Freezing Cold Fun

                        

After thinking we were getting snow a couple of days before and waking up to nothing....




                          This is what we woke up to yesterday! 6 inches of freezing cold F-U-N!!


and after putting enough clothes on for 25-30 people we were ready to have a Snow day!



                            We don't have a sled so we drug the old air mattress out of the attic....
 

 
        Our driveway is pretty steep but not as steep as the road up next to our driveway...
 

 
                                                   So we thought we would give it a try...
 


Definitely better!!!


                         

                                                 Buuuud enjoyed digging in it more than anything!

                         

                           





Random I know...but I think trees like this look so pretty and unreal with snow on them! Don't they remind of those little fake trees you put in your miniature Christmas village?


              And after about an hour it was time to get warm again. We had a blast...it was like a little vacation, but without the travel time and packing. Although the same amount of laundry! Hope your day has been filled with freezing cold fun!

The walk back up that hill must have taken a lot of energy! I would only do that once, maybe. Good idea with the air mattress. Looks so lovely too.

I LOVE snow days! Never thought to us an air mattress before. How clever!!! Hope you are all warm and toasty now. =)

Lovely photos. =) I too, love those trees soaked in snow. Just can't get enough of 'em. All the snow has blown off of ours around our house. =( Looks like a fun day. We've had fun in the snow, but I won't lie..I'm kind of ready for it to be warm again.....

You have such a pretty house in a beautiful subdivision. You guys must have had a blast, seeing as how you don't have snow every day! I love snow and we have it four to five months out of the year.
Your trees and yard look lovely!
Hugs, Cindy

I am loving your air mattress as a sled! That is brilliant! Snow is so magical, isn't it?

I just love your house, it's so gorgeous! I can't wait to have my own nest in Maryville!
