Sledding & Things

On the way home this evening I looked over and there in the dark were some kids sledding down their hill.
It quickly took me back many many years ago when there was only Momma, Me & Josh.
I can remember how excited we were before bed and the thought of a big snow.
Barely able to sleep, but Momma still making us go in case of school.
Then late that night I remember Momma waking us up to see how much it had snowed.
She said, get dressed and get your jackets on.
She went and got our sled and let us play in the snow, and go sledding in the dark!!
It was so much fun.  It is one of my favorite memories of being little.
We did that several times growing up.
The first year DH and I were dating, he was down for a visit.
We got a big snow, and about 11 Momma called, asking if we wanted Dad to come get us to go sledding. 
I think DH thought we were crazy.
He had a blast of course.
Thank You Momma for the best memories ever!!

Today being "Thankful Thursday" I am "Thankful" for
the snow falling, giving that warm fuzzy feeling
a doggie who loves to see me come in the door, and tonight couldn't wait to get in the snow
the sight of children playing in the snow with their parents
a hubby willing to drive me in this mess!
Peppermint Hot Chocolate! Mmmmmm

Oh how fun! We used to love to sled when we were younger, of course. I haven't taken my kids yet this winter :(

Such a lovely tribute to your precious mother.
