all right, all ready! - digi layout

Here is a layout that I did today. I've had this one on my mind for quite awhile and I'm really glad that I was able to do this one today and mark it off my "things to scrap" list! I'm hoping to work on some other things today, too, but we'll see!

Journaling says:

I love the snow. Really I do, but I am so sick of snow right now, I could almost scream. Our first big snow storm started on December 8th and it snowed for days. The kids have missed 6 days of school (so far!). Little did we know, that was just the beginning. We had our next big snow storm during Christmas Break. Well, it was officially a blizzard and is now known as "The Christmas Blizzard of 2009”. I must admit, that having a huge snow storm during Christmas was pretty darn cool, especially when we were opening presents while big snowflakes were falling from the sky. But, now here we are at the end of January and we have had several more encounters with Old Man Winter and he hasn't been very polite! Joe has had to use the snowblower more than he ever has before and than goodness we have a big one! Gracie and I have been going through some serious feelings of cabin fever! She and I have made it to the mall as many times as we can, so that she can play in their play area, run around, and just be silly. It feels like we have spent every day of the past two months covered with a thick, dark cloud. The sunny days have been so rare. And, the roads are horrible! We went a long time with most roads being about half their width, so two lane roads were one and 4 lane roads were just two. There was so much snow and no place to put it all, so it came into the street for several feet on each side of the road. Now, when I hear that we are expecting more snow, I just cringe! I want to see the curbs on the street, I want to see the ground, I want to see something besides WHITE! But, like I said, I really do love the snow.....just not this much!

Oh Dianne, I so feel your pain! I'm a transplant from NYC, now living in Florida and we moved because I was so very tired of the cold and snow. Your LO is beautiful and I hope you have some melting soon!

We have had so much snow this year it's crazy...but I have to admit...we don't get enough for me...I love the color choices and the pics...I also love the title and I was driving down Broadway (main street in my little town) and looking at the snow piled everywhere I thought, gosh I need to take pix....thanx for the inspiration!
