Snow Fort

Jay and the kids had fun making a snow fort over the weekend. We had wet snow that is great for packing although not a lot as you can see from all the dirt and leaves in the walls.

Making Cookies & Going Sledding

Sledding is always the best thing to do in the snow. The first real snow we had was last Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, Jake didn't have school (teacher in-service) so as soon as Jay got home, we went sledding. We only stayed outside for about an hour (it was 4 degrees) and then we came home and had hot chocolate and played games.

Last week the kids and I made candy cane cookies. They loved rolling the dough and twisting the colors to make the candy cane shape. They were so proud of themselves when the cookies were finished baking that they ate several as soon as they could!

Star Wars

Right before Thanksgiving there was a star wars extravaganza at our public library and Jake couldn't wait to go. He wanted to wear his storm trooper costume so bad! He loved posing with the "actors" for this picture.
