Sledding at Night, Part 2

My husband is truly an overgrown child. He took Comet outside to go potty this evening and came running back in, telling the kids to get dressed, get their boots, get their gloves, get their snowpants... and hurry!

So, Avery didn't have to wait 'til morning to try out her new sled after all...

They had an absolute blast sledding down the hill in our backyard... in the dark. Avery was howling with laughter as her saucer sled twirled her around in the circles the whole way down the hill. Nick had to literally tackle Avery and her saucer when they got to the bottom, to prevent them from continuing across the alley and into the yard of the house behind us (she took off once, in Damon's sled, before Daddy was ready... and she did, in fact, visit our neighbor's yard). When Avery got stopped, each and every time, she'd jump up screaming, "Dad! That was SWEET! That was soooo sweet, Daddy!"

She is such a maniac.

I only wish my family would decide to have this much fun during the day, when the sun is shining, so that I could manage to get some GOOD pics. Don't they know they aren't supposed to have fun when the lighting isn't optimal for picture-taking?? They must've missed that memo...

I am sooooo envious of your snow! That is what I wish for every winter and every winter I don't get it! Love the pics!

If I bring cocoa, can I come over and play in the snow too? It's not that there isn't plenty of snow in Ohio, WV snow looks much more fun!
