Dashing through the Snow!

Even though school was canceled everywhere yesterday, Ryan's preschool still held their Christmas party. When school was over, Sarah and I decided to be good moms and take our two CRAZY girls sledding. They had each been begging to go. We had them start out about half way up the little hill. I would stand at the top and hold the sled while they got on and then they would ZOOM down! They got a little braver and wanted to do it themselves, so they would trek back up the hill and slide down on their bellies. After watching and laughing for a bit, they came over to tell Sarah and I that they were going to the "tippy-top". We let them go and the crazy girls they are went FLYING down on their bellies again. They had so much fun and are a lot more brave than either Sarah or I gave them credit for. Ryan fell off once and rolled a bit, but that didn't deter her, she just walked back up and went again. Sarah took Pieper down a little "hill" once and she was good. I stuck Peyton on a saucer and pushed her down the little hill a couple of times, but she didn't seem too thrilled. Peyton's not much of a fan of clothes, so she kept kicking off her boots and socks and wouldn't keep her mittens on. When we left her hands were bright red! We had such a great time and Ryan has been begging to go again ever since!!

Sounds like fun! Wish I could've been there. It's a blizzard here too, but of course you know that, all the crazy Seattle weather comes straight down to Utah, thanks for that!

Gavin misses sledding. It was in the 70s today, so I don't see that happening any time soon. Your Christmas picture turned out beautiful!
