A Day to Always Remember...

Yes, I am very excited about snow. Picture this...

Sleeping in the warmth of my bed...

looking at the clock...

seeing it's 8 AM...

not really wanting to be in my PJs all morning, so getting up before Elizabeth (who I share a room with), and getting into some clothes...

heading upstairs to see what one always sees on Christmas morning...

and then, SEEING SNOW! and tons of it outside...

staring out the window, thanking God for answering my prayer for a white Christmas....

opening gifts...

laughing...

enjoying eachother's company...

playing team monopoly (Mike loves that game and will get us to play it anytime he can)...

winning *laugh* (Patricia and I really did win)...

taking a brief naptime...

getting all bundled up to go outside and SLED!...

having a brief snowball fight with Mary while we wait for everyone else...

driving on super icy roads and doing some fancy sliding...

getting to a huge sledding hill and getting a little nervous about going down...

climbing the hill and getting more nervous...

taking one of our sleds and getting ready to go down the hill with Dad...

Mike generously offers to give us a push and I get a bad feeling...

he gives us a horrible push and we go flying down the mountain, spinning BACKWARDS!...

I scream...

several times...

we slide to a stop with snow in our faces and down our necks...

and I want to do it again!...

climb the hill....

go down...

climb the hill...

go down on a double inertube with Mike...

get a record of snow down my neck...

think the blow-up inertube is the best because one doesn't feel the bumps...

go up and down several times...

go down one last time with Patricia...

get in the van...

drive home while trying to get warm...

spend a lovely evening eating and playing games...

That pretty much covers our day yesterday (from my perspective). I put up lots of pictures on the family blog the other day and more are upcoming so here's the link... www.cochranfamily101.blogspot.com Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope you had as wonderful a day yesterday as I had! Praise the Lord for coming so many years ago and giving us a reason for such bountiful joy...
