Snow Fun

 Three of my baby brother's Grands were over to visit. 


They made snow angels. 


Xavier went for a shovel ride.


They had serious discussions.  They tromped through the woods.


And shared an icicle



It was a nice break in our day...it was just about 30 F but windy. After they left Neighbors Steve and Jo came over and shivered with us out on the patio.

  1. Oh! I had forgotten about shovel rides. My dad did that for us too!

  2. Isn’t it wonderful how people find ways to be together and still be safe?! Not the same, but maybe all the more precious because of the effort and creativity it takes. In a normal year we would be spending today baking loaves of Christmas bread for the neighbors but this year it’s only cards and a chat from six feet away. Today is always an exhausting day that starts early and ends in a mess, so I am sitting here this morning looking at the bright side — no cleanup!

  3. That is so great! I know we'd love to have some company outside to watch play and converse with. The mules will have to provide the entertainment.

  17. So much joy just watching them play!
    We folks in Ontario are going into lockdown at midnight Boxing Day. We're ready to just kick back and chill down here at the back forty.

  18. Our neighbor kids shuffle through the snow and then just go inside. The family of older kids don't bother to come outside. It was nice to have you brothers grands being active outside.

  19. Glad you got to see some grands and neighbors too. We just finished watching a Hallmark movie....it was very good! I'm good for one movie a night....my hubby could watch 3 or 4 in a row! Wishing you both a most wonderful and Blessed Christmas!

  22. What cuties!!! It's so nice you still have people stop by and visit. I never see my neighbors and they live right next door! LOL! Not the friendliest community.
