Snow day

The second snow fall for the kids but my first snow day with them.  We were finally able to use the sled we got last year!

My two early risers.  They had played in the white stuff the night before and then laid out all their snow gear so they could literally jump out of bed and get outside the first thing in the morning.  I think they were afraid it would melt away if they waited until after breakfast!

#5 wanted to show me that the garden was covered up.  He had a lot of fun in snow this year, no crying because his hands were cold(like last year:).

Cutie  #4

The kids(minus the oldest who didn't play out today).  Tested three hills in our neighborhood.

I joined them for the backyard fun.  I don't know when the last time I was on a sled but it was so fun!  I felt so blessed today, to be home with my kids...playing outside, making hot chocolate and playing with Christmas gifts.  I am looking forward to 2013 and what it brings.  I am filled with joy in my soul.

Christmas time

 Working on the (2nd) annual Christmas morning shot.  Well, it is now right before supper but we are still in pj's/lounge wear so it'll work.

What a beautiful, loving family.....wait a minute.  I'm missing someone.

Oh, right the oldest didn't sleep the night before and it caught up with him.  He had fallen asleep in a living room chair and I woke him up so he could eat dinner.  Well, turns out he was way too sleepy to snap a picutre with us and ended up going to bed to catch up on his sleep.


Lucky for him I had gotten this picture before a Christmas singing.  For these shots it was the youngest who was out of sorts!  Most of the pictures have him squirming away, LOL!
Hope you and yours had a very Merry Christmas!!
