Second Snow

 We got a couple inches of very powdery snow dropped on us which made for a few days of fun sledding, snowman building, igloo making, and sbowball fighting. We did school in the evenings and at night so we could play outside during the day.

 I LOVE the snow as much as they do!

 Daddy worked from home for one day since his office closed. He took breaks to help build a snowman and go sledding for a little while.

 Oh..and throw LOTS of snowballs:)

 I also love baking and cooking yummy things for my snow bunnies. This time I made cinnamon roll cake, tater tot breakfast casserole, homemade hot chocolate (which stayed warm all day in the crock pot so they could have it every time they came in for dry clothes:) oatmeal chocolate chip/heath cookies, then a yummy dinner of baked shrimp and linguini with broccoli.
 Mr. Snowman!  Since the snow was powdery it was hard but we managed to build a snowman complete with buttons, gumball eyes, a carrot nose, and craisins for a mouth. Ephram wanted him to wear his hat and said it was an ephram snowman.

 This guy had croup which turned into a bad cold so he spent more time inside being my helper in the kitchen.

 We went sledding after lunch by way of the hybrid and the girls rode in the trunk to make room for the sleds. It even closed!  Usually we would walk but since Ephram wasn't feeling well we drove to the hill, stayed a while, then Brian, Ephram, and I drove home while the other three stayed for more sledding.

 WHEE!!! Cailey and I tested the hill out first
 we went all the way to the curb!

 Then I went with the boys and Kinsey

 they went with each other and alone...

 Kinsey decided to shovel the snow into a pile then JUMP into it as if it were a pile of leaves. Silly girl.
