Baby... It's COLD Outside!

We haven't seen snow for over a month.  And, even then it was only a couple inches that lasted for a few days tops.

I was beginning to think we were still in Oklahoma with the weather we had.  I'm talking 50+ degree weather.  In fact, we went to the park one day because it was so warm and Andrew got 6 stitches in his chin.

Well, winter seems to have finally found its way here.  It has been snowing slowly but steadily for about 36 hours and our high today was 14 degrees.  I have no idea how much snow we have, but it has drifted right outside our front door and is perfect for the kids to jump in and play.  They are completely in love with the snow.  (Aside from the fact that they need better gloves and their fingers are freezing off).

 You almost couldn't get bigger smiles on these kids' faces!

Play Nice

Emma and Andrew have a tendency to push each other's buttons frequently.  They both like to push buttons, but they don't like their buttons pushed.  Imagine that!

But, there are days (like today) when they play perfectly together.  
Today it's because of the temple. 

See that pink castle on the left of the picture?

That's their "temple."

Andrew keeps saying, "Hurry Emma!  It's time for the Daddy to marry his HONEY in the temple!"

So, then all the puppies and Little People and Super Heroes rush to the castle and watch the Daddy marry his honey.

I have a smile (1) because they are having fun together, (2) because Andrew calls girls "honeys" sometimes, and (3) because he understands he should get married in the temple.

I just had to call Dennis and tell him about it while he was at work.
