A Sunbeam

Colton had a nasty cough the first two weeks of January so we kept him home from church. Colton has attended nursery since he was 18 months old but now that he is three, it's time to move up. This past Sunday was his first time going to sunbeams. And this is what he thought of it--
The primary presidency was attempting to get pictures of all the kids joining primary this year. They kept apologizing to me because they couldn't get a good picture of Colton. I just laughed!

A Mini Snow Storm

We had a serious dumping of snow over the weeekend. We went to bed Friday night with about two inches on the ground and woke up eight hours later to a full 15 inches. After all was said and done, I would guess we had at least 18, maybe 20 inches of snow. I felt so bad for the workers trying to remove all the snow, they just couldn't keep up. The kids loved the snow-- I set them loose on our deck and they played for a good 30 minutes before getting too cold. I have to say, I LOVED waking up to tons of snow. I think it's so fun. I hope this is the first of many snow dumps to come this winter.

Before Christmas, we went over to my sister's house, Nicole, in Indiana. My younger sister, Shelly, flew in from Phoenix to spend the holiday there. Shelly and I had a blast talking about all our old shenanigans from when we were younger....the memories. The nights were filled with treats and long talks amongst the adults. My kids played hard all day with their cousins. Colton is quite attached to Jaxon--he refers to him as his favorite cousin. It was a short trip, but it was well worth it to hang out with Shelly for a few short days!

Colton playing soccer with Jaxon. Colton asked him to play with him and I could tell he didn't really want to go outside, but being the nice cousin he is, he went anyways.
I made sugar cookies for the kids to decorate. They seemed to like the cookies and if you look at Colton-- he seemed to like the frosting!

Nicole's kids were so nice-- the insisted on giving my kids Christmas gifts!

All the cousins together!
SISTERs! Nicole is on the far right... she looks the same age as Shelly and I, huh? She is 8 years older than Shelly...I think.
She couldn't resist the hand heart on the baby bump...oy.
