Sledding Fun!

Scott and Ava went sledding behind our house tonight. I only have pictures and wet clothes as evidence. I "had" to stay home to keep the baby warm!
Check out the icicles hanging from the swingset!

Snow Ice-Cream

It has been a beautiful snowy day... perfect for making snow ice-cream!
Nash and Nora walked over to join the fun.
Paula Deen's recipe is a good one!
16 cups (very clean, collected) snow
1 can Eagle Brand
1 T vanilla
It's especially good with chocolate chips and plenty of sprinkles!
...beautiful Nora...

Trip to the Park

We took the girls to the park today.
The weather was chilly but perfect for running off energy!
...Jane LOVES to swing...
...Ava LOVES to slide...

Jane prefers walking these days over being held or being in the stroller.
Little Miss Independence...but oh so cute!
Scott and Ava climbed down the rocks under the bridge to explore and check things out.
Fun Fun Fun!

Benda What? Benda Who?

Ava got a set of Bendaroos for Christmas....they are a great invention! She LOVES creating all kinds of treasures! I love them because she can use them over and over again and they keep their stickiness...very cool!
...Proud Ava...

New Pizzeria

Last weekend we enjoyed Fratelli's for dinner. It was delicious pizza. We tried the Margherita and The Three Little Pigs (ham/bacon/sausage). It was nice to be downtown in our hometown for a fun meal!
...Jane & Pappy...
