And since there's no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Before I go too much further, I need to finish up our winter wonderland extravaganza.  
We went sledding no less than 307 times.  Or maybe it was only 4 times, but it felt like more.  Whatever it was, we went through every mitten, boot, and hat that exists in the south-western United States. 
Tess was the biggest dare devil of them all!  She went up and down the hill twice for each time the other kiddos went up once.  She wanted to go more and faster than anyone else!  This girl is a force to be reckoned with, and I love love love that about her!
And this young man, aka the snuggle love bug who is absolutely head over heels in love with his baby sister, went out of his way to show his littlest sister all about snow.  And make sure she was warm enough.  And love on her.  
Boo is an wonderful big brother!
It is a huge ol' blessing to watch them together!  Makes this mama's heart melt in to a puddle of goo when I see them together!
These are our cousins that joined us!  Quite the crew!
And then it started to snow.  But that didn't slow down these desert rats!  The sledding continued!
Is there anything better than snowflakes that stay on (your nose and) eyelashes?  This little one is so amazingly beautiful!  Sometimes I'm just going about my mommy business, and I turn around and see her, am still simply awed by her striking features!  There is such beauty in diversity!
This is my wonderful sister-in-law, Auntie S.  She's a saint among women because she trudged up and down that mountain, taking the little ones up and down on the sled again and again while I stood around taking photos!  Thank you, Auntie S!
You may not be able to tell from the above photo, but Mimi really did love sledding.  She had no problem going fast.  About every 5 min, she'd walk up to someone and say "sled now!"
And these 3 amigos were as thick as thieves .. as was the snow that was coming down!
And this is only 2 of the 307 times we went sledding.  
Or maybe it was just 4.

    Love the snow on the eyelashes....she is beautiful. As was already commented on...Love the action shots and flying pigtails! That baby MiMi is edible! Love the smiles, and laughed out loud at the "every boot, mitten hat in the south west us" comment! Oh how I can relate to that.
