At least, that's what the forecast called for... 
personally, I thought it just snowed and snowed and snowed...
most of the time pretty light, but it sure did accumulate.

Door #1 - snowed shut
 (this is as far as we could open it).

Door #2 - snowed shut

Door #3 - snowed shut

Patrick dug a path to the front door so that we could use it:)

Aidan -  up to his thighs in snow:) 

I bundled up Asher:
. clothes and 2 pairs of socks
.  fleece body suit
.  water resistant body suit
. winter coat
. mitts, WARM hat, and boots
Even then, we could only keep him out for a short while.
We hiked down to the road (Luke was not impressed since the snow was above his knees making it difficult for him to walk), walked out on the pond and down by the ocean. 
Very windy, snowy, and cold!

View from the top of our hill.

The boys all worked on this tunnel. 
Pretty impressive if you ask me :)

Mastering the fork

Attempting to stab a bite.

Left hand provides a little assistance.

Mmmmm, sweet success!

What a silly, clever little boy!!!

First Ski Trip

Through the older boys' school, we have access to skiing for a very reasonable price:
$25 - Day Pass, Instruction & Rental of Equipment including helmet 

Up, up and away

Of course, what goes up must come down.

Drew chose snowboarding and did quite well 
(especially considering he had never even skied before).

Docking Station...

 not meant for a phone ;)

Almost got it.

 There... got it!

(said in the most drawn out, southern accent possible, and he kind of forgot to grab the phone too)

What a silly boy :)
