Snow Days, No More

Well, the snow is subsiding and our snowman's diet plan worked. So back to "normal" around here I guess.

My diet plan book will be out late March.
Pre-order yours today online.

Merry Christmas!

It's Christmas morning!!! You know what that means? That's right, PRESENTS!!! We got another present this year from our good friends Marty and Jeremy who live on the other side of the pond.

ooo...what do you think it is?

It didn't take us long to get the package open. We might not have thumbs but D.J. has razor wire on the teeth. So we ripped it open and LOOK!

Shaun the Sheep! Our favorite!

Erin told us that we could watch it right away. It was perfect because we were getting a little cabin fever from all the snow. It is still really bad here. But now we have something to do to pass the time instead of just watching Erin "work." So we got some pop and popcorn and put the DVD in. Which was an even bigger treat because Erin normally doesn't let us have popcorn on account of D.J.

Next year D.J. needs a popcorn snorkel for Christmas.

Ya!!!! Shaun!!!!

THANK YOU, Marty and Jeremy. We really really REALLY love your gift. And you saved Christmas for us. You see Erin ordered our Christmas presents and yours a long long time ago but on account of the weather the UPS guy can't deliever it. :( Erin is rather unhappy about it. She calls them daily about it. They won't even let her come and pick it up. But she says as soon as it comes we can redirect it to you guys in the UK. Anyway, we hope it doesn't spoil your Christmas. Merry Christmas, Marty, Jeremy and everyone else that reads the blog. We are expecting great adventures in the year 2009.

Snow Day - Day 5

Day 5 - Erin lost it. I think we made her snap. She got bundled up this morning, told us to stay, and walked out the door. She was gone for an awfully long time. But she finally came back with her coat off and sweating. She had with her some "essentials." Apparently she walked to the grocery store...and a few other places.

Ice cream, celery, and 6 packs of gum...we need to talk to Erin about what essentials are.

Erin also took some pictures to show us why we can't go out side.

No this is not a parking lot this is a road with abandoned cars.
Erin said it is probably people that can't get up the hill.

Winter Wonderland

Erin dropped her Starbucks in the snow.
I knew I smelled hot chocolate on her breath!

Snowman on Day 5

Snow Day Update

It's day 4 of the Seattle Snow Days. Supplies are running low. I'm trying to keep the sheep in good spirits but they have decreed that it is every sheep for themselves. I have had to separated them; as I found Jesse trying to gnaw on D.J.'s leg earlier today. Chris is worried about dying of dysentery before we can dig ourselves out. Jesse had acquired a British accented and keeps saying, "Please, Sir, can I have some more?" While D.J. made a crutch and hobbling around muttering about Scrooge. If this keeps up I'm going to have to revoke all book and computer game privileges from the sheep until they snap out of their cabin fevers. In related news, the snowman had started to get snowed in himself.

"I swear, whatever I do I just keep gaining weight.
I'm going on a diet as soon as the holidays are over."

Snow Day!

The other morning when we woke up the first thing we saw was the big fluffy snowflakes coming down. And a snow day was born! It was our first snow day and I was so excited. Erin went and showed us how much snow we got.

Seven inches of heaven

Erin said she had to work from home and told us to go play. Jesse didn't want to play and went and hid under the covers.

Brrr...snow is cold! Wake me when its over.

Chris and I decided to build our first snowman. Erin told us how to do it and then pushed us outside. First, you have to make the butt. So I got to make the snowman's butt...hehe...

Rolling the bottom

Chris made the belly. I said it should be a large belly like Santa. But Erin warned us about making it too big that we couldn't pick up and stack the balls.

Don't forget the head.

But we got it done. We got pretty dirty. Chris got smashed under the head for a second but we got the head on and even gave him an face.

"It's Alive!!!...well, kind of"

Ok, just a few more touches. Hope Erin didn't want her socks. They make better scarfs anyway.

Cheese!...ok it's cold. Let's go back inside.

Ya! All done! Maybe next time we will make a Snowsheep.
