Not by feet, although today we are supposed to get a doozy, but by time it seems as if we are always heading into another snow burden/storm. It has stopped us from doing a lot of outside winter activities. Events are canceled each weekend due to the weather. Last weekend was a bad storm it shut down the highways and most side roads a huge deadly pile up on the interstate. Luckily we were not out in it.
I did try to take the kids to church as the snow just began falling with no sucess. I got them all dressed in cute Christmas attire.
I love when they are clean, cute, and matching.
I even through on my holiday sweater.
We piled in the truck and started our way. But we did not get far. Going up the first hill the truck started slideing, there was no way I was going to make it down that hill or up the next and down again, and that hill is a steeper hill. The kids were yelling were going off the cliff and that's exactly what I did. The cliff was nothing more than very much sloping corn fields. I pulled off into the fields because although I was sliding on the roads I was fine in the field. I pulled in enough to turn around and start back down. Once back to the main road we slid a little but made it home fine. Later that day we heard how another car slide down that big hill and caused a wreck. So glad it was not us and we turned around.
Once home the boys decided to have church at the house. Gregory played some carols on the keyboard, then both boys led a bible study.
Followed by a game of tick tac toe because that is how all the best services end.
All afternoon plans canceled. I took a couple pics of the kids.
My upside down Smiley.
Awe my sweet princess. I am glad she is getting over the making faces in photo stage.
Maybe not, gross! Ugh
My so sweet and precious Grace.
And Evan he loves to cuddle.
Really there was nothing to do but selfies.
Except play in the snow and I was not into that.
Even though it is a blue coat its Faith.
There is a better smile!
As you can imagine that never last long. And our stove becomes a drying spot in the winter. It works great.
But why the boys froze, me and the little girls stayed warm trying for another picture.
There was nothing more to the oranges than they were hungry and I told them if they would just smile they could have an orange, cuties actually.
I gave up still trying for some great holiday pictures this but we still have 10 days to try!!! wow.
