"Polar Vortex" plus L's 3rd birthday!

Unfortunately, these 2 things happened at the same time so there was no party for Little Miss L.  Actually, has the temps dropped outside her fever climbed inside and we had a rough couple days altogether.  Monday (day 2 of both winter weather and fever) we were actually afraid we were going to have to find a way to get to the ER...but I spoke to our pediatrician and piped water into her mouth with a medicine dropper and we got her to wake up and drink crisis averted.   There was a bit of stress those days.  But we all survived, stayed warm, and all's well that ends well.

Prepped for the "winter Vortex".  Lots of wood stacked inside and since we'd already been sledding our winter clothes were drying by the fire

Our front door completely iced over and shut.
one sick little girl

perked up enough for birthday cake with Nan and Pap

But not enough to "blow" all over the whole cake!

Opening barbies from Nan and Pap (incidentally barbie shoes hurt slightly less than legoes when you step on them in the dark)

She got the movie Brave from us and a Merida dress to wear while she watches it

Boys got some time in the snow!

And M and I worked on an igloo for a while.

We had to quit here.  We couldn't get the top closed.  maybe next time!

And that's all I got for now!  :)
