snowy days

The meteorologists were right. I’m sssssooooooo happy about it. Being holed up inside is one of my favorite things to be. And watching Gideon bunny hop through torso-deep snow brought so much happiness to my heart.
IMG_8566Gid could not get enough of the snow. He looooved it. Rolling, spinning, running, hopping, rooting, eating, barking and what seemed at times like dancing through all the powder. IMG_8300IMG_8275IMG_8276 IMG_8323 IMG_8390Tea, walks, bathrobes, fluffy socks, crunching snow, little puddles, netflix, naps, games, boots, cookies, blankets, icy fingers, and bright blue snow light.
IMG_8507 IMG_8567 The ladies would only venture out to an area we cleared of snow. They were not amused. IMG_8570 IMG_8568 IMG_8569Quickly the hens, and most humans in the neighborhood made their way indoors. To warm by the heater and look out the windows in wonder. I’m so sad to see melting this morning. Sigh.

Favorite snowy days moment: Matt and I stalked a few pre-teens around the neighborhood. Throwing snowballs and then hiding behind cars in hopes of confusing them. When they didn’t noticed, we decided an ambush was in order. What ensued was a 15 minute snowball fight that reminded me how hard it is to maneuver in snow.

Our parade is better than your parade…maybe.

I mean seriously. The Milwaukie parade was crawling with celebs. Take for example the following:

1. Azlan. Impressive, no?

2. Pietro. I didn’t actually see Mr. Pietro. I’m sure these are his grand kids or something.

3. Bob Moore. From Bob’s Red Mill…that’s right, baby.

4. The Magic School Bus

5. Retired vikings…who must live in a viking themed retirement home cause I can’t figure out for the life of me why they would be riding a massive viking vessel if they didn’t.

6. Mike…of Mike’s Port-O-Potties. Enough said.

7. Papa Murphy. Well, again Mr. Murphy didn’t show himself. Pietro and Papa were probably having a pizza throwing duel somewhere off site.

8. Last, but certainly not least, the king himself.

And he wants you to be able to vote for the light rail.

Come on, move here! You know you wanna.
