Snow Day 1

We had such a wonderful time playing in the snow! Taylor had 2 little friends from Girl Scouts spend the night on Friday. We took them to see The Tooth Fairy Friday afternoon and when we came out of the movie the world was white! When we woke up Saturday morning the kids were thrilled with the amount of snow on the ground. After breakfast we dressed in our snow gear and headed out. Hope and Chris even came over and joined us with their new sleds! After a snowball fight in the front yard and sledding down our hills we piled in the Expedition and headed to the park at the bottom of our subdivison. It has great hills and the kids had a blast. There was only 2 other families and a man with his dog down there so it was great! The kids had such fun soaring down the hills. Matt and Chris had a race....Matt won! Madison didn't like it too much b/c the hills were so big that you really flew down them. She did go down a few times with me but was happy to play on the snow covered playground :) When we got back everyone was cold and wet and so we came in for hot chocolate while Matt made us a snowman....what a nice daddy! We had such a great time.

The kids all scattering as snowballs bombard them!

Madison hiding behind a tree...she didn't like the snowballs being thrown at her

But she loved throwing them at people

Caleb had a blast sledding

And so did Taylor

The hill on the side yard proved to be a great sledding hill
