The kids and Dad tried out sledding in the church parking lot near our home.
They moved on to sledding down the church stairs.
Sledding was fun on our street in front of our house (with parents at the top and bottom of the hill watching for non-existent cars).
There was also much shoveling done of our driveway and then on to the neighbors to earn summer camp money.
Then Goldilocks was having so much fun shoveling snow, she cleared the entire street in front of our home. The DOT man came by with his plow and thanked her for a job well done. Oh, if I could only bottle that girl's energy!!
Of course, we had to make a snowman and roll giant balls of snow into a snow fort, which led to an epic snowball fight! I am sure I lost...considering how much snow went down my neck!
There were hours indoors this week...calm, craft-filled hours. We decorated our storm door with hearts.
We enjoyed doing a fun pastel chalk Valentine tree tutorial from Hodgepodge.
Tom Sawyer made us a lovely dinner one night. He loves to cook and arrange the food on platters.
We enjoyed a box of Valentine candy...
And there were many hours of rubber band jewelry making.
We also enjoyed hours of watching the birds fight over the feeders, playing Wii fit and doing the 3R's. Our city came to a standstill for a few days, so dance and doctor appointments were cancelled this week.
We watched many movies this week.
