Christmas Vacation

Christmas vacation turned out to be looooong.....I forgot what it was like to have Ella home all day, everyday for 2 weeks. Between her and Olivia, they wore me down!

Thankfully we were lucky to have Ella's cousin Jack over for a day to play. I could see after only an hour or two that staying in the house all day was not going to be an option. I thought they would keep each other company but it was more like they came to me and said they were bored! What?! Go play with all the toys downstairs you silly children!

My sister in law Crystal must have known better, having 3 children of her own, she brought over Jack's snow gear thinking we might play outside. That we did! I sent Olivia up to my Mom's and camera in we went to the hill up the street.

Besides Ella barely making it up the hill with the sled at times, it was actually more fun than I expected since I am not a snowy winter kind of gal! Jack and Ella teamed up to get the sleds up the hill. Jack was at the top and Ella would push the sled as high as she could until Jack could grab it and pull it up. At that point, Ella only had to worry about getting herself up the hill! Clever little people I tell ya, and great teamwork!
