How We Brought the New Year In

We have not had huge amounts of snow but with the snow on top of previous snow, it makes it appear that we have had a good amount. I suppose we have. I am not one to drive in the snow nor do I like the cold. I am a total summer person. However, Daddy is always quite willing to help the kids out. When Daddy was done with work yesterday, he took the kids out and helped to make a sledding area on the side of our yard. The kids loved it and today with the cold last night and the snow that happened earlier on top of it, it made a great runway. Of course, Daddy also obliged JiaLi and helped her to build a snowman. Jenise was right there with her helping to give the final touches. I tried to get a photo of JiaLi with the snowman but she was not cooperating. I really wish I could break her of the habit of eating the snow. Grrrrr...To be honest the others do it too!! Wanted to wish everyone a very Happy 2008 and many blessings!! BTW, I don't know why but we are always losing hats. If the hat appears to not fit JiaLi--you are right, it does not. She is borrowing Jenise's. I need a better hat/mitten holder.
