Out in the Snow

We enjoyed making our foam turkeys this weekend. The kids put them on the table to get ready for Thanksgiving. Keith invited one of his single co-workers to come have dinner with us. This is the first year in a long time that I'll be cooking Thanksgiving dinner for us, we've traveled to visit friends or family every year since we've been in Kodiak.

Joshua's cough wasn't as bad today, so I let him come out with us to play. He spent most of his time up in the clubhouse watching the neighbors play on the frozen lake. I told Joshua I didn't think the lake was frozen enough for us to skate on it yet and that he had to wait for a little while longer.
We barely have any snow in the yard, but it is enough to keep the kids happy. Daniel wasn't so sure about the sound of the snow crunching under his feet. After about 15 minutes he warmed up to it and started running around the yard.
Megan enjoyed her sleigh ride. She managed to talk Keith into pulling her all over the yard.



Eeek! Snow! Well, I guess that's too be expected for you. They are calling for it this week here. The kids are estatic. I, on the other hand, not looking forward to it. LOL

We dont get much snow here. We're lucky if it snows once a year.
