A Canadian Winterwonderland

One of the families in our church small group graciously invited us all to their family cottage in the beautiful Muskoka Lakes are of Canada. Let me tell you the snow was so beautiful and peaceful that I did not want to leave. It snowed most of the day on Saturday so every branch and pine needle in the forests were covered with shimmering ice crystals. Our children had so much fun playing with the other kids, tubing down the hill, and hiking through the forest. It was a great opportunity for us to get to know the other families in our group better. I'm so thankful for the time we had and for the great church and small group God has given us.

Snow Fun!

Disclaimer: These pictures were just taken with my cell phone so I am sorry for the pour quality. Better than nothing.

The children were so excited this morning when they awoke to find it snowing. We've been waiting for snow here in Canada for a month now. Of course, Graham still had school today, and I dropped him off in his snow pants and boots. He got to play in the snow during recess two times today. I took the younger two for a walk through the trails in our neighbor, and then we ended up playing at a park. What fun to finally get to enjoy some snow. We always say that if we are going to live in the cold North, we want snow to go with it.

The kids got these sleds for Christmas and they both worked well today. Lidiyanna's sled works perfectly for pulling her around so I will use it when we take the boys to school on snowy days. She really liked riding in it.

Wesley got creative with his sled.
