This time it wasn’t a few flurries – we actually got some inches to stick on the ground. Of course, I had just cleaned out the garage and got rid of the sleds (truth be told, what we had was a toddler sled that the kids had long outgrown). So when JJ was able to shut down a little early, I asked him to get us some sleds. His response – two plastic buckets/pans from Home Depot.

Thank goodness we have a steep driveway and icy snow because I’m not sure the pans alone would have done the job – but they did work and by the expression on Connor’s face – they worked well, I’m not sure he even knew it wasn’t a sled – well until he got to try out some real sleds at the Byerly’s.

Sideways snow!??!
