Brrrrrrrrrrr, Baby It's Cold Outside!!

It's been chilly and gray. Quite depressing really. We had a little bit of snow, enough for the kids to need the pond cleared off so they could play hockey
It's been quiet. Charlie and Zoe got a new bed.
But for some reason they didn't want to sleep in it.
And then Charlie decided he liked it after all.
And Zoe thought it was ok too.
But she has other favorite spots too.
Howard painted the new guest room. It's all ready for guests!!
Pretty quiet around here. One morning I was sitting at my desk thinking that I hadn't even seen a single deer yet this winter when not 10 minutes later I look out the window and there was a deer across the street in the neighbors yard. She sprinted across the street, followed by two friends and back onto the frozen pond.
Last Thursday was our Leader in Me Parent's Night. I was worried that the weather would force us to cancel but we only got a small amount of snow so the night went on without problems. Another good turn out this year so everyone was happy!
Then things started getting exciting! This happened!!
Meet Murphy, my new Grand Dog!! So precious. We went down to see him on Saturday. He's a golden retreiver and very sweet. Scott and Emily definitely have their hands full, especially in the middle of winter!!
Today was our first snow day of the school year! It started Saturday night and didn't stop until this morning! We got over 12" of snow. Today on the back deck it was up to my knees!!
These two would love to get out and enjoy it!!
But that won't be happening any time soon. On Saturday I took them up to the high school to stretch their legs. They sniffed around for a few minutes and then Charlie headed across the field, straight for the woods. Zoe followed but she soon returned to me when I called. Charlie didn't. Zoe and I had both gotten back into the car and were waiting for a few minutes and then Charlie finally returned. We won't be doing that again any time soon!
So that's it for exciting news. Just got word there's another snow day tomorrow. Guess the back roads are still difficult to manuver. Snow that deep has to be moved out of the way, you can't go through it!
And they are predicting more snow for tomorrow night, though not much, just 1-3 inches.
