In the morning we headed over to a big sledding hill to try sledding. Since the snow was still falling, the sledding wasn't great yet because the snow was too powdery and not packed down enough so we ventured out in our neighborhood and Chris started shoveling our driveway with Eleanor's help.
We went sledding in our neighbor's backyard.
Later that evening after naps we had the ceremonial burning of our Christmas trees.
Saturday night we watched the Sound of Music and ate popcorn and snow cream in front of the fire.
It stopped snowing that evening, but church was cancelled on Sunday because the roads hadn't been plowed yet. We did more playing in the neighborhood Sunday morning.
Sunday late afternoon we headed back to the sledding hill. it was a little crowded but Eleanor marched up to the top and flew down!
Monday was a snow day for Chris. Chris and Eleanor went out that morning and built a snowman and a fort in the front yard. Some of our friends came over to hang out for awhile because they were a little tired of being snow bound.
From there we headed out one last time to the sledding hill for our last run. Eleanor had a couple wipe outs and a couple near misses but overall did great! The sledding hill was super crowded and super slick on the last day we went.
The daddies and daughters then got in on the sledding action and took a few runs down together. Chris, Jane, and Eleanor had a wipeout on their way down but thankfully no one got hurt.
