Nila picking out cookies for Santa. She said "Santa will like this one" about the Christmas tree one. She put two on the plate and then said "One for Nila"

Getting the milk ready.

Nila is in Snow Heaven here. She has this bucket that she has me fill with the shovel then she takes it to a random pile of snow and uses her little hand to empty it out pinch by pinch. We are supose to have more snow tonight and then there is another 10 to 12 inch storm brewing and some freezing rain to top it all off. Welcome back ot Michigan.

Nila loves to play in the street. We were outside shoveling the driveway (Day three of shoveling and it needs it again now) and the plow trucks went by. After Nila saw them she said "I not go in the street because I not want to get hit by the truck."

More Snow Today



We have more snow from last night and this morning. Right now the snow is still coming down hard. I can barely see across the street. It is hard to see how much accumulation we have already in just two days.

Nila loves the snow

We got a LOT of snow here on Friday. Yesterday it cleared up a bit and Nila and I went out to play. I showed her how to make snow angels. She LOVED that she could walk on top of the hard snow by the road and I fell through.

I am jumping around a little bit with the order of these photos. I have not had a chance to upload the photos from my camera for awhile.
Well the story behind this photo is that my mom found a snowglobe for Nila to play with and almost imediatly she noticed that "The Snowman only has one arm." So we looked at it and decided that we could probably fix him right up. This is Nila drying him off before the glue operation.
