Anyone have a chainsaw and want to come over for a party?

Boy do we need one, a chainsaw that is, this snow/ice storm has been awful. Meredith and I are stuck at home for the third day in a row!!! Todd went to work today but I didn't have him try to get my car out before he left. I went out to start the car and move it down the drive way but it is stuck and won't budge. I chipped away at the ice under the tires for about an hour and said forget it. I'll try to work from home some today and maybe go in this weekend. Todd will be taking us to work and school tomorrow.
There are 240,000 homes here in Jefferson County with no electricity. We are very lucky!!!
We took Meredith out to play in the snow yesterday and she loved it, she didn't want to come back in!!!
Meredith trying to make a snow angel.



Throwing snow balls at mommy.


Yes before anyone asks Meredith was dressed very, very warmly!!! She has on 2 pair of pants, 2 pairs of socks, undershirt, long sleeve t-shirt, hooded jacket, winter coat, "carf" (scarf), hat, and her "globs" (gloves)
Here are some pics from yesterday.

This is the power line that feeds into our house. It still looks like that today, I hope a big truck or bus doesn't come down the street it will know it down.
This is Meredith wanting to go down and play on her swing and playhouse.



But this is why she couldn't. This tree is in a neighbours yard and it is bare on one side now. Only the side facing us has branches now, I hope they cut it down!!!




And this too. You can't even see her play house, it's under there somewhere. Part of this tree is laying on the neighbours garage too. It's time for the tree to come down. What's left of that is.

Winter Wonderland my foot!!! I don't like snow it is too hard to drive on and my car isn't the best on snow and ice or it may be the driver? I don't know.

Snow Day!!!!

This is a post from last March when we had our big snow. Enjoy this clip of Meredith.

Meredith out playing in the snow a little while ago.

Bad weather here today.

Here are some pictures from outside today. We woke up to 4-6 inches of snow on the ground, and it is now freezing rain. They are calling for at least an inch of ice then more snow by morning.
Todd and I stayed home and Meredith's school was closed today as was most of Louisville. And as of right now it isn't looking too good for tomorrow.
We did venture out today to take me to the doctor. I've had a cold for the past week and a half and I finally went to the DR. They only could get one doctor in today and they were taking patients in as they came, which was nice I didn't have to wait that long. I was discouraged by the way our streets up here were not cleared off. I understand the neighborhoods are last priority but it didn't look like Bardstown Road had been touched today!!!
So we made it to the DR I have a double ear infection WOOOHOOO!!!
We then went to Wal-Mart and got my meds. We planned to eat at the McDonalds in Walmart but they were closed because of the weather. So we ventured up Bardstown Road to another McDonalds that was open. And we got our first RedBox movies. So Meredith has been watching movies after nap time and watching the ice fall.

Here are a few pictures from today.




This is Todd doing his impression of Jim Cantore from the Weather Channel.

My poor ice covered car.
This is Todd standing on the snow/ice. It is so frozen you don't sink down in the snow.

Pictures from the past few months...

Has it really been that long since I updated my blog!!!!

I can't believe I haven't updated this blog since September, what is wrong with me???? I know I have a very active 2 year old that I spend all my free time with! :)

Life here in the Morris-Seales house is busy as always. Meredith is growing up so fast it is hard to believe.
We are 90% potty trained which is awesome!!! Meredith has taken off on that one all on her own. She is doing very well with her preschool, they keep telling us that Meredith is one of the smartest kiddos they have. Which we know is true by some of the things she comes up with to say!!!!

We are getting close to 2 important date in the next few months. Baby Blake will turn 1 March 21st, and Meredith will have been home with for 2 years in April. Lots of celebrations are headed our way.

I have made it one of my New Years Resolutions to manage my time more wisely, well as you can see I've broken that one already, here it is the 23rd of January and I'm just now getting around to updating our site. Oh well maybe I'll start that resolution today....

I will go through the pictures we've taken over the last few months and I will post new pictures this weekend.
