Snow Day

We woke up this morning to snow!  It had snowed last night around dinner time and we just figured it was a fluke and was gone because the weather men hadn't said anything about snow (and neither had anyone else). So, it was quite a surprise when Chris let Slang out at 1 am and there was snow on everything. The even bigger surprise was that it was still around when we woke up. Because there was snow, Chris got the day off! We had such a fun day. We went over to the Kale's house because they have a hill and a sled and spent some time playing in the snow. It was so much fun!

Cadence getting ready to go out in it the first time. She has just woken up and is thrilled. Can't you tell?

Chris helped Shae make a snow angel. She didn't like it because her "pants got all wet"

Slang's snow shoes :)

Ready to play at the Kale's house

Cadence's first sledding adventure. 

This is me (ashleigh) on the sled. Evan pushed me and I fell off. Chris is at the bottom of the hill taping my first ever sledding experience. I'm thankful for all the support. 

Hot Chocolate break. 

Sweet Baby Emily inside and out. 

Our snow man. He's really a sad little snow man but it was the best we could do. The first picture is him as a giant and the second is him for real. You have to look for him on the trampoline. 

Cadence and Mary had so much fun sliding down the hill on their bottoms. 

Cadence's snowball

Garrett and Evan were sledding too. They were better at it than us :)

Hi, my name's Mandy Devine. I have a 3 year old named Ella. We both love to hang out with our friends...especially when snow is involved. How about remembering your peeps over here next time there's fun to be had!! : ) Looks like you guys had a great time. Love the pics.

Several thoughts...

1. Baby Emily has a LOT of hair!
2. Slang looks thrilled about his snow shoes... seriously, where did you get them? They look like they have reflectors on them... do they?
3. Your girl has some crazy hair!
4. The Andersen Winter Wonderland is so fun! Snow makes everything magical. :)
5. Your Frosty is really small! And your "giant" picture of him is quite deceptive!
6. Who would have thought that you'd actually have a use for all that PINK snow get-up? ;)

I remember those doggie boots! I think Ragie gave those to Slang! Your snow day looks like a blast!

Liz, you're right. I can't believe that we actually got to use those snow suits. Next we'll send them to you ;) Cadence actually had to use the bigger one because she's so tall and Mary wore the smaller one.

Slang's boots are reflective. You have to wait til I get the video finished and you can see him run in them. It's HILARIOUS!! He sounds like a Clydesdale. If I can ever figure it out (or Chris will help me) I'll have the video finished.
