So, as most of you know, Philadelphia got DUMPED on last night and yesterday with two pretty significant storms back to back. We got about 6" yesterday and another 16" last's insane.

Really pretty, but insane. It reminds me a lot of last winter, but now that I am not working and don't HAVE to drive anywhere, my anxiety over snow has changed into loving it. Especially since Mr. Pit can now work remotely when he needs to, it's nice that he can be home (even if he is on work conference calls all day, he's still here!)

Anyways, we are hunkered in for the day, we might take a walk to Wawa later for hoagies for lunch, but otherwise I did laundry last night and ran the dishwasher today...exciting!

Here are some pictures of what we're dealing with!

The view out the back deck...the snow is almost up to the bottom of the chairs!

The view out the front door, you couldn't even tell you have to step down to get to the front walk!

And one last picture just for fun...this is where I found Little Pit this morning when Mr. Pit was out shoveling the driveway...too cute!

She is always SO interested in where Daddy is, it's totally adorable :)

Hope everyone is having a great week, and enjoying the snow if you have it!

Trying to decide...

if we like the snow...

at first...not so much

Ok, so it's not SO bad when Mom is holding me and I don't have to be IN it...

Ugh, they are going to take pictures of me no matter what...I give up!

Happy Snow Day!

Little Pit's Christmas

Just wanted to share a few pictures of Little Pit and her Christmas extravaganza :)

She really didn't get a lot of presents, but the ones she did get she LOVES.
She loves her walker/ride on pink car

She's not big enough to really walk behind it, but she likes to pretend with our help

What you can sort of see in the picture is her Leap Frog Groove and Learn music table. She is pretty much obsessed with it, and I think it will be a great learning tool for her for the next few years :)

Anyways, gotta run as Little Pit is up in her crib NOT happy that she is supposed to be napping...have a great week!

A day at Longwood

Yesterday afternoon, my parents, Little Pit and I took an adventure to Longwood Gardens . Located in Kennett Square, PA, it is certainly a property worth visiting, especially during the holidays!

In short, it was magnificent. I had always heard that the Christmas lights were amazing, but I hadn't realized how intricate they would be and just how much time and effort it must take to get all those lights up on ALL those trees! And to get all the wreaths made, and the HUGE Christmas trees in the must take DAYS to decorate!

So, here are some pictures from our trip, I didn't bring our good DSLR camera, so the pictures aren't great and the flash is WAY too bright, it was better in person, so next year you should go!!

They decorate a ton of trees outside, and then they have a "Christmas Tour" through the indoor conservancy.
Some of the lit trees as we were leaving, isn't it romantic?

These trees had SO many lights wound up them, and they went SO high, I was marvelling at the engineering of just getting the lights up there! (and that's Little Pit all bundled in her stroller, you can't even see her face but you can see one of her little ears on her hat ha!)
One of the many indoor trees

Lillies, my FAVORITE :)

This picture doesn't do this hanging basket justice, it was HUGE!

Same with this picture, this fern was taller than me!

The main room of the conservatory, isn't it awesome?

So, that was our trip yesterday, I am glad I finally went, after 30 years of living less than 20 miles from it!

I am hoping we can make it back around Easter, apparently they just have acres and acres of tulips and hyacinths, it must smell delicious!

Hope everyone is having a great week :)
