Whatcha gonna do when you have been snowed in for the better part of a week?? Well, if you are Emerson then you are going to insist on wearing your pink hat around the house all day and you are just gonna roll with the punches and work from home.
Then you are gonna get really tired from working so hard and subsequently lay in your mom's lap and pout for a while.
If you are are Evan, you are just gonna lay on the couch and watch t.v. because you are only 12 weeks old and too young for workin.
Then you are gonna eat so much that your face starts to look like this....
But that's ok b/c you are really cute.
If you are me, you are gonna think to yourself, "I should go outside and take a picture of the down spouts. They are so pretty with all of the icicles on them." Then you are going to walk out the front door wearing slippers instead of proper snow boots, and you are going to slip and fall backwards down these stone steps (which are actually covered in a thin sheet of ice but you can't tell at all).
Then you are going to get up, look around and make sure none of the neighbors saw you, go get your camera that flew 25 feet into some far off bushes, and take the stupid pictures anyway (but you aren't gonna say the word 'stupid' in front of your daughter b/c she repeats everything you say).
See. Aren't the pretty.
Totally worth almost being paralyzed for.....
Then you are going to take loads of Advil and warm baths for the next few days to try to relieve the pain and bruising on your backside. And then you are going to remember that you have to drive through the ice to take your daughter to her first dentist appointment ever. And you aren't gonna mind because she is so cute.
And then you are going to shamelessly plug your friend Dr. Brian Jones and his practice, Upstate Pediatric Dentistry, because they are awesome (if they can handle Emerson, they can handle anyone). And then you are going to shamelessly plug his wife Lindsey who has a fun little blog that you can find here. That is what we do when we get snowed in. Oh and we might have played in the snow a little. But only a little b/c all Em's snow stuff was with Garrett in Myrtle Beach. Go figure.
