Snowed In: 2016

Happy Monday Friends! How was everyone's weekend?  If you follow me on instagram or snapchat (eastcoastnat) you know we were hit with the big snowstorm of 2016.  We had a record 29.2 inches in one storm which is crazy!

The Governor of Maryland issued a state of emergency on Friday at noon and wanted everyone off the roads by rush hour.  I thought that was a little excessive but once the snow started at 1pm on Friday I could see why.  We spent the whole weekend snowed in but it was nice to have an excuse to stay home with no where to go.  Miller loved everything about the snow and asked to play in it all day.  Poor Matthew was sick all weekend so he hasn't had a chance to play in the snow yet.  Hoping we can get him out for a little bit today.

I was a little nervous about being stuck inside with two toddlers but it actually wasn't that bad and playing in the snow exhausted Miller so he took great naps and slept well at night.  A win win for us.

First snow is our new house

So excited to go play in the snow!

We took him out Saturday during the blizzard so we could start shoveling and he loved every minute of it.  We had to drag him in despite it being freezing.

Poor little Matthew had to stay inside and play all weekend.  It was actually a good weekend for him to be sick since we didn't have any plans anyway.

I don't think we'll be using our front door until April :(  We had no where else to put the snow from the driveway so we had to block the front walkway.

As much as I hate snow and being cold I was got out there to shovel since I figured I would be burning lots of calories and ease the guilt for all the food and alcohol I consumed ;)

On Sunday the conditions were much more bearable so we were able to finish shoveling and our little helper was out there in full force.


In case you missed this video, I can't help but share because his personality and the things he says are so hysterical these days.  We have no idea where he get half this stuff!



How was your weekend?  Were you snowed in?  Did you enjoy it?



Linking up with Biana for Weekending

  7. I love that your little guy was enjoying the shoveling…you should send him my way for and extra set of hands. :) I think my husband and I will be digging forever here in B'more. Although I'm with you on the calorie burning thought…I can enjoy a few glasses knowing I'm doing the hard work later. The quiet days inside have been nice though!

  19. Look at your little helper! Too cute!!

    Yup 36 inches here in Germantown-uugh! These are the days I am glad I am still in a townhouse with an HOA which means all I have to shovel out is my car.

    My daughter got sick 2 days ago- so instead of being able to get out of the house, we are stuck with coughs, sniffles and a mild fever. I was hoping to get out off the house today bbut not looking good.

    Beautiful house!
