Our snow day
Evelyn cooked us breakfast--toast with syrup. She was primly disorganized and excited to surprise us, even though I had to get down the plates, pull the syrup out of the fridge, take the lid off, etc. She made us close our eyes while she set the table. In this picture she's exclaiming "My cookiiiiing!"
She's getting over some crud, but we went out to the balcony just for a little while.
It had stopped snowing before we even woke up, but she wanted me to take a snowflake-catching picture of her anyway. She initially wanted me to take the picture inside.
Here's our snowblob!
She wanted to go outside again a little before dinner, so we bundled her back up and watched through the window as she ambled around and ate a lot of snow. She chucked a few handfuls off the balcony and climbed on top of her kiddie pool.
We watched a bunch of movies, and played some games, and worked some puzzles. I cooked a little, and Cody slept a lot. Evelyn pulled out toys, called and texted people (through me mostly), and mostly goofed around. We had power, a fridge full of food, an apartment full of entertainment, and nowhere to be. It was a really great day.
