Breaking in New Snow Shovels

Yesterday when I shopped I picked up some new snow shovels. We got some fresh snow overnight and it’s snowing now, so Luke and Jacob have already put the shovels to good use today.

We went to Pioneer Hill after lunch so the kids could enjoy some snowboarding and sledding.

Snowy Friday

The snow fell steadily as I walked this morning. Nick, Zack and Josiah were anxious to get out and have fun in the snow.

Christmas Lights

We like to go for a drive to enjoy the Christmas lights this time of year. Last evening we drove to Traverse City, enjoyed some pizza, did a little shopping and then drove around town to see the lights. Thankfully the weather was good and the roads were clear and dry. Last year the weather was a little rough on our drive home.
