Let In Snow!!! (Except Where Are the Snow Plows?)

Jake got an early Christmas present this morning... school being cancelled for today and tomorrow! He was as giddy as a school boy when he learned that he didn't have to go to work! It would have been better though if he hadn't gotten his car stuck in the driveway and had to help shovel the whole driveway this morning with Brad, Carlee, Tyler, and myself. The kids came outside too and had an absolute blast! (I think Jake and Brad were having a little too much fun too!)

This is Brad pulling Emmett up the snow in the driveway before we had everything cleared.

Brad sat on the sled while Jake pulled him down the driveway. At the bottom of our driveway is a steep slope. The guys had a fun time going down the bottom of the slope into a snow embankment.

This is Jake smiling and having sweet dreams of not shoveling snow for the next 6 weeks because of his leg surgery on Thursday. The stinker did that on purpose! I am positive of it!

Nathan liked the snow for about 10 minutes. Then he decided it was too cold and went back in the house by himself to play with his trains. (Notice Ellie and Addie in the background. They were trying to throw snowballs at Brad and Jake!)

Nathan wanted to help clear the snow so he picked up a plastic child's hoe and tried to push the snow around.

Ellie thought she was on top of the world. At least in this picture she was 3 feet taller than Jake when she stood on the snow mound.

Ellie and Addie are best buddies. They were so excited to play with each other in the snow!

Ok - so even with all of the playing Brad and Jake did get the driveway cleared. No sign of the snow plows that are supposed to clear the driveway for us! Jake and Brad kept calling themselves the "Sweaty Dudes" and are offering classes for a physical workout in our driveway each time it snows. They thought it was a pretty good take off of "Sweaty Chix Fitness" that Carlee and I like to go to!

Look what we are missing! Sounds like you younger folk are having a good bit of exercise and fun with the new fallen snow. When I see that much in Springville I wonder what it must be like in Woodland Hills. Looks like the kids are having fun.
