Good Things about the CRAZY Weather

The BEAUTIFUL thing about the sun being warm during the day and it dipping to -10C at night is what the Sun does to the snow!!!

It melts the top layers just enough that when it freezes again at night you have the BEST TOBOGONNING SNOW EVER!! And when I say EVER, I mean scary fast!

There is a great hill across the street from us, so we headed there to sunbathe go sledding.

I had a TON of great pics to post, but I've been distracted with a GIGANTIC shipment of furniture that has been dropped off in my dining room. (More on that later..ahem Nancy!!)

Anyway, I will just post this pic that pretty much depicts the afternoon.
Here I am, all nice and comfy, lying on the hill with the sun on my face. The tiny little dots down below? That would be my eldest and her friend slowly and breathlessly making their way up the hill. (Ha!!!! Ha!!!) Wake me up when you get back girls!

Haha, that's awesome! You're so lucky to have a hill like that so close. That's the best kind of exercise because it's fun! I'm looking forward to learning more about this mysterious furniture shipment....

Isn't it nice once your kids are old enough to drag themselves and their sleds back up the hill themselves?

I pick Crazy #1 up from the bus stop with her sled and I keep trying to convince her to pull me home, but she still hasn't gone for that one!
