Aiden had been asking me all day if he could go outside and play in the snow. So, after hearing him ask approximately 45632 times (I overexagerate, I know) we headed outside to play. I talked Jaime into building a snowman with him since he loved the Frosty the Snowman movie so much. We didn't have shovels, so we used dust pans instead. Also, I couldn't find buttons to use for the eyes and I didn't have carrots for the nose - so we had to improvise. We used Oreo mini's for the eyes, a stick for the nose, and Hershey Kisses for the mouth. I don't think it turned out too bad, and Aiden loved him!
I have only been out of the house once since Sunday night. To say that I am looking forward to getting out of the house again would be an understatement! I have watched so much TV in the past couple of days that I have no desire to watch TV at this point. I have caught up on every show on my DVR, read all the unread blog posts in my Google Reader, finished the first Harry Potter book, finished all the laundry, and cleaned the house from top to bottom. Who knew being so productive could be so boring?
They are saying the temperatures here will get up into the low 40's tomorrow - which is higher than they've been all week. Hopefully the rest of this ice will melt and I will finally be able to get out of the house. I can't wait for Spring! I'm ready to be able to go to the park with Aiden again and to be able to enjoy being outside. So, next September when I'm complaining about the heat and humidity and saying that I can't wait for cooler temperatures....someone PLEASE remind me that I can't stand winter and the cold!
