ROCKED the Wal-Mart sacks. If you want, I will ask her if you can borrow her potato scrubber. :)

  2. Love the pics. I have to admit that I bought snow boots for the kids when we went to the Christmas Train because I was worried their feet would get too cold. Turns out we got to use them for snow too! I however am the only one in my family who doesn't have snow boots, so I'll be going to find some tomorrow before the next snow comes!
