We have had quite a weekend so far.
We had volleyball on Saturday morning
and then came home to play in the snow.
Want to know how much snow we have?
We have THIS MUCH snow!
What do you do when you can barely make it up 
What do you see there?
How about a SLIDE?
Do you see a SLIDE?
Someone sure did!
After almost THREE HOURS of snow fun
they were ready to abandon their sled.
That gives you a better idea of the drift
in our backyard next to the house.
What tastes good after a cold snowy day?
even if it IS Saturday night.
Eyes Closed Or Open
they sure taste good.
After Sundaes it is time for the 
If you have never played this you MUST try it.
Everyone lays down and puts their head 
on someone else's stomach.
Then the first person starts with HA..
The next person says HA HA.
The third person says HA HA HA.
The fourth person says HA HA HA HA.
This continues and keeps going around.
The first person to start laughing uncontrollably is OUT.
As you can see above,
MyHero IS NOT a winner!
He is OUT.
The line re-forms and continues until there
is only one person left.
If you play try to lay next to
a person with a nice big tummy.
It makes a GREAT pillow.
Oh-isn't that sweet?
MyHero is working on making
his "pillow" bigger just for me!
Now, tomorrow, if you are 
and promise not to take tranquilizers
when you don't need them
I just might show you some pictures
from my daughter's
BABY SHOWER being held today.
Guess what color everything is.
You get one guess
as to whether it is a boy or a girl.
Have a blessed Sunday.
Oh, heck-
CELEBRATE with a Sundae.
You deserve it!

No wonder you don't have time for us anymore! The sledding idea is great and I love the haha game. Have fun at the shower today and hauling it all and the kids. Be safe on the roads.

Love the Ha Ha game. I would definitely be the first one out. It was 63 degrees here yesterday. Tonight we are under a winter storm warning. :(

Congrats on the girl.

Enjoy the baby shower. Safe travels. Looks like the perfect way to spend the day with your girls. Darling pictures. Now, I'm thinking I need to add some whip cream and chocolate to my coffee after seeing those sundaes.

Sounds like a fun day to me, Diana! Have fun at the shower. I went to one last Sunday, also for a baby girl.

Nancy's Notes said...

Wow! Winter Wonderland at Nana's! I can't believe you had so much snow, what fun! That Ha Ha game, love it! We even play it without one one's tummy! Oh my gosh, crazy laughs for sure! Can't wait to see shower photographs! What a fun day you have in store!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Looks like such a fun day...I love how inventive kids are! Can you believe my kids used to pile up sleeping bags in the foyer and on the stairs leading to it...and sled INSIDE the house?! Have a wonderful time at the baby shower!

Boopnut said...

You have a lot more snow than we do! Wow! The girls sure look like they had fun and the Ha Ha game sounds great!

You all just have too much fun, Diana! Wow, that snow drift looks more like a mountain to me! Have fun at your daughter's baby shower, a girl will be so sweet!!

Susie said...

Diana, So funny, the laughing game. It sure looked like lots of fun for everyone. Are you getting a bit tired of snow? I am .:( That groundhog saw his shadow too. Bummer. I may need to get a new snow shovel after this year. I always tease my big brother and tell him , I have worn out 3 shovels and working on the fourth one. :):) Stay warm and safe. xoxo,Susie

Simply LKJ said...

What fun!! The girls are quite creative. Only up north would you guys come in from the snow and eat ice cream. LOL And yes, I remember playing that game as a kid. We would also have starring contests...first to even crack a smile was out.

Japolina said...

Hurrah for pink! That is A LOT of snow. I can't even imagine

The Ha Ha game sounds so cute. What fun the girls have at your house. So sweet to see them enjoying time with you guys.

Ron said...

Can I come play??? Well? Except the snow is way, way too much.

Red Rose Alley said...

What a fun game, Diana. I've never heard of it before. This is such a cute picture of the girls laying on the floor - I can just hear them saying hahaha, and trying not to laugh uncontrollably. I don't think I'd be a winner either - I would start cracking up.


Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Looks like everyone had a grand time playing in the snow and then having a Hot Fudge Sunday (My very favorite). Yummmmmmmmmm
That Hahaha game sounds like fun.
So you are getting a little girl, doesn't you daughter have two boys? That will be great.
Stay warm and have a wonderful week.

Jane@Bluebird1959 said...

Lucille said...

Sorry, but I have missed a few of your posts. I don't know if it's because they did not come through or what happened. The HaHa game looks like a lot of fun. I had never heard of it. I think I would be the first one out! You certainly have a lot of snow.
