We decided that with all of the new fresh snow that we needed to at least play in it for a little while.
Snow angels occurred.
And of course a little bit of sledding did too.
It brought back memories of when school was canceled for snow days growing up and I spent the entire day on one of these little saucers.
Andrew put together a perfect little run for us. He stood at the bottom to make sure we didn’t zoom off the yard and onto the sidewalks.
I also got a few snowballs thrown right at me that ended up going down my shirt which felt so nice… nothing like frozen water running down your back to wake you up.
Once it got dark we went into my parents’ house. They had some thick bread from the bakery that was screaming to be made into french toast for dinner.
And then our drive home took us 4 times longer than it normally does because of all of the snow and ice. We drove about 10 mph the entire way home.
I’ve got a few tangents for you this Tuesday morning!
*Brooke has joined in on the best way to interrupt Andrew when he is working on school.
*Do you need Christmas cookies? These are a MUST. I make these yearly and people always love them! They are Hot Chocolate Cookies and this year I added red and green chocolate chips which colored the marshmallows a bit.
*Snuggles with her bff before bed.
*Another one of our traditions that we do around here this time of year is that we read a little bit from this book each night before bed. It always brings me back to what matters the most.
*I wonder how many times these kids could watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer without getting sick of it. I’m guessing at least 100 times.
*I remember that same feeling of happiness that Brooke experiences anytime a new American Girl Doll catalogue shows up.
*My mom sent this one on over to me ha:)
*Another awesome gift idea for yourself or any runners in your life.
*Brooke proving to me that she is a lot faster than I am.
*My MIL made this beautiful pan of cinnamon rolls for Thanksgiving and I wonder if you can guess who took the middle piece out so perfectly;)
*A lot of Twister happened over Thanksgiving break. Turns out my lack of flexibility did not help me in this game.
Center piece of baked goods or the outer edge? Anyone else love their baked goods to be undercooked?
