Oh my goodness, I am not sure if I have ever seen so much snow! Well, I know I have never seen so much fall at one time, since we set an all time record!!! So, I love the snow, I just wish that we were a little more mobile. Yup, the snow started Wednesday, and we finally got plowed out Saturday night at 11 p.m. I stood in the driveway in anticipation of finally seeing a snow plow. Then it snowed again. Oh well, I know that we will have a beautiful white Christmas this year and I love having snow on Christmas. Ryan stayed home on Thursday and Friday due to us being snowed in and most of the people that he works with were in similar situations, so his store just stayed closed for those two days. It was fun to spend time together, and Ryan took Callie outside to play in the snow while I stayed inside, where it was warm, with Peyton.

Yes, her favorite thing to do was eat the snow. She also took her bucket and shovel and played like it was sand.

She wasn't a big fan of her hood, even though it was sooooo cold outside.

Yea, Ryan buried her in the snow and she thought that was so much fun. There is just so much!

We tried taking some pictures that showed just how much there was, however, it is unbelievable unless you actually see it in person! We love winter here in the Northwest!!

Christmas Preparation

So, I wasn't great about taking very many pictures, but Callie had so much fun putting up the Christmas tree this year. We have a fake tree, so she was handing me each and every branch after Ryan gave it to her, so we put them in the right order. So, then I hung up the lights and then it was ornament time. So, she loved that and was helping me put some "high" and some "low." We have some stars and so we had to hang all of them and then she found these icicle type ornaments that I wasn't going to hang, but she thought they were flutes, so she would "play" the flute and then we had to hang each of those too. It was so cute, I loved it. That night she went to bed and we left the lights on the tree and the next morning when I got up she was standing in front of the tree and had taken down several of the ornaments so that she could hang them again! It was really sweet. She also loves our fisher price nativity. Mostly she likes to push the button on the top that sings the son, but sometimes she also plays with the people, I think next year she will like the nativity more to actually play with. Christmas has been a little more fun with her this year. She still doesn't understand everything, but she understands more and gets so excited about the different things that we do!
I am so excited to celebrate the holidays with our family and celebrate the birth of our Savior. We are so blessed this time of year and I hope that we can keep the spirit with us all through the year. I am grateful for the freedom I have to worship as I please, I am grateful for a Savior that came to this earth for me and each one of us. I am so grateful for an amazing family that supports and loves me. My husband is incredible and my girls help teach me every day. I hope that you all have a wonderful holiday and truly feel the spirit of Christmas!

TV Head

So, Callie is a TV Head, truly, she loves it more than anything I think, particularly Little Einsteins. So yesterday I was working on the Christmas project that had quite a deadline, so I let her watch to her hearts content. She watched the same Little Einsteins episode over and over again, the monster one. She has the entire episode memorized, I kid you not! She sings the high and low notes, truly, one of the funniest things I have ever witnessed, and sings along with Annie. She loves Annie's song so much, that she sings it whenever and wherever, with a microphone, which can be anything, crayon, magnet, pen, etc. So, she is watching tv all morning and she decided to make herself a little more comfortable.

Yup, she pulled the middle cushion out and made herself a little bed, what a goof, but a cute one!

She is very intent, do not disturb!

Coming soon will be the world's newest smurf, just waiting on pics, boy, you will all be grateful that it wasn't your child!

Cute Girls!

So I haven't posted any new pics of the girls and this post has no purpose but to post a new picture, cuz i think they are adorable! Except when Callie screams. Not so adorable. So indulge me, I have cute kids! She just took a bath and has her usual wild hair. If only she would keep it in a ponytail!!!
These sisters LOVE each other!!!! Callie loves Peyton and is so helpful!

She is the happiest, smiliest baby ever, I just want to gobble her up!


Thanks Ash, made me think a little!
