Photo a Day; Days 8 & 9

Sorry, haven't yet gotten around to finishing the girls tree decorating story.  Been in a bit of a funk worrying about some things I can't really control.  Nothing drastic, just inconveniences really, but they are annoying me.

Oh well, c'est la vie!

I'm gonna cheat a little bit today for the pictures, as I am using pics I took today for both today's photo prompt (Out & About), as well as yesterday's (Someone you Love). 

We had an ice storm come through in the early hours of the morning today, which caused the schools to be delayed 2 hours.  Can't say I mind that at all... love being able to go back to bed for a bit!  We ended up with a layer of ice over everything about 1/4 of an inch thick.  Thankfully the road crews worked really hard and the roads were pretty clear for Donnie to get to work and the boys to get to school.

Once the boys got home from school and did their homework they raced outside to play with their friends.  They quickly discovered that their sleds worked really well on the icy slope.  They had a blast sliding down the hill over and over again! :-)

Sledding looks so fun! What an awesome use for an ice storm!

I love that the kids are so creative! I never would have thought to use the ice covered grass to go sledding on, but they did! Of course now they cannot wait for the first real snow to arrive! :-)
