...the rest of our snow day in pictures

after they cleaned their rooms, this is what the rest of our day looked like...






boys working on a snow fort...




a three year old enjoying the path he was carving in the un-touched snow and looking back at his foot prints....


















sitting down to warm up on pizza and hot cocoa for lunch....








listening to a sixteen year old share about her speech competition over the weekend...





peeking into the room where a eleven and twelve year old enjoyed playing together...









observing little hands making play dough creatures...






and guess what two giggling boys came up with all on their own, "daddy and mommy"
Yes, here we are...






And to end our day...my seven year old prepared a box of brownies for dessert while I made dinner. He did everything on his own. I only set the oven temp and of course put the brownies in the oven and took them out.












They turned out delicious! He's quite the little chef.

It was a great day!

That play doh couple is cracking me up. I didn't realize you had the tops of your ears pierced Chris!

Looks like a great day!

I LOVE IT!! I think Pastor M should incorporate the picture of the two of you into a sermon and disply it on the big screen sometime! What an awesome day for you! Hunter is a total sweetie, I must add!

These wonderful pictures bring back happy childhood memories. I loved the snow as a child. We stayed outdoors sledding, building snow forts and making snow angels until we were blue from the cold.
However, these days I truly appreciate living in Texas. I guess I'm just too old for snow angels.

What a fun day. I'm with your 3 yr. old. Making a path through brand new snow is the best. I love the play dough you! It's great!

What a fun day! Meanwhile, we've had very un-February like weather in the upper 60's!

Aside from the fact that it caused me to stumble by coveting your SNOW, I really enjoyed this post! I love these glimpses into your wonderful home and family. :)
