We had just enough snow to go sledding yesterday! Me-oh-my, what fun. Dressing 4 kids for snow is a sweaty job. Sledding with Adelle down the "mountain" then piggy backing her up the mountain is another sweaty job. I earned my cookies and hot chocolate yesterday.
Adelle ready to sled.
Hope, Hillary and Alayna heading down the hill.
Hudson - he's pretty sure deer can't see him or smell him out here. :)
Hannah, Hudson, Pierce and Harper - that's a lot of weight on one sled. Super fast.
Harper and Pierce are buddies.
So, a while back some friends of ours were moving and didn't want to haul all of their Y2K supply with them. Seriously. I have buckets of wheat, honey, lentils and salt. We're set. Have you ever gotten honey out of a 5 gallon bucket in the winter? It's a workout.
Anyway, we can survive on lentils and bread for a long time.
For Christmas the kids got Build-A-Bear gift cards from Cousin Daniel. The boys put theirs on ebay and used the money to buy new lego sets they'd been saving for. The girls and I went to Build-A-Bear and had a blast picking out their new cozy little friends. Pardon the slick, polished homeschool look. We're fresh out of the tub. ;) (And we homeschool so...)
So, people (grandma, Amanda, Shannon etc) have been on me to keep this blog updated. I'm so swamped all the time. I sit down at the computer and think, man I should probably be doing ... a lot of other things. Be blessed family, this is for you. :)
