Yes, the children are playing in a vacant lot, on great piles of fill dirt. America can stop building playgrounds now.
The next day, we drove back to Indiana, where it is also quite white:
Remember our girls only snow day a couple of years ago, when Matt couldn't bring himself to skip a day of work to stay home and play with us? Well, that's moot this week, because his office is CLOSED!!! We can make him play with us all we want!
This is good, because sometimes I flip over my sled and need to lie down for a while:
|No, I'm not wearing a coat. I bought some silk long johns, and holy cow are they warm!|
It's easy when you've made yourselves a ski jump!
Tonight, all warm inside and tired out from sledding, we've got a Monopoly game going, dyed ice blocks freezing outside on the porch, and Weezer playing on the stereo. Syd's giving Wild Pony a bath, and I think I'm going to watch the Doctor Who Christmas special a second time, while eating a doughnut.
Oh, and it's snowing again.
