The Blizzard of 2011

I'm not a big fan of winter.  So, when our weather forecast was described in one word, "Blizzard", I was not thrilled.  This is our 5th winter in the Chicago area and I have to say we are pretty lucky with our snow fall numbers compared to our friends back East.  However, this time we got all the snow that they didn't get, and more!
Everything is shut down today, and likely tomorrow while we try to dig out of all this.  Even though it's way too cold to really enjoy the snow, we did let the kids come out for about 10 minutes for the novelty of it.  Here are some of the pictures we took this morning.

Tia was the trooper, wanting to stay out as long as possible.  Gia and I headed in once our fingers got cold, and made soup!  She definitely takes after her Mama.

We hope everyone is warm and cozy on this snowy, winter day!
