Rain, rain, go away! Please!

That might sound like an odd way of starting a post about all the snow we have had this week, but as I sit writing this (3:30pm Thursday), it is raining outside.  Our snow has been reduced by 1/2, if not 2/3 and I am just sad.  It has been raining all day up here on the Palouse so far.  It seems rather cruel to give us all this beautiful white, fluffy snow and then kill it with rain.

Anyway, the rest of this post will be about snow and the fun we had while it was here.  Below are pictures from Monday and Wednesday of this week.

Not a lot of snow on Monday, but the kids thought it was enough to sled with.  They were right.

Luken would not let me take his picture until he pulled the sled over himself.

These are now from Wednesday.  This one just shows how the wind moves our snow around.

Luken loves sledding this year.  Wasn't so fond of it last year.

You really cannot see it, but she is zipping past me on her sled.

With Makayla, you can see a bit of the snow being thrown up.

This is an idea of the distance we trudge up to sled.

Luken gets a ride up the hill.  It is a whole lot easier than carrying.

Finally, one picture of the kids and mom.
