Today has been anticipated since we moved here, maybe even before then.  Everywhere we lived before we moved to the Helena Valley, my kids had a sledding hill within a 100 yards from the house.  When we lived in the flat valley by Lake Helena, they were extremely disappointed.  Even sliding off the loose haystacks wasn't good enough.  So, when we moved here and they saw the potential sledding options, they were ecstatic.  That is exactly how I would describe them the second they got in the car at school this snowy day.  I knew that the second we pulled up to the house they would be off like rockets, getting their snow gear, and heading the 100 yards out the front door to their new sledding hill.  They loved it!  It will probably take a few good days to pack down a good trail, but look out when they do.  I think KwinLee and Spencer could be professional sledders.

 I love the energy sledding burns.  What comes down, must hike their little tails up!

Morning after Halloween!

Simple costumes, but patient kids who were willing to work with what we had!  The boys had a great time, and KwinLee did get out for a little while, due to the stomach flu, she was down and out for most of it.  We had a great time.  Sunday night we met up with 9 other kids and their parents, and we went trick-or-treating around Dupuyer.  It was a blast, and many of the community members were expecting us, and treated the kids well.  Spencer commented on how we got more here in Dupuyer, then we ever did in Helena.  Not sure if I am excited about all the candy, but we will figure something out!
