I can't believe it! It finally SNOWED after about 7 - 8 Years. Unfortunately, my two grandkids are sick so they didn't get to play in it, but Brittany and Kendall did. After they built the snowman in our churchyard, they came to me for accessories. So we went and put stick arms, gloves, scarf , button nose, coal eyes and boggin on him. And talk about craft inginuity, they picked up maple pods out of my yard for a mouth. So girls, gives us a new idea on a snowman mouth!
And since it hasn't snowed for so long here, we didn't have sleds. Well what is snow without a sled. So off we went and purchased two sleds. Enjoy the pictures of Britt and Kendall's snowman and our sledding trip.

Yep, this is me.

Now to the fun, First Brittany and Kendal sledding down the hill.

And last, but not least, this is how an old gram sleds down the hill! Hold on to your hat.LOL
Oops! where did the sled go? Brittany was at the bottom of the hill laughing so hard, she couldn't take the picture until it was done gone and I was rolling head over hills down the hill. Never crossed her mind I might have been hurt. (I wasn't) Poor little Kendal was the only one who tried to save me But once was enough for the old woman.LOL We had a blast. Now ask me again why I LOVE snow. Hope all that had snow had as much fun as we did.
