Sledding at the Martins

Today we had the biggest snowstorm we've seen since moving here. Between about 7 am and noon, we accumulated oh, at least 6-8 inches of that fluffy white stuff. After church we were invited to a sledding party at the Martins. This was a new kind of sledding for us; we usually are the down-hill types. This was being pulled on an innertube behind a 4-wheeler (with chains). The Copelands and our ward missionaries were there too. Hehehe, what a great Sunday activity! Kent, Ella and Ethan prepare for take-off. Ella wasn't too sure about the cold snow. Probably also how she couldn't really move with all those warm layers.
Elder Lancaster wipes out.

Emma and Elder Persson on the innertube.

Whee! Away they go!

Hmm, what do you think? Is it cold out? (You must check out Ryan's eyebrows and eyelashes!)

Mommy and Emma, post-trip down the driveway behind the 4-wheeler. I used Emma as a shield for my face, so I didn't get as covered as some people. And Emma stared at me the whole time to protect her face as well. The back of her head was pretty snowy.


Ethan, Elizabeth and Ryan ALL on the 4-wheeler, pulling Elder Persson.

After the sledding, we all went inside where there was hot chocolate and elephant ears, courtesy of the Martins. It was so sweet of them. We had a great time!

I am shivering just looking at Ryan's eyebrows and eyelashes! It looks like a lot of fun though!
