SNOW Much FUN!

We woke up this morning to heaps of snow. I know my brother serving a mission in Minnesota right now and our relatives in Alaska would probably roll their eyes...but it's a lot of snow to us. Church was even cancelled! (That's a first for me.)Nathan watched...as Willie shoveled the driveway and sidewalk.Oh what do you do in the wintertime when church is a no-go?

1. WEAR YOUR P.J.'S ALL DAY and draw, draw, draw. Draw until your fingers hurt and the paper supply is running low. 2. Snuggle with your baby on the couch pull-out bed. Then get your older brothers to join in on the fun, too!Show a little brotherly love with a few kisses.(Ah, lovin' on that Sweety Petey.)Kiss your baby brother...or pretend that you're too cool for that. (Even though Mom already has proof otherwise. Ahem, see above.)
2. Build a Star Wars ship and fly away with your brothers.(Pete's joining the big boys with his Bumbo.)(I love these little faces and imaginations.)(Away they go!)(May the force be with you!) 3. Pause for a snack of toast and hot chocolate.Yum!4. Get bundled up and head outdoors!(I took these pictures from inside the warm house.)(They were so happy to get out there in the cold stuff.)4. Build a huge snowman out front with your dad. Roll 'em, roll 'em, roll 'em! (Josh and Dad rolling the base of the snowman.)Steadily pack that snowman that is taller than you.You know your snowman is big when Dad has to lift you up to put the eyes in!AND put the hat on.The biggest (and cutest) snowman in Kahumoku creation. And that's what we do in the wintertime when all the world is white. It's been a fun day. Jake's got his fingers crossed that school will be cancelled tomorrow...

Wow, what a snowman! Does he have a name? It looks like you guys thoroughly enjoyed the snow-from inside and out. Was there school today? Just curious:)

You can just see how much fun those cute boys were having! And that's the best looking snowman I've ever seen! It reminds me of one that was on a Gap ad.

The whole thing looks like a lot of fun. What a snowman! He will last a l-o-n-g time! I love all those Kahumoku faces. Love, Grandma Truman

The snowman's name is Frosty. Original, I know. School was not cancelled but there was a two-hour delay start. Jake was pleased.

Wahoo! Glad you you are back. Sounds like church should be canceled EVERY Sunday if they are fun days like that. Your boys are the cutest. It was so fun to see new pics of em all!

Holy Snow! Kind of fun, kind of crappy. :) Those pictures of your boys are SO absolutely darling! They should totally be framed. Also, thanks for the compliments on the playroom rules board. I can't remember how big it is. When I get unlazy I'll measure it. I want to see the one you did for the boys...did you post it?
