Snowpocolypse 2010

Here are a few pics from the big snowstorm. We were pretty snowed in for a couple days, so we snuggled up on the couch, made a fire in the fireplace, watched a lot of Mary Poppins, and even baked Rachel a cake.

This was how much snow we had about halfway through the storm...

Nothing stopped us from getting outside to have some fun...not even the unplowed roads and downed power lines...
Two days after the storm and there are still no commuter trains coming through town (no buses or metro either)...but it's beautiful and sunny now and perfect for bundling up and taking a stroller ride...
The big snowstorm was a lot of fun, and luckily we didn't lose power (unlike some of our friends). Kensington got almost 3 feet of snow and there is another foot forecasted to fall tomorrow.

rachel turns 2...

Rachel turned 2 on February 4th. Thanks to everyone who helped us celebrate.

These days her favorite things are:
*toddler gymnastics class
*eating chili, turkey pepperoni, chipotle, and of course cupcakes!
*reading books, especially Max and Ruby, Personal Penguin, and Only One You.
*sledding on a boogie board and trying to eat snow when mommy and daddy aren't looking.
*singing "Baby Beluga," "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," and her madeup lyrics to the Dora the Explorer theme song.

Here are a few recent pictures of her enjoying her birthday....trying on the fairy costume that her friend Ava gave her, visiting the fish and gorillas at the zoo on her birthday, eating her favorite: Mexican food, and taking her balloons into the bath with her.
