We love snow days at our house. The kids have a ritual when they think they might get a snow day. They wear their pajama's inside out and backward, do the snow dance, flush an ice cube down the toilet and sleep with a spoon. I have no idea where they got these ideas but this week it worked. We had 2 snow days in a row.

The first snow day we made our fun goodie plates for friends filled with nutter butter reindeer, Reese's peanut butter squares, candy cane cookies, toffee, and marshmallow wreaths. Brinli and David are getting really good in the kitchen.

The second day we went sledding at City Forest (our one hill in Midland).

Brinli and Aaron
Brooke was FREEZING!

Brinli went down the big jump and wasn't quite the same after that.

Aaron was so happy to be out of the house after being confined for a few days with the flu.

Mmmmm wish I lived close enough to have some of those goodies delivered to me. Not that my thighs need it. Those snow rituals are hilarious! Tasha's going to try that now, you know. Maybe I can counteract it by flushing scalding hot water down the toilet and sleeping with a fork?

Um.....I don't know if you noticed, but there are about 874 trees on the hill that Brinli and David are on!! Kind of hard to miss when your flying down a hill!!! By the way, Amie is right I am doing those rituals right now before she can counteract them!!HaHa, I am doing that in a evil laugh!! I want snow so bad, that looks like too much fun!!!!

Hey Miss Suzanne!! Your new look is fantastic--great job! Love the new pic--was that taken the night of the concert?
Your snow days sound delightful--making treats and sledding? So fun!
Oh, and would you mind changing the my link in your blogroll--it's think I originally gave you the wrong one, and then I just changed it last week.
Miss you guys!
