A Handmade Gift for a Snowy Sunday

Hels made a snow measuring stick for Nels this Christmas. She (with her Uncle's help) used a block plane to smooth one side and scrape away the bark, then labeled it with a sharpie.


Here it is in use. It currently reads 22" which makes for great sledding.


Here goes everybody down the hill. The girls are always so very happy when Nels and I join them.


Train wreck at the bottom.


A rest in her personal snow cave.

More handmade Christmas gifts to be revealed later this week....

OK! So I won't complain about the foot of snow we just received.
I think we'll take out toboggan out tomorrow, it is too powdery today.

You are so lucky to have snow. It looks like oodles of fun!

Now that is a handy gift for your neck of the woods!

We've had such a thaw that the big snow piles are almost gone. There were a few days of fun sledding because they were so icy, but now it's all mush. Hopefully we'll get more snow soon -- we want to make a snow cave too!

I'm feeling quite green with envy, as we are still wishing for a heavy snowfall. There is nothing like a day out in the white stuff to rejuvenate the spirit!!!
I love the snow stick...how creative!
