The Snowy Siege

I wish, with a blog post title like Snowy Siege, that I had some cool pictures of snow forts or igloos or snowball fights but I do not. No, these are pictures of what happens to my tiny house when cold boys come in out of the frigid weather to play. I stood in one spot and took these three pictures. I decided NOT to take pictures of the boy's bedroom or playroom...it may have been just too much for some and didn't want to stress anyone during this holiday season.

I believe that this is four boys worth of snow clothing, an array of Nerf ammunition and a scooter just inside my front door.
Just on the other side of the couch to the right of the above picture we have a snack bowl on the table, a train set that takes up most of the floor along with some real estate under the couch, and a Nerf shooting Transformer.

Turn around from the top picture and peer into my dining room/kitchen area. Here we have first aid kit on the counter, Whoonu board game, fresh fruit snacks and a cool Nerf gun on my table. Now you know why all of the Nerf ammo was by my front door! Under the table is socks that I am sure are wet from playing outside and then there's Oliver who grabbed the scooter from the previous photo and took it for a spin. Santa hats, computer bags, lunch bags (how that ended up on the floor I do not know!), monster trucks and whatever else I can't make out are strewn about.

And because I'm a dork at times, here is Oliver's snow angel that I've crudely modified. It makes me laugh...

That is the only way Oliver can be depicted as an angel, ironically.

At least it looks like the majority of the wet stuff ended up somewhat close if not on the towel you so carefully put on the floor to protect it...

P.S. Just because Ollie's horns show once in a while doesn't mean he isn't an angel all the time...ALL my grandkids are perfect angels!!!

I so get the "wet clothes everywhere...driving me crazy" thing! Todd was FREAKING out that the kids were making messes with their toys..to which I replied "What in the heck are they supposed to do today???" Ahhh Todd and his "neat freak little mind". 'Love Ollie's Angel pic...it's perfect! :)

Your house justifies mine...thank you for that! I don't have the wet clothes all over the place...but the toys are outrageously out-of-control!!!

Actually I'm impressed by how clean the floor looks underneath all that--we're still at the every meal brings an avalanche of food onto the floor.
