Another snow day

So, we were home again, with very little snow, but a lot of ice, enough to keep schools closed (well our neighborhood school was open part of the day - but in the district where I work it was closed, so the kids were home today). We are expecting another storm tomorrow, so we are home tomorrow again - I am wishing that the kids's daycare/preschool would stay open during snow days, I'm exhausted and they are ready to go back to their routine - or at least I'm ready for that! More than likely we'll be home all week and they'll head back next week for a couple days, then it's Christmas!
So, we took a walk to the Sellwood park today, with the double stroller and the sled. It was interesting pushing this stroller on icy sidewalks! I actually couldn't push it up a driveway into the park, b/c it was so icy, I kept sliding backwards, luckily there weren't any cars there! It was so funny, but a bit scary too - Jakob and Sarah were laughing as their stroller would go up the driveway and back down. I was hanging onto it for dear life. I would pay money to see that on video! Anyhow here are some pictures of the kids in the snow - Sarah's first pic in the snow and her first sledding trip. Oh, and Sarah is wearing 3 pairs of pants and 4 tops - she doesn't have a snow suit - so she isn't really that stout looking - she's chunky but not that chunky!! (Sarah will be 11 months tomorrow!)

Here is a frozen rainchain that we saw on the way to the park

You are such a good momma Jess, packing them all up and heading for sledding. Remember sledding down those hills in Spokane? So fun.

I do love sledding and I do remember sledding in Spokane! I just can't stay inside with the kids all day, Jakob would like to stay in, but Sarah gets really bored. So, off we go - rain, sleet or snow. We'll tomorrow it really is going to sleet - so we probably won't go out then!
