Making the best out of ANOTHER snowy day...

It seems like lately that it snows, and snows, and then snows some more, and now February and the kids have had it! Confined to the house while the clouds are showering us AGAIN with white fluffy flakes. So, as I am watching the kids run like crazy around the house driving the other crazy, I decide it is time we just brave the cold, the snow, and the wind, and just get OUT of the house!! Even I wanted OUT of the house, and I hate the cold!! They wanted to sled so I strapped them around my waist with a horse lead rope and took off running with them!! They laughed and I got a great workout in!! Mike took pictures because he thought I was nuts!! After I took each kid down and back up the road I pushed them down the hills in the back yard. Clay got cold first so he went in with Mike but Kaya stayed out another hour making snow angels, sliding down the slide, and sledding. It was nice to get out of the house and it wasn't that cold. I am sure there will be lots more snowy winter days as I continue to dream of warm weather, horseback riding, and swimming!!!
