Yesterday, we got DUMPED on! We got over 12 inches overnight! It was a mess!!! Our school district hasn't had a Snow Day in years, but they decided to make it a half-day and let the parents decide whether or not to send their kids. We needed help to dig ourselves out of the driveway, so we kept them home! Ha ha ha! They pretty much spent the whole day out in the snow, either shoveling driveways in the neighborhood or digging trenches for snowball fights! They had a blast!

Sammy begged and begged me to help her build a snowman. So, when it became clear that she wasn't going to let up, I helped her build one. The snow was perfect for it!

Brendan absolutely LOVES to play in the snow. After about an hour of jumping in it and almost becoming an icesicle, he screamed when I brought him inside! I even tried to bribe him with cookies and watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (two of his favorite things) and it still didn't help! Oh, well, he's all boy I guess!

Christian's Gingerbread House

Christian's 4th grade class had an activity of building Gingerbread Houses last week. They invited parents to come and help. Unfortunately, they held it at the same time as Sammy's Kindergarten program and we weren't able to go:( Thankfully, Aunt Jacque came to the rescue and went to help Christian! He was really happy to have her come!

Their little house turned out pretty cute!

Sammy's Kindergarten Program

Sammy's Kindergarten program was last week. She was so funny about it! When she first learned that they were going to be doing a Christmas program she came running home and said "Mommy, it's so exciting! We get to sing in a program!" But as it got closer she started to say "I'm so nervous, Mommy!" It was so sweet! The program turned out so well! All of the kids were so adorable! I just wish I could put the video of it on here. Our computer just doesn't want to work with our video camera :( Oh, well. Here are a few pictures.
