Snowed In!

We ended up with about 7 inches of snow yesterday. Let me just say we made the most out of it! We had a ton of fun! I ran the kids up the road about a mile to sled and snow board. It is really tough and tiring to run in 7 inches of snow!!! Then, after we played for a while we headed back home.... Karlton had driven Lilee to meet us because we knew she would not make it that far and would be too cold before we even got there. But everyone except Josiah and I rode back with Karlton. I ran home.... To warm up I made soup and hot chocolate for lunch and then we made now cream for dessert. After baths to warm the kids up we put them to bed for a nap. Well....the little kids anyway. While they rested I got to enjoy my Christmas present. I snuggled up in front of my new fire place to read!!!! Ahhhh...it was so nice and warm! The kids were already out of school for teachers workday yesterday, but today we got our first snow day of the year. Karlton is trying to go to work today, I am praying the roads are safe enough!


Here is how we spent our 2nd Snow day this year..........................














This is me trying to snow board.......



When I was finally getting the hang of it..... Joel came down on his sled and took me out!



But, I finally made it to the bottom.......
