So, we finally got a few inches of the fluffy white stuff...... of course, it was 2 days AFTER Christmas, but- that is okay. The first snowfall is always fun no matter when it is, but after that- I long for April. Of course, the girls were aching to go outside and play in it. So, we all (boys and girls) went out to play. The boys played a few minutes and went inside because they were cold. (They probably wouldn't have been so cold if they had not lost their gloves already!)
Ellen & Meghan LOVED the snow!!!! They outlasted us all and probably would have stayed out there longer if I hadn't wimped out and had them come in because I was cold!!!
And, as always, Christmas was an absolutely wonderful day. We spent time reflecting on the best Christmas gift of all- the Savior- as well as giving each other gifts, spending time with family and each other. Santa was good to them this year! I was so busy giving out gifts and watching their joy, that I left Aaron in charge of pictures. He didn't take a whole ton, but here are a few good ones of Christmas day and the day after.
Ellen & Meghan are into dress up now. Santa was smart and visited Walmart a few days after Halloween and loaded up on "dress up" clothes for all 4 kids!
Santa also found this awesome train table used for a great deal! The boys are always setting up their train tracks around the basement- maybe this will keep them more contained! (Santa was good to me as well..... see the Wii Fit box?? I have no excuse not to exercise now, huh?)
Both girls are very into pretend play, which makes the costumes, as well as the Raggedy Ann dolls from Grandma Janet a hit. Meghan enjoyed feeding her doll breakfast!
So, once again, it was a wonderful holiday. I am truly grateful for my family and all that we have been blessed with. We are so so very fortunate.
