Snow Days!

We got a little snow overnight on Friday... by the time the kids got outside Saturday morning, it was sleeting. Saturday night it started to clear up, and everything froze over.

Even though it wasn't a lot, the kids have had a blast playing in it! Abbie came up with this Jacob-powered sled... made from a box and a jumprope. (I call it "mother is the necessity of invention" since she originally wanted to use the top to a plastic tub and I said 'no'!)

Zac is standing at the edge of our ice rink, otherwise known as our cul-de-sac! The two inches of ice on the roads led to church being cancelled today, and the threat of black ice has cancelled school on Monday.

Even though it's not deep, and is a little crunchy... it was snow!

The kids played outside more in the last two days than they have in the last four months. It was great to see them go out several times a day this weekend to play!

And, of course, after coming in from the cold, it was time for a cup of hot chocolate!

We had a cozy weekend of staying home, thankful for our warm home.....

relaxing.... reading.....

and playing games!

Looks like a perfectly wonderful snowy weekend! Love the picture of all 3 kids in the snow! It was kind of nice just to be "lazy" all weekend!
Celia, that game is Sequence & they also make a Sequence Jr. version with animals that our kids really enjoy playing!
