Edited to add: This is my finished product:
On an entirely different note, my mom came up for her annual come-to-the-tundra-for-fun trip. We had a blast as always. We had plenty of snow, as a matter of fact it snowed every day she was here practically so here's what we did on a couple days we were somewhat active:
This is where we ended up after running up and down the hill with our sleds...ON the snow flat on our backs - as I posted these pictures I realized my husband is right, I am my mother's "mini me", we are scooting down the hill below in the same fashion : }
Then in honor of the 2010 Olympics we went to the front yard for some fun:
Our downhill skier - of course took the gold
And we had the Roaming Shores Bobsled team also taking top honors:
The front yard now looks like a pitiful Olympian graveyard (or morgue) due to the sun this past weekend...we won't even go into the snow we have gotten since, we cannot even leave the house through the front door, the drifts are too high! So now we have a snow covered headless skier and shrunken bobsled team.
Thanks mom - winter would never be the same without you XOX. Missing my mom...........................................at the Shores
