Down the Mountain

 We waited and waited for the first snow of the winter.

 On January 9, we finally got an inch or two of the fluffy stuff so we bundled ourselves, mixed a batch of hot cocoa, loaded the new sleds Santa brought for Christmas and headed to our favorite sledding hill.

 For the dare devil Julietta it must have looked more like a sledding mountain!

 "1, 2, 3 . . . "

 and they're off!

 Down the mountain they go!

 And then back up for more fun!

 The fourth child - which in Greek means spoiled little snow angel! {grin}


 Jack managed to avoid the camera for the most part - he separated from the rest of us and had a fun time by himself. He even set a new Helms family distance record!

 Liliana tired of the traditional way of sledding and decided to snowboard.

 Serious sleddy snowboarders use their tongue.
