Now for the bright side. When it is this cold outside a big hot breakfast is in order. Our wonderful mother got up early and made us a delicious breakfast of eggs and pancakes before we went out to go sledding.
Bright side No 2-Sledding. We live on a street that is basically two hills facing each other with houses on either side, making each driveway a mini hill. After using cookie sheets for several years (my brother and I have fond memories of the "USS Cookie Sheet") we purchased four plastic sleds from LL Bean. We spent over an hour going up and down, up and down, up and down till we were freezing, soggy and still having the time of our lives. One of my little sisters kept going "he-haw" just like Sam in "It's a Wonderful Life".
So as the state defrosts, we are enjoying popcorn, hot cocoa and Monopoly marathons.
Stay warm y'all!
