Nature's Snowcone

Yes, it's been snowing here in the Great Northwest like CRAZY. My family and I are absolutely loving it and can't get enough. I would love another 8 inches & be snowed in for the rest of the winter would just suit me fine. I can always find tons of things to do, projects to finish or fine tune, cookies to bake, recipes to test, etc etc. Now I love my husband to death but I think I would like him to go to work at least every other day. He's been home since Friday as I have and I am thinking yea, maybe every minute of every day together can't be that great on a long term relationship. We have been together for 23 years and known each other almost 30 but if we were snowed in for an entire winter I don't know who would be the one to walk out of here alive. Ha. Who am I kidding. It would be me. Ha again.

So we have been walking every chance we get and riding our sled with Maddie. My oldest son Justin joined us last night. The sled we have is one that I have had since I was about 10 years old and got it when we lived in Germany. There is no steering mechanism, you just have to learn to use your body to steer. Maddie had become quite good at it and I just use my feet to steer or to halt before careening (sp?)into a ditch.

The picture above reminds me of the snowcones I use to have everyday after school in Hawaii. The snowcone truck would be parked outside after school and I would always get a strawberry lilikoi flavored snowcone for 25 cents. The ones the sell here just aren't the same.
