The night before it snowed, school had already been cancelled for the following day and Eleanor's teachers told her to wear her pajamas inside out, which she did. She also did this for the rest of the week.
The first day, while it was snowing, Chris went out to shovel the driveway and of course the girls wanted to join. They ended up shoveling using a shovel for the fireplace and a dust pan, hah! Then they built a fort! We got almost 8 inches of snow total.
Our neighbors had a bonfire two days in a row and we ended up burning our Christmas tree that afternoon.
The day after the snow fell, we went sledding at our local hill (which Eleanor calls "the nut hill" because someone once said, "that hill is nuts") and Eleanor ended up in our local paper, the Virginia Gazette! The first picture is from the paper by Jimmy LaRoue and the rest are just pictures from Chris' phone. The twins even came with us though they got pulled out and back on a sled and stayed snuggled into their car seats the entire time. Jane only went down two or three times before she decided she was done.

Overall we spent a ton of time in pajamas inside. We made waffles one morning and ate them with whipped cream. Thanks for the waffle maker Jessie!
The next day we went to our friends' house to sled. It was easier because we could leave the babies inside. Jane actually started coming around to the snow at this point and had a great time!
As much fun as we had, I'm looking forward to when we don't have babies to bundle and everyone can walk!
