We survived

Well we have made it through the blizzard of 2008! I'm not sure if I would really call it that but it was pretty bad.We were basically stuck in the house from Friday to yesterday.We tried to get out on Sat afternoon but there was another car stuck smack dab in front of our driveway and there was no getting around it and through the 3 foot snowdrift beside it.
It's hard to believe that Easter is in 2 weeks and it's supposed to be almost Spring here people!!!
What did I do stuck in the house for 2 days with 7 kids you might ask?? Well,we played alot with play-do,watched many movies,colored,ate,argued,fought and then argued and fought some more.It was rough going by yesterday so I made my escape and went to the grocery store and Target.I felt like a new woman by the time I came home!
While I was out I picked up one of my very fave magazines

I grew up with Victoria and when they stopped publishing it awhile back I really missed it.I was so glad when it came back last winter.
My mom and my aunt used to sit on the phone when the new issue came out and discuss every article and photo in it.I think it was an escape for them.My mom actually has the very 1st issue ever!I'm hoping she might pass it on to me someday.
I must say this new issue is just beautiful.I don't get much time to look at magazines but I actually sat down with this one and was so glad I did.

I made meatloaf and after dinner we watched "The Goonies" ,I love that movie. The kids don't seem to enjoy it as much as I do but I guess you have to be an 80s kid to really appreciate it.It's funny though because my 2 oldest love other movies from that time like "Brekfast Club" and "Sixteen Candles".It's quite surreal watching them again with your children.

Once again we "Sprung" forward an hour and we'll be disoriented for days.It's dark outside still and 2 of the kids have already left for school.

So anyway,this is a rambling post so I'll just share a few pics of the snow till tomorrow.

Come on Spring,I know you're out there!!!

Glad you all survived your weekend of being stuck inside. Hopefully that will be the end to the snow this year. Spring can't come soon enough for me.
