Christmastime didn't really feel like Christmastime this year. The beautiful fall weather was hanging on for dear life and it seemed like it was only about a week before Christmas that it actually got cold.
The first real storm came in on a Tuesday evening and Colby and I were with the Young Men and Young Women from church for a little trip to the St. George Temple. We got home a little late but decided the kids needed to play in that snow! I've gotten to be a bit of a stickler on bed time around here, but we all know that snow in Hurricane doesn't last long and I was sure we wouldn't have time to play in it before school, so I told the kids to put some snow clothes over their PJs and get out there!
They loved it! Their favorite game was "hit Mommy with the snowballs" so it was a great time.
In the meantime, Baby Sister stayed inside. She just hung out on her blanket, totally ok with sharing Mom with her brothers for a bit.
After trying everything they could think of with the snow (apparently throwing snow at the house is HILARIOUS) they built a snowman. He was a cute little guy that lasted a couple days...
The first picture is him the next morning looking cheery.
We got another fun storm the day after Christmas and they shot their new bows & arrows and rode their new scooters all over in that snow.
