On Monday, Boxing Day, the travelers loaded up and braved our Colville kids mile long snowy driveway for some fun in the snow. It was above freezing and they wanted to get some sledding in before things got too mushy. Baba and Gramps stayed home and had a quiet recuperating day until dinner time.
Uncle Andrew and Uncle Josh used their muscle power to speed up the fun. Daddy was at work this day but he groomed the trails anticipating this fun day.
Addy wanted the snowman to be super big! Olaf the snowman is super big. Great job everyone!
When the fun was over they had a wild ride back to our Country bungalow through all the slush and ice. We enjoyed leftovers for our meal.
These are all Auntie Lolo’s photos and I love this shot of Main Street Colville that she got looking North towards Colville Mountain. The shot of the beautiful sunset is from her phone, too.
One more post coming of our time together celebrating Auntie Katie’s birthday.
BTTP (Back to the Present) It’s snowing again this morning. Our road has been cleared nicely of the snow and ice from the previous storms but the city side streets are still a mess with bumps and ruts and sheets of ice. It made for a very interesting ride to get Dear to Occupational Therapy yesterday. Our Westside kids all are home safe and sound and their snow is not an issue anymore. We had a couple of days of rain and above freezing temperatures that left us with a clear deck but today it is white again. Temps in the 20’s are predicted again for the first week of 2023 so our views will continue to be white for a while longer…
Ami our Amish snowman has fallen. The combination from the weight of the fresh snow that fell and then the rain and warmer days was too much for him. His nose is broken but he’s still smiling. We do love his attitude.
We have very icy conditions with the snow melt during the day and then freezing overnight. If I was 12 and had Ice Skates I’d give ice skating a try!
Here was the view on our way to church on Sunday morning.
Besides putting away the Christmas decor until next year things have been slow and lazy around here. There has been some puzzle progress. How are things in your neck of the woods?
…all that will be left are the wonderful memories and maybe a little indigestion.
…hope you have time to relax on the last weekend before Christmas! Blessings…
I’m headed out to meet my NW walking buddies for our 6 mile walk in the rain!
Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.
