Snow day Shreddin'!!

12 inches of new snow + no school + hyper children = a backyard full of gnarly shred heads!!
snowday1


In one totally trippendicular move, J-boy collides with the very sickly apple tree.
Between the deer and the children, I'm afraid that this poor apple tree will never experience it's full potential.
In fact, I think it's time to say our goodbyes now.

Can you spy the backseat driver?

Yep, these two are a dangerous duo.

Speaking of dangerous... my photo taking abilities in snow.
Null.and.void.

Here's the "Mac Daddy" tearing up our hill.
snowday7


He pretty much rocks I tell ya.
He's out there, in the balmy 10 degree air, having a grand old time.
Yes, I happen to be standing on our back deck.
It was necessary for me to stay inside and "tend the fire" and prepare the hot chocolate.
Only so that the children would be toasty warm upon re-entry.

This little peanut refuses to be left behind.
Have I mentioned he's 2 going on 8!!
Phrases like "That's Awesoooome", "Suh-weet" and  "Oh Yeah, Baby" are some of his favorites.
His kindly, and not overly cautious father even allowed him to try S-girl's snowboard at one point.
I cringed and covered my eyes.
He's getting way too big for his britches.

And look who else is getting way to big for her britches!
Make it stop...please!!

so much fun!! I'm in Alabama right now and am counting down the minutes until I am home in the Northwest. Save me some snow!

Leanne said...

Those trees in the backyard just take my breath away ... another sign that I must move in ;).

And the SNOW!!! Oh, the snow. We sure had our share this winter, but something about it looks so much prettier and fun from your views. Here, not so pretty or fun (ok - well - maybe a 'little' fun.)

Your photos inspire me regularly, my friend. So so glad to know you.

Silver Strands said...

snow days = best childhood memories ever!

Courtney said...

Looks like fun - from inside. ;) I can't believe how big your pup is already!

Eileen said...

Lyle is so jealous. He skied every winter weekend from about age 5-18. Our snow out here is way too wet. It's fine by me though because lift tickets are not in our budget after having just bought SIX tickets to China and SEVEN tickets back home from China!

Tara said...

Looks like you had a fun day!! Yay for sledding ...great photos. Your pup is too cute!

Sassy said...

Love those pictures. Looks like the kids had so much fun. And that puppy! OMG She is gorgeous. :)

Happy Monday!

Tiffany said...

Now that is an amazing day! Who cares about photo quality - just look at those smiles!

Liz said...

Hi Dixie! Why are you stuck inside?

I LOVED the Dynamic Duo photo! I bet he loves being out there with the big kids!

Lula Lola said...

This looks like so much fun! I bet your kids are loving it! And that pup of yours, precious!
So funny that you're still getting snow. It's plum spring-y here. It's been in the upper 70s all weekend.

Seizing My Day said...

Oh Yay... a Dixie chick pic... (sorry... that just came out!) She is Sooooooo Cute!!

WOW ...you have a totally rad hill dude... *what is wrong with me today?* Great Winter fun pics!!

Do you all ski/snow board on the mountains? we don't. =) Hubs used to... but well... life changed ..long story...not for comments! ha

Your kids are brave...!! Mine are exactly the opposite... and opposite of me as a child... (wimpy... when it comes to outdoor stuff!... how did that happen? I was such a tom boy!!)

one day when we meet... Antique shopping it IS!! no buying... just looking!! ha ha!!

Love the photos! L-Boy is so adorable in his toque and helmet! How wonderful to have that hill right by your house. I'm with you, I would be inside making the hot chocolate too!

Speaking of chocolate, that little-big puppy of yours is adorable!

Melissa said...

I;ve been waiting for an update on your new little girl, I am in love with her ya know!
What fun pictures Julie! Have a great week!

Jenilee said...

12 inches of new snow! crazy! looks like they all enjoy it though! :)

Amy said...

Looks like so much fun! I laughed when I read that you were on the deck. That's so where I would be.

He & Me + 3 said...

Now that is when snow is fun! Love the picture of the baby and the puppy...both growing up way too fast.

Stacey said...

What a great back yard! It makes me a little jealous. Our two feet of back yard isn't nearly that entertaining. They look like they had a blast!

Love Letters To China said...

How crazy is it that you had another dumping of snow and we had 80 plus degree weather? Looks like your family doesn't mind it one bit. Loads of fun! Your puppy is way too cute. Don't tell my family I said that. They are haunting me to get one and I won't budge. I just can't imagine yet another mouth to feed and take care of.... ;-)

Heidi said...

he-he...
Heidi & Jack.

Hannah said...

So fun! I think your J-Boy and the Monkey would be fast friends. My husband is WAY less cautious than I am, it drives me crazy!

Tina Michelle said...

Claudia said...

wow - such a lot of snow...over here in germany there's not much snow left and spring is in the air...sigh..

Sonora said...

Yeah, that little tree doesn't look like it stands a chance. I want your backyard! It looks like so much fun and I think the pictures in the snow are wonderful.

Laura@Cowboy Boots said...

hello that's a lot of snow!!!!! makes me cold just looking it.

looks like tons of fun at the same time!

Laura said...

Suh-weet dude!! :) Love the pictures, looks like lots of fun. And you're such a thoughtful Mama staying behind and tending to the hot cocoa. :)

The Iowa Farmer's Wife said...

What a fun time!!! Great pics! Thanks for all your sweet comments. You should definitely try the chickpea salad though, it really is yummy.

Joey @ Big Teeth and Clouds said...

It looks like fun, but I'm ready to put that kind of fun away for a while! I'm with the adorable doggie on that.

Karen Whittal said...

What beautiful photo's wish I was there i am melting in the heat.

Nicole said...

Looks like a lot of fun! And hey, the fire and hot chocolate is very important. They understand. ;) Your little man looks adorable and happy too. Thanks for stopping by today!

Mommy Words said...

Those pics are amazing and it is so crazy to see them because our spring flowers are blooming. What my kids wouldn't give for snow like that!

Arizona Mamma said...

Just looking at the snow pictures makes me COLD! It's in the 80's here, which is sad actually. It just means that too soon it will be too hot to breathe.

I love how you say L boy is 2 going on 8! I know another one of those ;)

Your dog....could NOT be cuter.

Rachel said...

Gah - I've been cooped in the house with two sick males for 4 days... I would much rather have enjoyed the snow with y'all! :)

S.I.F. said...

So much fun! But... I fear you might be right about that poor apple tree!

Seizing My Day said...

Blomgrens said...

Julie! I'm so glad we are connected :) I would love to see your other blog, you can email me at kelly(dot)blomgren@gmail(dot)com. LOVED the video of you meeting S and have to admit, I cried :) So fun. Can't wait to get to know you better.

Katharine said...

Just popping in to say hi! I haven't seen you around, so I figured life got busy... Hope all your snow has melted!!

Stew Fam said...

Finally had a few minutes to stop by and see your blog...love it! My fav was the 4 kids at Costco, too funny!!! It'll be nice to see you guys again soon:)

He & Me + 3 said...

Seriously, your dog could totally model. Gorgeous. Love the dynamic duo too. They are so cute.

Carissa said...

That looks like fun!

Hannah said...

Hello!! I am going to start stalking you! I need a little bit off a crazy town fix! Miss your posts :)

Leanne said...

Hey . . . was thinking of U today, and the little ones (who are probably BIG now!), and the puppy, and your cool pictures. Katie has a friend who was adopted from China, and she was asking questions about how she found her parents. I showed her your video of S-Girl, and Katie said, "Mommy . . . that's so beautiful . . ." How are U?

Manda said...

I miss you... Hope you are well!!!
Hugs and Blessing...

Dana said...
