Life is Like a Box of........


Indeed, in our family, yes, life is like a box of babies.

You never know which one will be flying around the frozen pond all bundled up so tight that they can barely move.

So typical for our family.

My mom and dad's little pond froze last weekend due to the week of non-stop below zero wind chill weather. Steve and I packed up the three stooges for a fun day of ice skating.

The trek in the snow down to the pond begins.

Adie helps assist Mia.

We made it!

Let the fun begin!

(See the bonfire my parent's made across the pond?!)

Meade was so cute sliding into the splits position.

Love it!

My dad then had the brilliant idea to put the little ones in a random box that happened to be down by the pond.
Gracie was a little squished.

She was peering at Grandpa.

Daddy and Gracie pose.

Steve is a pro skater, as he played hockey in high school.
He was able to blaze around the ice holding the girls spinning them all around.
They loved it!

Adie borrowed my hot figure skates for some fun.

Another shot of Gracie skating with Dad.

Grandpa decided to hold Gracie's hood like a leash since she thought it was acceptable to RUN on the ice rather than walk.

Snow Angels!

Super fun!

Mia posing on the perfect hill for sledding, however, we forgot the sled!

We put Mia and Sophie to work and they shoveled away.

Snow ball throw at Mom!

My mom may or may not have had to make a beverage run.
The perfect cooler.

Mommy and Sophie.

And then some more.
Steve was doing my requested "twirl" with me.

Happy Winter Fun to All!
