Polar Vortex

Blogging has gotten pushed aside because we are in a polar vortex.  Oh, you didn't know that...We also had snow, crazy winds and blizzard like conditions this week.  Out of the month of January, Landon has only had 8 full days of school.  School has been cancelled six days and they've had at least 4 late starts/early outs.  #worldslongestchristmasbreak.

Here are the boys standing next to the snow pile on the corner of our gravel road.  Thankfully, it wasn't too bad for us.  I was able to ride in to work with Jer on Monday morning and was only 1/2 hr. late.
 These other photos I took off KWWL's facebook page.  Crazy weather.

This is probably the most crazy picture, as they said it was Davis corners just west of Cresco.  Hard to believe. 
In the words of my six year old Landon. "Mom, I don't like winter anymore."

Funny {faces}

Oh how this kid cracks me up!  Like I posted on Jer's facebook page the other day...No one ever says he looks like his Mom.

A weekend in the life...

For the first time in, I don't know how long, we didn't leave the house all weekend.  As in, when I leave for work in a few minutes, the last time we were out was when I came home from work on Friday. 

With temps so frigid, we decided to hunker down all weekend.  The boys are getting a little stir crazy and Landon was bummed that school was cancelled for today (record low temps), but we managed to have a fun weekend all to ourselves. 
Here are a few highlights.
