Covered...

in snow that is!! We woke up to this yesterday morning! It snowed most of the day, but it didn't keep us from enjoying the outside world. Troy worked on scraping off the vehicles while Daniel and I continually pelted him with snowballs! We figured once he had had enough he might want to get in on the action.

I was right!

I nailed him in the back of the head (I didn't know I had such good aim!) and he came after us! He bypassed Daniel and caught me and rolled me around in the snow. Don't worry I had snow flying up at him every chance I got and finally he gave me mercy. Of course then 35 pounds of Daniel landed on top of me!

Troy also took Daniel for a ride on the 4-wheeler and while they were gone I made a pile of snowballs for their return. As they came up the street, I pelted them and I heard Troy yelling "Mama's got a pile of ammunition, duck.....".


Needless to say we had a good time!

Then today we remembered that we had an innertube made for lakes, but we thought we'd blow it up and give it a try. Troy worked really hard making the lane AND the "launcher" as he called it right at the end!! These are the results....

Looks like fun! That's a LOT of snow. I had almost forgotten what it looked like since leaving Moscow.

Oh my goodness! What fun! I'm dying about the launcher... I'm so tenative.. I would be like. "Is he going to get hurt?" I can hear my boys and Chris now saying... "No Mom." LOL!

It looks like you've had a great weekend of family fun! And you have some priceless action shots in there, too, to remember it!

Looks like you had a wonderful time! I'm jealous of your snow! We were just west of everything. I was disappointed.

I don't think I want to be near your family in snow, though! : )

What fun pictures! Although I don't miss living in an area where it snows, I do love the look of a beautiful snowy morning :)

Oh super cool!!! I am very jealous of your snow. It sure sounds *and looks* like your family knows how to have fun on a snow day!

Oh my goodness...what beautiful snow pictures! It just looks like so much fun. I grew up in Buffalo, NY and remember vividly those beautiful freshly fallen snow days. And the tobagonning. I'm a little jealous right now. Although I don't think I could ever live in it again, it sure is beautiful.

What a beautiful snowfall! It looks like you had a blast. We didn't get the snow we expected last night..just ice and 18 degrees :(

I want to go sledding like you!
