Morning came bright and beautiful. The children ran to the window to make sure that, Yes! The snow is still there! A hearty breakfast and bundling up in layers ensued and then we all piled into the car and made the icy trek out to the farm. Our neighborhood was twinkling with its dress of snow.

Trying to get out of the neighborhood
The roads required lots of concentration but we finally arrived at the Farm. The view took our breath away.
Seems like every time we come out here, we fall a little more in love with this place.
A winter's sky and a winter wonderland
The children are ready to go!
Colin to Annaliese: Let's make Snow Angels!!
The chicks weathered the snow just beautifully. I tried to take a few of them out into the snow, but they told me quite emphatically that they're weren't interested in leaving their warm, little house.
The rest of the animals just wanted me to feed them. They seemed oblivious to the beauty surrounding them.
The babies are getting so big!
Here come the donkeys!
Chores done. Now time for some fun! The hills are steep and big at Sugar Hill which makes for great sledding. Unfortunately we didn't have a sled so we used a few air mattresses. Whatever works! Our neighbors joined us with their sled and their kids.
The snow started to melt and everyone was shivering. Time to head home for lunch and hot cocoa. What a great day!
