NHL decided that he wanted to go outside and help daddy to dig out of the snow (this was JL’s 2nd of 3 trips out today). This of course meant that my almost 7 month pregnant self had to waddle out too. So just before noon we went outside for about an hour. NHL had a blast he helped JL to dig out the driveway and one of the cars to start. Every so often the little guy wanted me to drag him up and down the street in his sled. Since it was so easy to pull I was nice and gave him several rides.
Eventually I went into the house to get the keys for the car so JL could move the cars and clean more of the driveway. At almost 1:00 NHL came in for soup and JL followed about 30 minutes later. He finished one of the cars and went back out at 4:40 tonight to finish the other car and rake the roof. We already have two ice damns that have formed. We are just hoping that we do not have a repeat performance from last year where one of them let water in and it leaked throughout the house. *sigh*
Here are some photos from earlier today.
This is our house with the approximately 19″ of snow:

Check out those big blue eyes and rosey cheeks:
The cars are all uncovered now and we are going to sleep well (especially JL) from all of the fresh air. Tomorrow should be interesting for everyone after two days home.
