Busy Weekend Part 1 –Movie & Sledding

We had a very busy, very fun weekend.  We got invited to a special showing of Happy Feet 2 by the real estate agency and mortgage company we used when we bought our house.  The movie is adorable and the kids had a blast. (iPhone)

Then we went sledding after lunch.  This is the first time the kids have gone sledding and they LOVED it.  Our neighborhood has greenbelts between all the houses that have pretty good hills.  It was so convenient to just take a short walk down the block.  My husband and I joined in on a few of the hills and we had a complete blast.  Now Cooper keeps asking when we’re going to the mountains to go sledding.

Cooper helped Charlotte by giving her a push.sledding3_edit_wmsledding2_edit_wmsledding1_edit_wm

Then they learned to paddle with their hands and Cooper figured out very quickly.  Charlotte isn’t quite as strong so it took her much longer.


They tried to carry their sleds back up the hill but they kept falling or letting go of the sled.  It was a lot of up and down for me.

And they insisted on pulling their sleds home.coop_pullsled_edit_wmchar_pullsled_edit_wm

The best thing was they were so exhausted, went right to bed, and slept so well all night!

Stay tuned for the visit to Santa!
