On top of the hill

I think for the most part I'm a pretty fun, involved sort of mom. However lately, I've been reminded of my shortcomings. In particular, the fact that I am not a big fan of snow. Especially being out in the snow doing snow things like building snow people and snow forts, having snowball fights, sledding, all of that. Well today after the kids got home from school, I decided it was time to shake things up a bit. I put on nine layers and announced to the entire clan that we were going sledding. ALL of us. There were excited giggles and a disbelieving comment or two from my witty husband. After everyone was dressed, we piled our sleds and bodies in the van and drove the couple of miles to the really BIG hill.

Of course I took my camera so I could document that I have been sledding with my kids. They seem to have forgotten that I sledded with them last season or maybe it was two seasons ago?? At any rate, this was not the first time...but I admit, it doesn't happen often. I usually favor baking cookies and warming hot cocoa for when they return.

, we all had a really good time tonight...soooo maybe I need to document that too? : )

p.s. special thanks to Debbie for giving me a Kreativ Blogger Award yesterday. You made my day!

Ah yes, sledding! I haven't been for so long, but I think I remember the big hill you mention (the one that overlooks 71?)
