What we do on a cold winters day....

School let out early one day a few weeks ago and it got icey quick! I am glad we have such good friends that live right next door (on both sides of us) we had a party! The kids did crafts- meet Harry the Spider and Buzz the Bumble Bee.
Before it got too icey Michael and Don ventured out to Papa Murphy's and got 5 BIG pizzas. The Crowders, Tiff and Reg, the Brinkleys, and the Minguses all came over and we chowed down before the kids starting begging to sled and ice skate. We put them off for a bit because it was still sleeting (they finger painted and made the matchbox cars "sled" through the paint.

Around 6:30 the sleet let up and there was a THICK sheet of ice all over the neighborhood. We all got out our sleds and bundled up. (and a can on PAM spray to add some speed) Harper loved going down the bottom half of our driveway. 
 Devin took our kids down and Hannah rode with me- then the kids just "ice skated" around the cul-de-sac while the adults had some fun. We have quite the competitive crowd and a VERY steep driveway! The guys got the golf carts out and did some doughnuts in the cul-de-sac. It was fun to slide all the way down the road, then have the golf cart waiting to drive you back to the driveway. I hope we get some real snow so we can do it again!


  1. Seriously, we need some snow! Glad you guys made the best of some not so great weather!

  2. Has Charlotte gotten any this year? That ice was the only thing we got! I am highly disappointed!
