Home Grown Fun

This last week was ... it was two weeks long, okay? The snowpocalypse happened. It was beautiful. And ominous. And eternal. And tons of fun.

Sixteen inches and five days after it all started, we were able to leave the house. We went to Target for coffee and creamer (HELLOOOOO), and Starbucks for real nourishment. We came home to find the teenagers in the middle of the cul-de-sac doing this:

Smack in the middle. Having a great time. See?

We went out again to bring Starbucks and groceries to homebound friends and came back to find the snow creature had changed. Morphed. For the better? You tell me:

Maybelline poses so well:

We had five teenagers for the weekend - life's not fun enough with just three, so we took in two more. They got busy after the birthday cake (one chose to spend his birthday with us), and decided to scare my Hunny. Here's the transformation of Goof Ball:

A work in progress:

He, um, wasn't happy about the Mamarazzi:


Oatmeal Head was keeping dad busy with video games. The end result was not what they'd hoped (Hunny just stared and said it was disturbing), but the inspiration was there and Maybelline subjected herself to a transformation:

Kids these days. I hope your weekend was as much fun as mine!

Until I write again ...

Rats! I was hoping that the clowns would scare Hunny more than they did! I like the snow"man!"

Now THAT'S the way to spend snow days. Great imagination and hilarity. Looks like never a dull moment at your place. Kids like that gotta have splendid mom and dad. LOL!

Nothing like a few snow days for lots of fun and looks like you made the most of them. It seems we are headed into another snow day here Wednesday!
