Snow day!

When we bought this house, we had two little boy's.... we picked the lot because of the Jr. High right on the back of our yard, we figured it would be a good place for the boy's to run and play, and of course, sledding in the winter....

10yrs late, two more little children are sledding on the Jr. High hill, along with other's that always come to do the same thing, sometimes it easily becomes a hill covered with friends, and the fun can last for hours, as it did on this day, the kids had THREE shifts of friends that day, and by the end of the day we had soaked four pairs of socks, two bibs, four pairs of jeans.. there was a lot of clothing, mittens, hats and gloves piled up in front of the fireplace by the end of the day.. what an invaluable addition to my home the fireplace has been, I couldn't help but smile at the thought of my Parent's helping us to buy that, and for Papa coming to run the gas line and make it work, the sunken front room was not a place we spent much time until the fireplace came and warmed it up!
