Eye Checkup and First Big Snow!

Well, I'm playing catchup from last month.  January was rough.  I blame it on third-grade tempers and spasticity, which doesn't always mean the best of things.  Still, we had some highlights...

We went for an eye checkup at her opthalmologist.  E still has two eyes that don't like to work together.  That's all good--I'm happy as long as things don't seem to get terribly worse.  One of her eyes are farsighted, and has changed a bit.  The other might have too, but in general, Elena's eyes are holding status quo.  She gets a small change in prescription.  

The big news during this trip was we were due for our first big snow.  We've had some snow this season, but either it didn't stick, or it was a slushy mess.  I didn't want to miss this one...so I packed EVERYTHING.  Snow gear, sleds, gloves, hats--and kept them in the car.  We were ready.  

We ended up at her appointment super early so as to not get snowed out--and then we got home in time to have lunch and get outside in the awesome SNOW!!!


Ready to go!

The snow was cold and dry, so great for sledding but not for making a snowman.


Angel girls

We wen sledding right outside Grandma and Grandpa's house, but that wasn't enough...so we drove a short way to a popular sledding hill.  The girls had a BLAST!  (no pics/video--it was cold and pretty labor intensive for grown-ups).  We stayed an extra day before heading home.  Before we left, E and Viv helped wipe off our car and Viv helped Grandpa shovel the driveway.


Grandpa's little helper

Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for letting us stay with you before, during, and after the storm.  Your hospitality and snow help were wonderful!
