Yay!! We finally had a snow day!! The snow began Sunday morning, and didn't stop until sometime after midnight.
All of my windows are covered in bright colored stars, hearts and snowflakes, but you can see the snow coming down behind them. :)
We got the phone call for no school on Sunday night. So, first thing Monday morning we were out sledding!! We have a great sledding spot, this is the cow field right across the road from us.
This old farm house is empty. It is the original homestead of our closest neighbors. They now live in a brick house about 1/4 mile down the road from us but gave us permission to sled in their field. There are lots of great hills to sled down.
This was my girl's first time sledding down the 'big hill'.
She had some good wipe outs, but we survived the experience without any injuries or tears.
It's really hard to get good sledding pictures. Most of m y photos were just a big cloud of snow as the kid went whizzing past.
We had a snowball fight!
We even made snowmen!!
We had to fit in all our winter fun into this one snow day. We played outside almost all day. Drank lots of hot cocoa and had hot soup in homemade bread bowls for dinner. We made snow ice cream and snow angels. The kids had a wonderful day, but were sad to see the snow already beginning to melt before the day was over.
