That leads us to today, the first Snow Day of 2010. Yes, Snow Day, as in the kids are out of school because of an inch of snow. At this very moment I hear my aunt and uncle in North Carolina laughing hysterically. Thank goodness she is from Kentucky and knows how Kentucky comes to a standstill because of a snowflake or the forecast of a possible snowflake.
Check out this video of Mr. Perfection finding the best spot to start the sled. You can't just jump in and let it ride, it takes some planning.
Yes, Caleb has hot cocoa on his face. He got to giggling while he was drinking and it splattered everywhere.
The neighbor girls Peyton and Serena came over to try out the hillside. Then the Petitt boys stopped by briefly to see what fun was being had at the Peterson household. They couldn't stay long because they didn't have enough warm gear on, but they did get a few sled rides in before headed back home for fun of their own.
They have played so hard that now they have the munchies. Hopefully they will go to bed early tonight :) I imagine it will be back to school tomorrow. Watching them play in the snow today brought back many fond memories of playing in the snow with my brother, Kevin. Our neighbor Amanda had a great hill for sledding and we would have great fun playing in the ice on our creek, making pretend animal tracks up the hillside, and rolling giant snow balls around the yard. It is fun to watch my boys making memories of their own and enjoying the best of childhood. Now I better go make some mashed potatoes for a tired little boy, hopefully he won't notice that they are red potatoes.
