I was not pleased to wake up to 5 inches of snow on Monday morning.  We live on a super hilly, one-lane road.  We were not able to leave the house until Friday afternoon!  Talk about stir crazy!  We worked from home the whole week and Adam also managed to build a cardboard/tape sled or two!Photobucket

    The snow was pretty for about a day and then all the ice was horrible.

    Looks like you guys managed well though, I like the cardboard sled!!!

    It was crazy hearing about all the snow in Atlanta/Alabama/etc. I am from Alabama but i live in Calgary now so I'm not used to snow. Sometimes I wish we got snowed in!

    This is one snowy winter in Atlanta, glad you could enjoy it.

    We're getting a lot of snow where we are in NJ too, but we are at least a little more ready for it!

    It's been snowy here lately too. Last year was worse here. Winter is not over yet.

  9. Jeanette said...

    The best part is though, is that this is a memory that will last forever

    I could only imagine having to be stuck in our house for 5 days. No fun! But sounds like you made the best of it. Look how much fun you are having?

    Love the cardboard sleds! I have tried that so many times, but never really been successful in gaining speed with cardboard.

  13. KBraden said...

  14. Mommy to a lil lady[bug] said...

    Wow! That is a lot of snow and so cold! We don't get snow here in Texas, but I can imagine how stir crazy it must have been not being about to get out.

    Visiting from Natural Parents Network!

    I would so love to get snowed in... except for not being able to make any money. heh I'm working toward a work at home position, though. Nice photos!

  18. Slee said...

    Love this photo series. Improvised sleds are the best.

  19. Chelsey said...

    That looks like so much fun! Good job on the sleds -- especially the "how to" illustrations! lol...

    We haven't been sledding this season. The snow doesn't stay long enough for us to get to the hill!

  20. blueviolet said...

    Redneck sledding! Yeehah!

  21. Lilac City Momma said...

    So much fun!! Your dd looks adorable in her winter gear =)

  22. Only Prettier said...

  23. Life Is A SandCastle said...

    Looks like y'all made the best of the snow:) I'm further south, so no snow here.

  24. CARMEN said...

    What a pretty spot.. Happy WW! :)

  25. Marina @ My Busy Children said...

    Adam is such a handy man. The sled is awesome!

  26. fredamans said...

    Looks like a lot of fun!

  27. TV's Take said...

    LOVE that picture of you sledding - that's what being snowed-in is all about. I also LOVE Lilly's puffy coat. That girl is just too cute

  28. Texas Type A Mom said...

    I LOVE your sled! That's being thrifty AND creative!

  29. Lauren @ Hobo Mama said...

    That is excellent and looks like fun! I give him points for making do. Hope you weren't experiencing too much cabin fever.

  30. GrammyMouseTails said...

    Yikes! I hope you did not run out of food necessities! but it is amazing how resourceful you can become when your kids need to get outside! looks fun!

    I've lived in Michigan my whole life, so I can't imagine how exciting snow can be!

    Great snow pictures! Thanks for stopping by on WW

  33. Mellisa Rock said...

    And I thought it was bad for us...we live on a hill also and have to use the neighbor's driveway - otherwise there would be no getting out for us either!

  34. Michelle said...

    Glad to hear you were able to stay home and safe. I love that sled you all made. We don't get much snow here and live in a pretty flat area so we don't own a sled. My two always want to go sledding when we get snow. I'll have to try my hand at making a sled next snow...we'll see.
