It's funny though, since living in The South, we stopped buying all that cold-winter-gear and we got rid of a bunch of snowboots and such. For some reason, we kept the boys' kid-sized snowshovels. Which, surprisingly, we have been using occasionally...as bug smashers.
But that day, they finally got to be used in The South for their intended purpose.
We also got rid of all of our sleds in our move from Nebraska, so we improvised.
With my old cookie sheets.
On the iced over road.
*Bonus, those cookie sheets are very shiny on the bottom now.
A little while later, we headed over to our friends' house. On the way there, we found a Fire-Snowman. Quite the contradiction! Our friends have a perfect sledding hill. They also had more cardboard covered in trash bags and beachboards sleds. Whatever works!
Miss Banana finally decided she at least wanted to put her feet in the snow. But that was about all she wanted to have to do with it.
The best part was the extra days off of school--even Dr. C's university was cancelled. Loved it!!!
I think this winter in The South has been one of my favorite winters ever.
