Can't think of a better way to spend the Winter Solstice...

For this being the shortest day of the year...we certainly packed a whole lot into it! It started with the drive out to Kimbilio to spend the day with my parents. You know...over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house in the snow...or something like that!

Jacob has had a rather lengthy list of all of the things he wants to do in the snow. I believe we managed to check most of them off today...

Build a huge snow man...check

Have a snowball fight...check

Eat snow...check (okay, this one is Kyleigh, but it was on her brother's list as well)

Go sledding...check...and he was fast too! Had the longest run of any of us.

Somehow manage to convince your long-suffering cousin to pull you back up the hill...check.

Even Kokoo got in on the sledding! Truth be was her idea in the first place!

Of course, Kyleigh had to give it a try...held ever so protectively in her cousin's arms!

Watch Mommy spin as she sleds down the hill too...check.

Yep. Dang near perfect day. I can imagine that if we lived somewhere where the snow showed up early in the season and stuck around we'd get mighty tired of it. I won't be sorry to see it go in a week or so, but we're certainly enjoying it while we can!
