Free Snow- take all you want!!

So according to the news we have the most snow in a season in 134 years with 115.2 inches. That means that there are people who have lived their whole life and never seen this much snow. How lucky are we to be experiencing such a phenomenon?? I have no idea, but lucky probably isn't what most people are thinking since it is almost April and we have snow measured in feet still sitting in our yard.
For all of you not "lucky" enough to have had this experience let me share some pictures of what record breaking snow fall looks like...

And because we can't do anything about all the snow the best we can do is try to enjoy it the best way we can as Dom demonstrates here.....

Now this is what you call ice cold beer!

Happy Easter...a little late.

There have been some grumblings from the peanut gallery about me not updating my blog, so here is an update. We are actually in the second week of either one or both of the girls being sick and Dom and I are starting to feel a little sniffly, so in case I get sick hopefully this will tide you over...

Last week Becca had the stomach flu and missed the whole week of school. The doctor has had some concerns about her weight, especially since she has been really sick twice within a month, so he ran some blood tests just to make sure there wasn't any other reason that she might be losing weight and all the results came back normal. Now I just have to fatten her up! Not easy since she is such a picky eater!

Right about the time that Becca was starting to feel better Kenzie developed a horrible cough and stuffy nose. I brought her to the doctor on Tuesday where the doctor confirmed that yes she did have a bad cold, but it was making her wheeze and we are now doing nebulizer treatments 3-4 times a day to help her breath (and sleep) easier.

In the midst of all the sickness we did manage to celebrate St. Patricks day with a visit from a little leprechaun who caused some mischief, like turning the toilet water green and TPing the bathroom.

We managed to color eggs a few days before Easter and spent Easter Sunday in Gloucester with Nonna and Nonno. It was nice to see bare ground as opposed to our house where we still have several feet of snow. These past few days we have been blessed with the temperature close to 50. I have been opening all the windows and trying to get some fresh air into the house. The temps are supposed to cool off again tonight and we are due to get several inches of snow. This is of course spring in New England.
