Snow Day Part II

We are all hoping that this storm is not an indication of what our winter will be like. Almost 2 feet of snow fell at our little place in CO. India knew that daddy's back hurts sometimes when he shovels so she decided to step up and help out. You can also see that she took it upon herself to burrow a path through the yard for us. She's that go getter type of girl, right after her Mommy's heart. Jordyn watched from the window most of the time. This snow was really wet and taller than her as she's crawling so it wasn't a good combination for her. Thinking of those of you still experiencing 70+ degree weather!

Snow Day






It's only October and we have already had our first snow days. In Colorado this is an absolute rarity!! The only time we have snow days are when there is a state of emergency or extended snow for a few days in a row. It has been snowing for 24 hours now and we have over a foot so far. The weather report says that it will not stop until tomorrow at 6PM and we could get another foot. WOW!!!!
Here are some photos from today. Poor Jordyn is in her makeshift snow gear. Please don't make fun of her.We have off tomorrow as well so there should be much more fun in the snow.
Linwood has off this whole week for his Fall Break. He is just thrilled to have his girls by his side for 2 days :-) Hee, hee, hee...

Hiking





We had an amazingly warm weekend here in Denver and took advantage of it to go hiking. It was soooo much fun and the girls loved it! India is turning into more of a vivrant little girl everyday. Her new favorite phrase is "Is that better Mommy?" She is such a sweetheart and a great helper. Jordyn is still her happy go lucky self. She is always smiling and racing to give hugs and kisses whenever a loved one comes into the room. They are a great combination. We'll see if the fun continues when Jordyn can fight back :)

"Mom..."



"....Dad, What's that?" "What's that Mommy?" These are India's favorite words these days. When we say favorite we mean they are the first words out of her mouth when she wakes up and the last ones before she goes to sleep.

Jordyn is getting stronger and walking with the help of her car/walker. This has now become the girls' favorite toy and neither of them wants to share. They are getting pretty good at taking turns...India by choice, Jordyn by force
