I have been a bit absent this past week...no posts since last Monday?
Wow, where did that time go?
Well, it has been a fun week here. Last Sunday my husband and I went out onto the
Ural River...and walked on water! It was a little strange and a bit eery to be walking on a river.
You could see the thickness of the ice right through the top layer.
These were some cool bubble looking patches:
Here is one of the holes left by an ice fisherman. It amazes me how in this cold they can just sit there and fish!
Then, came the snow! My kids were so happy when they woke up Monday morning to a few inches of snow on the ground, and more flurries falling. Overall, my opinion is that we got about 6 inches...it seems like a lot! The kids have been ice skating and building snow forts. They have tried sledding down their little snow mounds...
such fun for them who have never really lived in snow.
Here are a couple shots of the falling flakes and Bella enjoying the snow:
and of course, last but certainly not least...
PITTSBURGH STEELERS ARE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL!
They just finished off their season with a home field win against the NY Jets.
Congratulations Steelers, and now:
Stairway to Seven!
