SNOW! Thats right, snow in Seattle!

We were all stoked to find snow falling outside. Its rare here so when it comes we all get so excited. Not to mention chaos often occurs. It snowed a little bit on Sunday then more Sunday night. By Monday afternoon it had almost all melted so Bret, the kids and I headed up to mall to get Cameron a nice warm coat since his from last year was a little small. We were in the mall maybe an hour and we came out and it was like a blizzard! The wind was whipping the snow around and it was falling so fast, accumulating quickly. We of course started home but since we live in Seattle no one was moving we were stuck up on the hill, cars sliding all over the place... Finally we got onto the highway but even there we were barely moving, there were cars slid off the road here and there and semis jack knifed blocking the road, it was crazy. Luckily we made it home safely. Bret got to stay home from work on Tuesday and Wednesday so we enjoyed a nice long week at home together as a family. It gave us some fun time to go out and play!
Cameron and I built this little mini snowman during Connors nap one day:) I wanted to build a bigger one but he was too impatient.
Bret and Cameron starting on a big snowman, but the snow wasnt compacting well so the changed their plans and just played.

Even Connor got to go out in the snow for a little bit!
