Snow Fun!

We haven't had a great winter involving snow so far at all. My kids have been super bummed about this. So I knew when they woke up to those snow flakes and a couple of inches on the ground I knew I was in for a significant amount of time outside!

So we got all bundled up...(there are so many layers here!)

gathered our gumption (okay maybe this was just momma's problem)and went to play outside...

They had so much fun... cleaning off cars and throwing snowballs. Making snow angels...this one was Nolan's First!

Hudson was under attack here...

All in all we played outside for about an hour and a half! Way longer than I ever imagined they would hang it was soooo cold! But we laughed and enjoyed so for me the memories were worth it.

Ringing in the New Year


Wow that seems crazy to me. Those numbers all strung together... how is that even possible???

We aren't big New Year's People normally. But this year our church had a fun little game night and we had a "fake" new year for the small people :) We had no shortage of fun for sure. Masks, games, snacks and treats. At 9:00 we went outside (too dark for pictures unfortunately) and banged on pots and pans and blew our noise makers and shouted Happy New Year!!! It was so fun to watch the kids ring it in with friends and fun.

These girls had some fun!

How can you not love all these little faces?

What is better than ringing in the New Year with friends?

The best part of this party? We were all home tucked in and safe before 10:00! What a great way to ring in the New Year!!

You're a Mean One...Mr. Grinch.

I forgot to post about how I got the kids matching Grinch Shirts on black Friday. I decided instead of giving them to them for Christmas, I would give them as one of there days for the Advent Calendar instead.

They look so cute in their matching shirts and hats!
