A Surprise: Our first morning

Our first night in the house we happily crashed, all piled up on our air mattresses and sleeping bags, despite the shift to mountain time, which is an hour earlier. I couldn’t even tell you what time it was. I had cried too many times for one day, the kids sat still for too many hours & Luke was probably the most drained by all our antics. We slept like babies with the fire lighting up the living room, except Trip, who acted out his dreams half the night, hollering for Kolbe-dog & griping at Joss occasionally. We woke up to the early morning light to discover our new world blanketed in fluffy white snow. Exciting, for the moment yes. Until a few hours in, we realized our truckloads of belongings would never make it up the inclines in 6 inches of snow. So we enjoyed the snow falling, went out to eat, hit the mall for a little distraction & waited it out. The kids were thrilled about the snow, but I wasn’t prepared! I had grabbed each of us 1 set of warmer jammies, one sweat pants & an extra pair of socks. No water proof shoes, no warm coats. Mom fail! They never even knew & enjoyed the snow just the same, maybe a little wetter & colder.

I hired this ridiculously handsome guy to shovel the snow. He's very helpful!
