Snow Fun

We had our grandchildren over last week during their Christmas break and had some fun in the snow.  The boys came for a night except little Lucas who spent the night with another set of grandparents.

The girls came later in the week but it was a lot colder out so we could not spend quite as long outside as we did earlier in the week.

I had my snowpants on too!

 This is hubby.  Grandpa is very careful towing the kids around the yard.  Putts along and watches over his shoulder all the while.  Unfortunately this type of snow fun is at a conclusion this year because hubby went out with the big boys Saturday afternoon and had an accident.  Does not know what he hit on the trail but it threw him about 20 feet per younger brother.  He was out cold for a couple of minutes and has a broken collar bone.  Says it is the first bone he has ever broken and it is a bad one.  Cannot get into the orthopedic surgeon until later in the week.  They have looked at the xrays and think there might have to be some surgery.  So I am waiting on the man like he has never been waited on by me before.  And I had to carry all the Christmas decor down to the basement storage myself.  Grumble, grumble I am sure this must have been planned.  Hope everyones new year has started out with a bang.  Just not quite as big of bang as ours!  Thanks for stopping in!

Oh my stars ( another pre-k saying!) I cannot believe that hubby broke his collar bone! I hope that he is a good hubby can be demanding! I will say a prayer for him and for you. Looks like we might get some of the white stuff on Thursday! Some of my pre-ker's have never seen more than an inch of snow! Hope we get some just for them, snow is such a special thing for children.

boys and their toys...they just won't play with safe things like knitting, dolls and cameras, will they? LOL.

seriously glad he'll be okay and hope he feels all better sooner than expected.
