Sledding?

I took the kids sledding today. Ok, so we didn't really do down any hills or anything, I just pulled them around the block. Ok, not both of them. Elle tumbled out of the sled 3 times in the first two minutes and I ended up carrying her the rest of the way. And I think I broke my elbow as I was picking her up the last time because I heard a popping noise as I was lifting her and now I have a funny tingling in my hand. But otherwise we had fun. Ok, so Joseph whined the whole time after I dropped Elle off at home and took him around the block again. And instead of sitting in the sled laughing and smiling he laid down and pouted*. But otherwise it was fun.

The snow we've gotten here lately is crazy! There are parts of our yard where the drifts are so high that they're taller than Elle. There must be something wrong with me as a mother because I was so tempted to drop her into one of the drifts just to see how cute she would look in her little pink snowsuit, all surrounded by snow. Luckily some little part of me told that's not the sort of thing that good mothers do.

*This was mostly an act because by the time we got home he was giggling quietly and smiling behind his hand. He was powerless against my mad sled pulling skills.

Just for fun, here's a picture that made me laugh and laugh when I first saw it.

All I can say is that I'm amazed you could even get out of the house! Your parts got a ton of snow! I know in my parts, everyone would be freakin' out and thinking it is the end of the world! LOL!
Love the picture, how funny!

Aaahhhh!!!! Poor lemons!!

Now that I have to provide a "witty" comment, I'm left wordless!! I think I'll like your blog and I intend to snoop around a bit. (I would have SO dropped her in the drift. For a photo... yeah, a PHOTO...)

tingly arm = you probably just caught a nerve in your elbow? it happens sometime, but I'm no medical expert so don't neccessarily trust me!

It's a sign that I spend too much time on the boards when I look at that picture and think, "why are those emoticons screaming?" Ha. Poor lemons.
