Dashing through the snow…

In a one horse open sleigh redneck open sleigh, O’er the hills we go…IMG_3414_31_1

Barking all the way…Esther just couldn’t wrap her brain around what was going on.

The kids were having a BLAST!  I even took a ride—I did get some video of all the madness.  (i.e. the horses running on the other side of the fence, the dog barking, the kids squealing and laughing, myself screaming to “be careful”) 

At one point I heard Mario ask, “Wanna go out in the field and find some hills so we can get some air?!!”

They (the kids) thought that sounded like a great idea, but since they were getting enough “air” in our yard to keep my blood pressure up, I talked them out of it.

Esther—If you can’t beat ‘em…join em’:

She finally decided to forget jumping up at horses and barking at them to stop…so she ran a hundred laps around the house instead.

After sledding we went in and warmed up.  In the afternoon we came back out and built a snowman and snowwoman.

We had fun in the snow, now I’m ready for springtime, flowers, warm weather and sunshine.

SO CUTE and SO FUNNY!!! I love your "sleigh!" And what cute snowpeople!!! I read your comment and have not thought about "Amelia Bedelia" in YEARS...but I loved her! I am going to look for some of those books for Connor next time at the library. Hope you are doing well. Maybe we can get together soon?!?!?
