Hermitting in the Snow

Well, not really IN the snow, but I was looking at it the whole weekend!

We came to the lake this weekend since the boys had a half day Thursday, and no school Friday and Monday.  We had friends join us and had a great weekend.  Relaxing, sledding, gaming, movie watching, talking, entertaining ice sculpting, and oh yes, even some stitching!

Nathan loved the frozen cantaloupe ice bowling, even if he didn't get a strike.

I think I took a picture of every ice sculpture there, but he was still carving them as we were leaving.  I love the expression on the kids faces as they were watching.

More outdoor fun, but too cold and windy for me on Sunday!
 
This is what I like to see, men cleaning in the kitchen! 

Boys watching Star Wars.
 
Reading time with Shana.

And hey, I actually did some stitching this hermitting weekend!  Still not as far as DJ on our One Nation SAL, but it's coming.

What a nice weekend for all. I never heard of Frozen Cantaloupe Bowling! Our boys love Star Wars too. Okay, maybe this mom does too. ;)
