Fun in the snow

Having some sledding fun. We have 4-5 inches of snow. Unfortunately it iced over last night. Sledding today was kind of scary. We made the kids go to a smaller hill because everyone kept zinging across the road. It was like a sheet of ice. There was just no way to stop yourself. We had grownups lining the road to catch the kids. The smaller hill wasn't so bad.

Reed and mommy sledding before the ice hit.

Back home now. Warming up. Safe and sound.


Yesterday on the way home from sledding we saw a guy on a four wheeler racing up and down the street and spinning around in our cul-de-sac. I said something about him doing donuts.

When Reed came downstairs this morning Wes asked him if he was ready for breakfast. Reed asked, "Is that guy still selling donuts?"

The Greatest Show On Earth!

Wow! We had so much fun at the circus today. It was the first time for the kids. This is what we gave Cate for her birthday instead of a party this year. They were so excited by it all. Their favorite things were the tiger act, horses, dogs...okay anything with animals. The girls getting shot out of the cannon were so cool. Reed said, "I really love the circus. It was so "magic." He thought the "fireworks" caused the magic. Cate was so excited that she saw real white tigers. She has a stuffed animal that we got from the Creation Museum that is her favorite thing right now.

I really enjoyed the elephants. Wes said his favorite part was the cannons. The performers are so talented and creative. The set was amazing. If you've never been, I highly recommend it.

Solid, Liquid or GAS?

So we're sitting around the dinner table enjoying our bowls of leftover chili (with beans) and quizzing the kids on solids, liquid or gas. We would call out something like water, table, milk, ice... and the kids would see who could guess it first. Then all of a sudden Reed's beans kicked in with a distinctive roar from the rear end and we all said... GAS!

We're all laughing our heads off when Reed said I'm gonna do it again. I said no don't do that you might have an accident. Wes said ask Uncle Clay what it's called when that happens. Reed said... SOLID!

We were looking at cards with the days of the week written on them.

Cate's Gift

I heard Cate playing a new song in the other room. When she was finished she ran to find me and asked if I had heard. I said yes it was beautiful. She said she was playing for God. The next time she played it she let me make the video. Precious girl.
