I'm just gonna be honest...for hours we have done nothing much but watch Christmas movies in our pjs, eat, and play on ice with my nephew, Andrew! It has been FABULOUS!
Oh, we got in a little school reading tonight, but whateva...the neighbors didn't have school and they needed our front hill for speed and our expertise in sledding!
We had to help them! I mean we have to love our neighbors, right?
Yep, it was quite a sacrifice for us, but we managed!
We had a variety of amazing sporting events to participate in:
which brought lots of smiles and laughter!
Dog pulling! (Not sure the pup liked this so much...it's not my pup!)
and multiple dog sledding! (I dunno...)
Belly boarding! (This is really fun but you should take your camera OUT of your coat pocket FIRST!)
Ice surfing! (Proceed with caution here as falling from a standing position is much worse than falling off a sled on the ground! Don't ask how I found that out!)
Multi-person sledding! (This doesn't always end well!)
Ice licking! (REALLY don't recommend this...especially the yellow ice!)
Ice golfing! (This got stopped pretty quickly as we were reminded of our friend Coleton's head getting split open the last time golf clubs were involved with a large group!)
Ice hockey! (This went okay.)
Ice boogey-boarding! (Relatively safe as long as you lean hard left and steer clear of the bright red fire hydrant!)
Ice snow boarding! (NO! NO! NO!)
Ice wiping-out! (Enough said!)
Ice crawling (back up the hill)! (This was the exhausting part...and scary part for the older participants!)
And we had people helping one another:
Moms shoving their kids hands into gloves! (Gotta make sure they are on there good and we have no frostbite!)
And friends pulling their friends across slippery ice patches by their hoods! (Yikes Trey...what were ya thinkin' boy?)
We had warm homemade chicken pot pie...(so yummy!)
and cozy blankets!
A day to remember for sure!
