Another weekend of winter backyard fun...

We are certainly making the most of our backyard ice rink. Skating at night is still my favorite time.   Love those lanterns!

Emma's best friend borrowed my skates and the two of them had fun dodging Josie on the ice.

While Chris and I were running errands on Friday, we found these mini hockey nets on clearance at a local home improvement chain. 

 They are perfect size for Miss Josie's wild version of hockey.



Rumor has it another snow storm is headed our way Tuesday.  Giddy up!!

You look so nice! What a fun winter pastime for the family. So glad that the last snow only dropped 6" on us Friday. We're still behind 5" for the winter.

I LOVE your backyard ice rink, and you're going to have so many great memories! I loved skating so much when I was little, and one of my best memories was when our dead-end street iced over, and I skated up and down that thing all night long!

Looks like you guys are having lots of fun this winter! Love the photo os you all in front of the tree house. Heard you are going to be getting more of that white stuff, wonder if it will be a snow day for the girls?!

SO much fun on ice! Who would have thought!
Miss Jose is so adorable in every pose and picture!

Your family all look so warm and cozy playing together! I just can't imagine living in such a cold climate where you could have a backyard ice rink! We all have pools in the desert! I am getting used to living up here in the mountains, though. We had 5 inches of snow at our house last week - I couldn't even go to work! LOL! Blessings!

I love how much fun you are having with that ice rink this winter! Yes, sad to say we are sending another storm your way. We had to dig out this morning.

You guys are having so much fun with that rink. Looks like Chris and Josie are enjoying some wild hockey games. Hopefully you guys are getting some more snow, we are stuck with pouring rain.
