Family fun in the winter sun

The past week has brought lots of fun in the snow! Here are a few glimpses of what we've been up to.Snow angels! Sweetpea doesn't look to sure of herself in this picture - I think she'd eaten too much snow and was starting to get cold. We had her all bundled up, but her little cheeks were still exposed. We took a lot of 20 minute trips outside, followed by hot chocolate warm up sessions in the living room under a warm blanket!

EmDee had the foresight to stop and pick up this little red sled on his way home from work Tuesday, just as the snow storm had started. A friend of mine was telling me this weekend that she went all over town looking for a sled on Friday, because everyone was sold out! Even though pulling Sweetpea on the sled was easy, it was great exercise walking in the snow. We took turns pulling the sled while the other rested, amidst shouts for "more!" and "faster!"

With the 1/2 inch of ice we had in the middle of the storm there were lots of icicles.

How much fun! My kids so miss living where there is snow--although I have to admit I am loving my 70 degree days in Jan. & Feb.! ;o)

Blessings!
