Sledding

 The snow hit hard here right before Thanksgiving, the temperatures were below 20 degrees so we waited a few days before going out and playing in it. Poor Colt, I had not gotten him any snow clothes yet this year but luckily Kenzie had extras, his hands were freezing though.
 Dave leashed up the dogs to the sled and had the dogs pull the kids down the hill by Dave's parents house. Kenzie and I both thought it was a ridiculous idea but it ended up working out really well. Colt and Cam LOVED it!

 Here they come!!
 I think Sam did most of the pulling and Lakota just ran along beside him.
 I am pretty sure the kids would have stayed outside all day if we would have let them (well at least Cam would have, Colt's hands were really cold).

 Aunt Dee Dee took Jax on a ride by himself.
 He smiled the whole way down and waved at everyone around him.
 Auntie Dee Dee and Jax.
 Andy got a little more than he bargained for when he said to Randee at the top of the hill " Give me a push then hop on and we can sled down together" without knowing it Dave pushed Randee to the side and gave Andy a push and hopped on. Andy's response "Hey your not Randee!". They got a good laugh out of this.
We walked over to a park to check out the sledding but it was not nearly as good as the hill so the kids played on the playground for a bit then we walked back. Colt was so cold by this point so Andy put him on his shoulder and gave him a ride home. We got home and warmed up with hot chocolate then had pizza for lunch. A great end to an amazing long Thanksgiving weekend!
