World Snow Day!

 
Grace and I spent the afternoon enjoying everything snow!  Today is World Snow Day (who knew!!??) and my town hosted an event with skiing, skating, tobogganing, horse drawn wagon rides and of course hot chocolate!
The day was mild and snowing and we stopped by Grandma and Grandpa's on the way home soaking and tired.  I secretly love that smell of wet snow pants and boots (any parent of a young child or primary teacher will know exactly the smell I'm referring to!) It makes me think of fun and that smell is a sure sign that big snow fun has just been had!
 


Grace was calling the horses to come back, yelling at the top of her lungs!  She is so hilarious some times!!!

Wipe out!!!


What you don't see if the mega-hill on the other side of where we were.  Grace wanted so badly to go down that big hill with her little toboggan.  I held her off by telling her we hadn't brought her helmet.  I'm good till next year now I hope!  She's such a dare devil!



Grace spent two or three minutes trying to get on this train toy, only to say she was done two or three seconds after finally getting on!

More Christmas Fun

 Anna!!  Will she ever tire of Frozen!!??

   
Goofing around with cousins.  Poor Daisy had no bed while Grace and the little K-man build forts with Daisy's couch cushions.


 
Christmas holidays are the absolute best time to have your nap on the couch.... or Grandpa's chair or the recliner or on the floor or the.... well, you get it!

On the Third Day of Christmas!







On the third day of Christmas.... or for us Boxing Day!  We celebrated our official Christmas dinner on Boxing Day this year.  Eddy's three kids were missed but we had a good dinner and get together swimming and exchanging gifts.



I'm sure she will laugh at these pictures when she's older.  Riding K's roller coaster in her good dress and Elsa wig!  What a character she is!



A big Barney!  Yeah!!!!!

Fooling around with cousin S

Making a birthday cake for Baby Jesus!  Yummy!


Nothing says Christmas like swimming in your Santa hat!!!


To quote Grace.....  " I like icing!"

More Frozen!  Oh My!


Grace decided Jesus needed 3 candles, lol






On the First Day of Christmas


Well, not truly the first day of Christmas, but Christmas eve.  We went to Mass then visited with Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt Lynda and family.  Before we left for church, of course Grace had to set out cookies for Santa!!!


Checking out the Nativity at church

Relaxing with a little apple juice after church in special Christmas cups
