Embracing the Winter!!!

Embracing the Winter

I have found that the only way to enjoy the winter in the NE is to embrace it! The kids absolutely love the snow as well as Jim. C man had a game yesterday them Jim took him snowboarding afterwards. First time out this year besides the front yard and no one was hurting this morning. We got about 6 inches or so last night and the kids were excited to play in it this morning. Little E could not stand at the window and watch any longer so he joined in the fun. He had a blast sledding and playing. Mr M loved the ramp dad made and was able to get some good air! I even enjoyed a few runs down the driveway. It was so much fun watching the kids have fun in the snow and watching Jackson play with the neighbor dogs. Jim hooked Jackson up as the sled dog and he had fun pulling the kids down the hill while chasing a pig ear as a reward. Happy New Year to all...

Holiday fun!

Decking the Halls!

Getting ready for the holidays...yeah! We finally got our tree and as you can see hung the ornaments with care, well maybe a few broke! The kids were more excited to get on the frozen pond across the street for a little hockey. I love the photos of them playing with a few of the neighbor kids. I think that the trees and our house looked so pretty after all the snow and ice we had a few days before. Oh it's going to be a long winter, I can feel it already. Do us a on the cookie to feed our reindeer!

Snow Day

Snow Day

First snow day of the season!! The kids woke up at 8:00 and could not wait to get outside. They ran down the steps in time to catch dad before he went to work so he could get the snowboards down. This is the time we are glad we have a good sized hill in our front yard! They were in it all day playing with friends in the neighborhood. Little E wanted to join in the fun but he has such a bad cold and a little fever so he hung inside with Jackson and they had there own fun. They were so tired tonight everyone fell asleep quick. Good thing C has and early hockey game! Happy weekend to everyone.
