Cookies & Snow

It's not that we aren't doing anything around here, it's just that we aren't doing anything out of the ordinary, and therefore, not very interesting. We had thoughts of going to see Santa or going to a local "Christmas on the Farm" Saturday, but the impending snow and cold temperatures made it easy to stay home. And Colter slept until almost 10:00 that morning (I can honestly say that is a once-in-his-lifetime thing to date), so we were all moving pretty slow. So Saturday became a cookie baking day, and a just hanging out day.

Oh, and a cookie eating day.

Sunday was equally relaxing (excluding Keith doing a bunch of shoveling) and we took some time to play outside in the snow while Elliott slept in his swing. We managed to take a few pictures, and then we set the camera back inside and just had fun.

There was enough of a crust on the snow that Colter could slide down sans sled.

Me, not so much.

We could also give him a good push and he would glide right down our only slightly inclined yard.

And crash into a snow pile and lay like a turtle on his back.

Colter had a really tough time walking in the crusty snow, traipsing out to the middle of the yard only to turn around and wail, "How do I get back?" We cracked up a little bit before we went and rescued him.
