First Winter Snow '08

Tuesday, December 2, 2008

We had our first official winter snow for 2008 this past Sunday. The kids were freaking out when they woke up and had a new view from their bedroom windows. I think Nathan was just as excited. The pictures were taken around 10:00 AM.....so everyone was dresses and ready to go pretty early. Since we have the privelage of living on the windy prarie...we don't have the best hills for our sleds. Nathan pulls the kids around by a 4 wheeler on an old hog feeder lid. The girls had a great time. Clay told me he cried when he had to ride on the make-shift sled, so he helped drive.
Off thru the field....

and off thru the yard......

out by the bins.....

and around the evergreen trees.....

Happy Thanksgiving:)

We had a great Thanksgiving this year. Everyone is healthy and safe, and Nathan finished harvest the weekend of the 23rd...so YEAH!!!! We had my family over for lunch, and then went to Nathan's brothers home for supper. Here's RyLee building a domino tower with a toothpick in her mouth.

My Grandpa Stout deep in conversation...Grandma was building too.
