I See The Moon

All day Tuesday, it looked like a snow globe outside, so when I picked up the boys at the sitter, all Luke could talk about was going sledding at "Big Hill." Big Hill is not really so big, but it's just a few houses down and to Luke, it's big. Shane had a meeting after school and didn't arrive home until it was dark, but how could we crush those dreams of sledding?

After dinner, we bundled up and ventured outside.
Tommy was captivated by the moon and said, "Muh...muh...mooooon" over and over.

So big, that moon. And so big, that baby of mine.

Luke was so fast on his sled that all I could capture with my phone was a blur.


Luke and I made a heart in the snow, and then we went outside and found our way to a hot bath and comfy pajamas. I don't really like the snow, but that night with the world quiet all around us, except for giggles and softly falling snowflakes? I could go for more nights like this.

I love night sledding. When my hubby and I were at IU together we would sled at night. Even now one of my favorite winter activities is shoveling the drive at night because it's so quiet and peaceful.
