S to the N-O-W!

There is just something about watching the snow fall that is extremely calming. We have had such a fun day playing and being lazy around here that it almost feels like a vacation:-). Ryan got out of school at 11:30 today and couldn't wait to get home and throw some snowballs. By the way, He's a great shot. Here's a few pictures of our Terrific Tuesday.
This is the only time sweet Ally ventured outside. She likes looking at the snow from inside the warm house. But she sure does look cute (thanks Heather for these ear muffs...PRECIOUS!)


Ryan has been smiling non-stop today. Such a treat!

Oohhh Ahhh so pretty

Our mini-Vader Snowman

Ryan and I had so much fun building this. We came up with all sorts of ideas for awesome snowmen. He loves to be creative!

Oh course then he had to get in a little light saber duel.

And that turned into light saber baseball? Thanks R-man for playing with me today. I love seeing your big boy smile, it warms my heart!


Thank you Lord for this perfect day. (And for the 10:00 start tomorrow:-)).

This turned out to be one FUN day for kids (well, parents too!) Your snowman is a HIT at our house. We drove around our neighborhood rating the snowmen. Landry just saw this picture and has voted it #1 in his book. ha!

Looks like you guys enjoyed the day!

I truly just never thought I would see the day that Angie Purdy would be out in the snow with a light saber. That post was pure hilarity! And that snowman - don't even know what to say? Laughter all over this one....
