People-Free Winter Pics

Date February 11, 2010

In addition to taking the sledding pictures from my last post, I also walked around the neighborhood and got some people-free winter pics (as always, click on the image to view a larger version).

A Neighborhood Sledfest

Date February 10, 2010

Last weekend — starting on Friday, actually — we got just over a foot of snow. That was enough to make for plenty of outdoor activity, yet not so much as to keep us truly snowbound at home. On Saturday after lunch, Julie headed down to the end of our street with our kids and [...]

Julie on the Farm

Benton on the Farm

Date February 5, 2010

I really am taking the easy way out with these posts from our trip to West Virginia last weekend! I already posted the video of Benton on the 4-wheeler, but I snapped a few other pictures that seemed worth sharing. Going up… …and going down Pausing for a picture en route to the river with [...]

Doughnuts, anyone?

Date February 1, 2010

More from our weekend in West Virginia… Benton and I went for several 4-wheeler rides and just couldn’t resist having a little fun in the snow (as always, if you can’t play the video directly, just click on the link and you should get to the YouTube page where it will play):

Molly Goes Sledding

Date January 31, 2010

We headed to West Virginia for the weekend and were surprised when it snowed for most of the day on Saturday. Pleasantly surprised! The boys barely waited until the ground was covered before heading out to slide down the hill, despite the 12-degree weather. Julie got the idea to give Molly a ride down the [...]

First Snow Day of the Year

Date January 13, 2010

Last Friday was the first snow day of the year (and of the school year). Two of Benton’s best friends, Josh and Jack, came over in the afternoon and then spent the night (and then spent all day Saturday at our house and out sledding with Julie). On Friday afternoon, the three boys…and Alana…spent several [...]

First Snowfall of the Season

Date December 19, 2009

We got our first real snowfall last night. Benton helped shovel the drive and then immediately headed into the yard to gather more snow to make a fort. Within an hour, all three kids were outside. Alana made little snowmen: Carson found the experience exhilarating: Even Molly got a little frisky (with Anabel, from next [...]

A Series of Unfortunate Accessories

Date December 19, 2008

The first real snow of the year, and Alana donned a mish-mash of warmth-ifying accessories, and then decided to clean the snow off my truck.

Surprise for Kids’ Morning — Snow

Date November 17, 2008

So, maybe I am too busy trying to work on figuring out the fabric, pillow sizes and cushion on the new window seat, or maybe it is from trying to figure out Christmas lists, or maybe it is from trying to catch up on having been on a trip to Denver, but in any case, I [...]
