Saturday Snow Play

We got several inches of snow on Friday/Sat. morning!

When we went out to play, on Saturday, there were a couple of families sledding, in front of our house, down the hill. By Saturday morning, the snow was covered with a pretty thick layer of ice.



We don't own an actual sled so we decided to improvise! Michael got out a rubbermaid container top! Here is Carver trying to push his daddy down our driveway! As you can imagine... this didn't work.



However... this did! Michael pushed Carver down the driveway in this bucket and I would catch it! Carver enjoyed doing it a few times. He kept yelling to the people on the road, "Watch me guys... I'm doing it!"!! That boy always has to have an audience! :)

I do declare that you all have more snow than we do in Wisconsin! (hmm, well maybe not, ours has just been here for forever and we haven't gotten any new...) but isn't is so pretty! We have tons of sleds and hardly use them-perhaps snow doesn't fascinate us as much up north. Looks like a lot of fun and a lot of fun family time.

Oh, how fun! I enjoyed our (little bit) of snow from the window, but it's so fun to experience snow with a preschooler. Especially for us down here in the south where it seldom snows! I was listening to the news last night and they were interviewing a little boy who was saying something like, "Santa brought us this sled for Christmas and it works like a charm!" So cute. They've already cancelled our schools for tomorrow, so maybe Tuesday I'll get to hear about all kinds of snow adventures. Great pictures, especially that last one of Michael and Carver. (In the first one... have they torn down the house that burned? Is he rebuilding?)

How cute! Love the rubbermaid sled! I hope it will snow again when we come, just a few more weeks! I can't wait! :)

You guys rock with your creative thinking. Thanks for sharing the piccies. I thought of you (and Courtney) when hearing the weather reports of the pending snow storm. Looks like you made the best of it :)
