Well the day after Christmas the kids were ready to play in the snow.
We did all the snow-type activities including make snow angels.
Play in it.
Throw LOTS of snowballs.
Also we were so thankful for all that MoMo put in our stockings because at some point that week--I think we used it all! Including the hat and gloves for each of the kiddos!
I was trying to get a picture of her throwing a snowball at me but I moved the camera dodging. I do love her sweet eyes and that hat, though!
Catching flakes on his tongue.
Eating a little snow. I think this is when he decided snow was delicious. Today (during spring break mind you) it was snowing huge flakes and Reid looked outside and said, "It's snowing! That looks yummy!"
Our family photo. Can you tell we rolled out of bed, bundled up, and walked right outside? (:
We made this sad looking little snowman. Ha! I can't look at the picture without laughing. It looks like a skeleton snowman.
And we made snow ice cream.
So, yeah, the kids had the best time ever.
We decided since we still didn't have power we were going to go to Peggy's because she had power--so Matt shoveled the driveway. Leave it my man to be outside in a t-shirt and his pants rolled up into shorts outside in the snow. Love that man!
We saw trees down on our way everywhere--in fact, one of them fell into Mike and DeDe's garage room and put a hole in it. We were so thankful for a warm place to stay and everyone safely together, and of course for the fun memories!
I snagged Matt up out of the dating pool and we got married 8 1/2 years ago! He is an amazing husband to me and awesome father to our two little ones. We are just a couple of Christian people trying to get closer to God, reflect Him better, and raise our children in His Word and His Way!! We are loving every minute of this busy/fun/blessed life!
This little princess is a mixture of sweet and sassy! She keeps us laughing with practically every word that comes out of her mouth. She can melt your heart with a smile and a giggle and then turn right around and keep you on your toes with some mischeviousness! Her facial expressions give away her every thought and we just couldn't love her more (but somehow tomorrow we will)!
This is our boy with the magic smile! He is a perfect mixture of sweet and snugglie and ALL boy. He is laid-back like his Daddy and full of energy like his sister. He is happy climbing and dancing or curled up reading a book with Mommy. He is always learning some new trick and we can't wait to see what he is going to do and say next!
My handsome man and I have been married for 7 years. We are the extremely blessed parents of Lilly and Reid. This blog documents our lives, allows the grandparents and other family to see regular pictures of the little cuties, and helps friends and family stay in the know about us! Overall, we are simply a God-loving family of four!
