What a beautiful, snowy day we are having! It looks like the dog has finally crashed from his chocolate high. He found a bag of chocolates I had up in my bedroom where he is not allowed but decided to snoop while we were at church. He was smart enough to leave the foil wrappers all over our bedroom floor. I'm not sure how he managed that, but he's a pretty smart dog. He can follow commands like, "Go lay with William" without any training. Maybe we should be working with him more. Max turned two at the end of November. He has come a very long way since he came to live with us, but he is still very high strung. The chocolate seemed to make him even more hyper. The snow today was great for wearing him out a bit, but he came in covered with "ice burrs," as Eliana called them.
We got an amazing amount of snow today! It was a lot of fun for the kids to play in. William made a snow fort. Eliana likes to shovel paths and crawl around in the snow. It's about time to shovel now for the third and hopefully last time. Darren shoveled enough for us to get out of the driveway this morning, but it didn't really matter. The Outback did great in the snow. It didn't even hesitate at the snow plow pile at the end of the driveway when we got home from church.
It's such a fun and festive time of year. Coming off of Thanksgiving with so much to be thankful for and heading into Christmas. We are still homeschooling full force. We have a concert at the nursing home on Tuesday and we went roller skating the homeschool group last Friday. Look for more fun pictures in the photo album.
