Playing in the Snow!!

Last night the snow just got crazy. A lot worse than I was expecting! JC, who had been playing basketball at the church with Luke and some guys, ended up just spending the night at our house because there was no way he would have been able to drive to his house. Luckily, Luke and I just live right down the street from the church. So he stayed in the newly carpeted attic.

Today when the snowstorm was finally finished, the three of us headed to Luke's parents house to play in the snow :-) Luke's sister and her husband and their two dogs came too. I can't even remember the last time I went sled riding, and it was SO MUCH FUN!!!!

We started out making some paths with the four-wheeler. What a blast!
Here are Luke and JC
And then I got a turn to ride
It wasn't long before the whole thing was caked in snow
And it only got stuck once! :-P
Once the paths were made, we went sled riding! The snow was so deep, (easily up to my knees, and up to my waist in some places where it had drifted) we had to go down the hill four or five times before it was packed down enough, but after that it was really fun!! Then Luke and JC would take turns taking people back up the hill on the four-wheeler. It worked out pretty well :-)
The dogs really enjoyed it! Caly is a Great Dane, so she had no trouble walking in the snow. But poor Charlie got pretty much swallowed by the snow. He was so cute! His body would disappear under the snow, and then he would leap up, and jump up and down in it...so cute! I wish I would have gotten a video!
Luke loved running around with Caly :-)
It was just an overall beautiful day, and I got some great pictures!
Luke's mom made some delicious cookies and hot cocoa...yum! It warmed us right up :-)
Now I'm making potato soup for dinner (my favorite!!) And we're going to settle in upstairs and watch the Cavs game and a movie! This is one of the best days I can remember in a long time :-)

  2. Beautiful snow pictures! ATV'ing is one of our favorite things to do when it snows. My parents always keep a couple of them, along with an old canoe. We hook it up to the ATV and call it "Casnoeing" Potato soup is one of my favorites!
