Snowpocalypse Now!

You'll be happy to know that we all survived Snowmageddon 2011 thanks to, among other things, heavy coats, ski gloves, a borrowed sled, snow ice cream, hot chocolate, Kahlua, Saran wrap (see below), and a grocery store within walking distance.

Henry did not want to take off his "Superman cape" (wizard cape) even for a neighborhood walk.

After a failed attempt to buy snow pants, we took drastic measures to keep Henry dry during sledding and snow angel-making: layer of pants, layer of Saran wrap, another layer of pants. Don't laugh, it worked. But that may be in large part because he wanted to come inside after about 45 minutes.

His favorite activity of all was probably ice-throwing.

If this were a video, it would probably look more like kids playing and less like a Civil War battlefield.

Even Claire got into the act -- check out these fancy snow boots Aunt Suzi gave her!

They remain as clean as they appear in this picture.
