Snow, snow, snow!

We have gotten more snow in the past week then we got all of last winter! First we got a giant storm that dumped close to three feet of snow on us, on last Friday and Saturday. And then starting last night and going until tonight another foot and a half are coming! Since we live on top of a hill we are getting some big drifts created by the wind. And the icicles by our french doors are impressive.

My grandmother said that these looked like Chinese letters:

And of course I had to add a picture of Trixie in the sink:

Joseph William

Today Lil' Joey came home! He is sooooooo adorable. Ben was rather shocked when he first saw baby Joey and then wanted to hold the baby. (I wrote more about his birth and stuff on the post below this one.)

Ben is quite intrigued by Joseph:

The next few pictures were taken at the hospital:

Watching Joe arrive:

Holding him:

Ben waiting patiently (well sort of patiently) for a turn:

The hospital sent home a little cake and we weren't going to put any candle in it at all, because Rose has been repeating that he is "zero", but then John Paul found a '0' candle, and he stuck it in and we wished baby Joe a happy birthday:

The Best Weekend EVER!!!

We have been having the best weekend anyone could have. Yesterday my mom and dad went up to the hospital so that my mom could be induced. My Grandmother and Aunt Beth came over before my parents left. It started snowing yesterday afternoon and is still snowing today. We now have between 16-18 inch. and we could get up to 30 inch. The wind created huge drifts, some of which are the same height as me.

Last night at 10 pm my dad called us and told us about the baby.

At 9:17 pm weighing 6 lbs 13.6 ounces and being 19 in. long, Joseph William Anthony was born. My father told us he has a lot of black hair (although not as much as I had), a squashed little nose, and an Anthony face. We all can't wait to see him tomorrow and I will post pictures of him tomorrow afternoon! We are all so grateful that both Mom and baby are healthy and happy!

Plus we have a lot of snow to keep us busy! Earlier today for instance we went outside and tried to sled, but it is too deep for sledding. So instead we went over to the biggest drift, (as tall as me), and started making an igloo/tunnel. We didn't let Ben or Rose out because it is too deep for them. The snow is as tall as Benny!

I will post tomorrow with pictures!
