Snowy weekend

We got our first official blast of winter over the weekend. This is a pic I took on our back patio yesterday afternoon. The accumulation in now over 8 inches. The kids have been outside non stop and are outside as I type this building snow forts and planning their attacks for the huge snowball fight. Eddie took them sledding last night to try out the new sleds Grandma Pat got them for Christmas. The official word was they worked great but need to be waxed to get maximum speed.

Not much on tap for today. I am taking Connor to his friend's birthday party at an indoor pool this afternoon. Go figure, snowballs in the morning, swimming in the afternoon. Should make for one tired little boy.

Huge football game on today. I am confident my NY Giants will kick butt! I am taping the game to watch later. Yes, I am obsessed.

Wanted to share a layout with you. I made this for the December Scenic Route monthly challenge and I am happy to say it was picked as one of this months winners! Whoo Hoo! Have a great Sunday and go GIANTS!
