Desperate Days Call for Desperate Measures

On a day when I had my children shovel 6 inches of snow off of our entire driveway...
(1 hour of energy burned)
and took them sledding on an enormous hill
the closest thing to a ski slope we have here in town....
(2 additional hours of energy burned)
And on a day when my boy is still bouncing around like silly putty at bedtime,
The couch becomes a landing pad for his crazy football-catching stunts.
No, I don't let him (or anyone) jump on the couch, not usually, (uh-uh!)
but since today,
we are on Snow Day #10...
daddy is out of town...
and momma desperately needs her boy to get a good night's sleep....
The couch will be ok.
(another hour of energy is burned.)
Good night!!!

I'm a little jealous of the snow. A little. I cannot imagine day ten. CRAZY!!! Here in south Louisiana we shut down life for freezing rain.

The snow looks so beautiful! Memories being made. I have memories of living in West Virginia for a brief period when I was five. We would slide down snow covered hills on cardboard.

Hope you're hanging onto your sanity. :)

Where, oh where do they get that energy?? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those action shots on the couch (totally worth letting them abuse the couch a little!!)!

The couch will survive and now hopefully momma will too. School today?

LOVE those last few captures.
