snow, snow, SNOW!!!!

there were some cold, hungry looking little birds on our patio this morning, so we grabbed some bread and headed out to feed them...

of course, that led to us wanting to play in the snow...

brrr...even the thin, metal fencing has a layer of ice!
very old sleds I bought at a garage sale to use for decor...but we didn't have anything else, and we really wanted to sled...
Evie gave up walking pretty quick. The snow is 8 inches deep, with a two layers of ice hidden in there, making it near impossible for her little legs to move!
first run down the hill--it works!
oooh...the snow really started coming down hard again...
daddy ripping through the snow!I didn't get any pictures of Evie or I on the sleds, but we both braved the hill, as well :) We all came in frozen, but warmed up with cocoa (love it!) and cookies...

daddy demonstrated his extreme discipline by only having ONE cookie...

I like your kind of cookies!

See ... you just can't improve on the old double-runner sled. Unless, of course, you enlarge it, put a motor on it and call it a snowmobile! But then, you can't hang it on the wall and call it decor.

We had sleds just like that when we lived in ALaska, and they worked the best! Here we have just those plastic roll up things, and while they work fine, it's just not really a "sled".

Your place looks like a real winter wonderland!

ANd that cookie could only be better with a few scoops of ice cream and chocolate syrup drizzled on it you know!
