Snowmageddon, Snownado, Snowpocalypse, Snowtastrophe and Snowcecream!

Well you would think it's the end of the world if you listen to the weather men in Oklahoma sometimes. I love them though, they provide sheer entertainment sometimes! Much to my surprise they were actually right and Tuesday morning we woke up to a winter wonderland! When Cloee woke up at 2 to eat I actually said the nerd words "Holy snow balls batman they were right it is snowmageddon!' Our car has barricaded behind 3-4 ft snow drifts on each side and this is the view looking outside my back door!

I have to admit I love being snowed in with my hubs! Every minute we get to spend together before he deploys is so precious and no matter if were cleaning, packing, playing video games or whatever, every single second is extremely valuable! Tuesday we made Snowcecream! (snow ice cream) I thought it was pretty good but the hubs said it just tasted like sugar snow he was expecting it to taste like Braums or something! We did good and got tons of packing done however Wednesday we were nothing but lazy! We played video games, made fried zucchini and squash and some yummy veggie stew! Around 4 the hubs got word that his work was going to be open today so he bundled up and dug out the car and he attempted to drive to the grocery store that is half a mile away and not much to my surprise he got stuck and had to walk home to get the shovel! Luckily my Facebook cry for help was answered and he was rescued! 

Though I'm loving being home with the hubs for a few days it's been a little rough going where the kids are concerned! Tuesday during the day Benjamin had some Gerber Yogurt and around Midnight he started throwing up. I know it could have been anything but in the last 3 -4 months he has gotten sick 3 times and each time it was after eating Gerber Yogurt! UGH! He threw up several times through the night and through the day and last night woke with a fever of 101.7! He had a long miserable night but this morning seems to be doing better. His fever is almost back to normal and hes keeping his drinks down! He finally had a little bit of chicken noodle soup and loved it and so far has kept it down! Hopefully he keeps getting better and better!

Cloee has been pretty good for the most part! Last night she slept in her bed all night without a single fuss! Not straight through the night she did wake up for 2 feedings but she went 4 hours then 2 ½ then 5! I am so looking forward to the day when she sleeps a solid 8 hours! She is now 10 weeks old and her smiles and coos are adorable! Her brother loves her to pieces and just wants to play with her!

Today we are enjoying another snow day because there is no way after getting stuck with in a half mile of home that he's gonna drive all the way to work! For breakfast I made some awesome potato cakes and then for an afternoon snack I made some chocolate covered bananas! MMMM Most of today has been spent playing sonic the hedgehog 2 on our wii! My hubs was convinced he was going to beat the game and he got sooo close (with my help of course) but no luck this time! Now its time to get some cleaning on and pray that the snow expected next week holds off or is light because we absolutely have to move next week!

Hopefully the hubs can get to work tomorrow! If not… well another day of fun it will be! I will take it if I can have it for sure!!! I have enjoyed Snomageddon but please old man winter be easy on us next week!!!!
