What to do with Snow Days???

1) Pull teeth (Caleb lost his first tooth on Monday...yeah!)

2) make forts

3) make 6' piles of snow (this one behind Kendall is easily taller than I am)


not pictured: fight, ask for snacks and play with neighbor friends

January photos

One of the above is a frequent behavior of Kendall's. Guess which...

 The Blizzard of 2014--lots of snow and the longest Christmas break ever.    Actually, these photos may have been before all of the snow.  Those snow banks don't look nearly as high as they eventually got. 

Caleb's school musical, The Color Factory.  He had a part of 'blue crayon'.

Christmas 2013

 Some winter scenes from our backyard.  I was only willing to open the back slider door to take these, not actually walk out there--so not the best shots, but still beautiful.

 no idea what google automatically did to the Christmas lights.  huh.  nice photo of the three together.

 Josie's favorite toy:  Kendall's princess castle.

 Josie's quickly forgotten about toy: her new bike (purple and pink, I might add, just like she requested)
 The V-side cousins.  all 10 sitting still. 
 Aaron and Kendall: 2 months apart

 princesses?  cupcakes?  perfect.
