We LOVE sledding...sliding...snow fun...cold!!!

The kids absolutely LOVE sledding! They love getting all bundled up and the giggles and laughter...okay and sometimes frustration (when they have to walk all the way back up the hill over & over & over!!) We had so much fun out with the kids...well, Tim had so much fun & I had fun watching & taking pictures of course...I haven't invested in boots & snowpants yet. :-) I just help Amara get up the hill! :-) I was laughing so hard over this little Amara girl....she is one tough cookie & LOVES sliding. She is hilarious. She has the biggest smile on her face as she goes down the hill...well, take a look for yourself!!!

They got warmed up on the smaller hill...then headed over to the bigger hill...

Noah made a few small jumps...

Tim thought he should go down the bigger hill with Amara first...

But...he was a little too big to go down with her...so they started to tip...look at her face! She's laughing!!!

Doggy-pile on daddy!!!

Now what should I do???

So, Amara is going alone...

And taking her own spill...she loves it!

And this is the best...you can see the idea unfolding...and I happened to catch every pre-meditated minute of it!!! :-)

I can't believe she actually had this in mind. She's a fighter! :-) Throwing snow in her big brother's face???
Photobucket

Maybe having a moment of regret? :-) Doubt it. She got him good!!!

Looks like so much fun, Staci- Tim's smile is just as big as the kiddos! :)

These pictures are great (and snow pics are so hard to take!) Nice work! I love seeing Amara out there like such a big girl!
Also- can you email me when you get a second and let me know how to post larger pics in blogger? I can't figure it out :) Thanks!
Happy New Year!
