Snow fun

Here we are: ready to play!

First we did mini-sledding down this teeny slope beside our house, on Joey's snowboard. The kids loved it:)

Then we started the task of building our snowman

Or should I say snow cowgirl:) Yeehaw!!

Joey and Aubrey stayed outside for about 2 hours longer than me and the little girls building a snow fort. It was pretty awesome!! I think that will be a memory Aubrey holds dear forever. Some one on one time with her Daddy.

Here is Ella smacking the tree branch with a broom handle so that the snow would fall on her:)

Zac with a snow beard
Yellow snow....

Cali saying, "Zaaa-aaac, no peepee on our snow!"

Happy faces

Later we went to an area nearby with big hills and tried our hand at sledding. We brought Joey's snowboards and a laundry basket. We invited a couple of other families to come out so the kids had a blast playing with their friends!

Joey, Cali & Ella. Joey managed to hold onto the laundry basket while sliding down with Ella on the snowboard. That mans got skillz I tell ya:)
I just watched and took pictures the whole time(and yet I still managed to slip and fall somehow, I'm okay! But I felt stupid:) Joey snapped this cute pic of me and Cali. Cali had her tongue out pretty much all day:) She loved the taste of snow.

Aubrey and friends, Samantha, Paige & Courtney.

I love that the snow fort had an American flag and that you used laundry baskets for sledding! :)

I love all these photos I can't pick a favorite one because with each one its just so dang cute and such great captions. You guys all look like you've lived in the snow forever and knew exactly what to do how great for the girls to have such wonderful memories that's what its all about~Family Isn't It About Time~ hey where have I heard that before. Wonderful that you could share it with friends too that makes the fun even more special. Also, the pictures from the Record Snowfall were awesome just like post cards beautiful and spiritual in its own way.

That was one awesome snow fort those two built! Good job! And loved all of the pics, especially that adorable one of Cali with her tongue out catching the snowflakes. And it looked as though you guys used up all that snow pretty quickly. :)
