This Was So Much Fun!!!

When my brothers and I were kids, my dad pulled us around attached to the back of his pick-up...and got in trouble. I think, if I remember correctly, he went around a corner so fast it caused my little brother to slide under a car. Did I imagine that or did it happen?? I can't remember. We literally did this for hours on 2 different days pulling the kids behind a tiny Nissan Versa.

We started off safely--about 5 miles per hour and eventually I got up to 20 mph. There was lots of snow for padding!

I drove the car--because I am the safest driver in the family!

Heather had the best style and I think the most fun. She stayed on the longest even when I tried to throw her off around corners. One time I literally threw her into a snowbank! It reminder me of water skiing and kneeboarding.

Taylor and Heather weathered the frigid temperatures the longest.

We started out with all four of the girls on one sled then they figured out it worked better weight wise with just 2...much faster!

Great memories for Christmas 2008!

Christmas Morning!

We made a last minute decision to travel Christmas Eve because of the weather. Even though the 3 hour trip turned into 7--we're so glad we went. We spent time with my brother and his family and my mom and dad.

Waking up on Christmas morning--I like it that the girls still get excited!


My dad special ordered these for Caley's car and even installed them when he came down about a month ago--thanks, Papa!

Aren't We Glad This is Gone!

We are glad to be done with this weather from December--it's almost painful to re-visit this time period--only because I'm so far behind!

We only lost electricity for 3 hours!

Isn't Peppie cute?

No lights but lots of family fun!
