Who says winter sports have to be expensive? The kids had great fun on their snowboards that we found at the dump. :) OK, Josiah's didn't work so well, but Sam's was nice and fast!
And our old runner sleds work beautifully on this kind of snow!
Julia is SO much braver than she has been any other winter.

Of course, the best thing to do after playing outside is come in for hot chocolate!
Something else funny happened yesterday. Julia lost another tooth! This one was one of the ones that was capped after her accident a couple years ago. It always looked a little funny because it was whiter than the others (because of the cap). It's been getting loose lately, and yesterday she mentioned that it was a lot looser. She said, "I think if I eat a Hershey's, it might make my tooth come out!" Sure enough . . . she bit into the chocolate, pushed up with her tongue against the chocolate (which was against her tooth), and it popped right out! She had quite the surprised look on her face when she realized it worked. :)
Chocolate in one hand, tooth in the other:
