All last week, the weathermen were talking snow for Monday. Well, the story changed yesterday. They said it was going to start raining sometime Saturday night and that it should turn to snow by Sunday afternoon. With that forecast in mind, we hit the deck running this morning.
1st order of business was a not-so-quick trip to Target. So with breakfast snack in hand, we headed out the door.
Now, in my opinion, nothing says Sunday like Waffle Sundaes. And nothing says snowday like the smell of fresh gingerbread. My brilliant idea of combining the two ideas and making gingerbread waffles was met with some skepticism by Duke, "You mess up that new waffle iron, you clean it!"
Well, while the gingerbread waffles weren't the delight I was hoping for, I'm happy to say that the forecast was. The morning's freezing rain turned to snow around 11:00, and by 1:00 (about the same time I was finished cleaning the waffle iron) we were in our snow clothes and heading out to work on the sled run.
We trudged through the snow to the golf course.
While Duke & I built the sled run with the snow shovel, Jake developed his own snow-packing method.
Lila caught snowflakes on her tongue.
Then it was time to hit the slope. While Lila & I got set up for the perfect run...
Jake was hatching his evil plan.
He patiently waited with a shovel full of snow for just the right moment.
That's OK. Lila got her revenge!
And that's it. Our Sunday in a nutshell...I mean a snowball. The house is a mess. I haven't done a single load of laundry. I'm completely unprepared for the week. Hopefully tomorrow will be a snowday.
Ta ta for now! Hope your Sunday was at least 1/2 as much fun as ours.
