Snow Day

We had lots of fluffy snow today. More than my kids can resist.The whining and the begging got to me and I agreed to take them sledding on the hill near my parents if they would leave me alone during nap time to work on Christmas projects. I got ripped off. Oh well, that is what the wee hours of the night are for right?

At least they had fun.

You wouldn't believe this was just a little hill in a retention pond would you?

The kids there had built a little jump so you could get some lift to your ride.

It turned into a day of putting all the snow clothes on, then into the dryer, then on again then into the dryer. My dryer is tired and I am a little grumpy.

Hard to grump at two faces like this. I did manage to find a way though.

Their snow men are getting a little taller as Brittany gets taller.

Sort of feel like this myself.

Wow! The snow looks like so much fun. We travelled every other Christmas to my mom's family in Ohio and Michigan and always enjoyed seeing snow then because we certainly never got it in the South. It's hard to get derailed from your crafting plans, but you'll get back on track today. Blessings, :) Tammy

Savannah still has her curls. Anthony's girlfriend used her flat iron to straighten it. We all had to take a second look to realize it was her. Pretty drastic change.
