Snow Fun Part II

We took the kids to the snow last year [for the first time] and we/they had SO much fun. Unfortunately Kailee wasn’t able to go last year, so we really wanted to try and find time to squeeze in a snow trip while she was here. Luckily it all worked out and we were able to go. We took a trip up to Leland Snow Park which is in Strawberry. We spent a lot of time tubing [thank goodness we paid a little extra for our tickets and got the ‘tow up’ service because it sure beats hiking up a great big tall snowy hill just to slide right back down it]! LOl! After we went tubing and grabbed some lunch we went to a different play area where the snow was a lot softer. Next time we may just skip the tubing all together, or just go for a couple of hours. The kids loved sliding down the hills, but I think they had even more fun just playing in the snow! It was awesome family time. There was a lot of tackling and snow ball fights going on. Good times and great memories! We may try and find some time to squeeze in another trip this year ... we shall see! Next time we go I won't be feeding the kids before we hit the road! All of the kids [besides Kailee] got car sick! Very strange, they have never done that before! First it was Justin, then Dae, and right as we were pulling up to the park it was Allie's turn. Good thing they were all wearing layers, yuck!

Kailee 'rockin' her snow overalls ... her words not mine! lOl

Aw, where's Just?!

Big mouth

This tube became our make shift snow stroller for a while! He was tired and need a nap! Isn't he so cute! All the Mom's that walked by thought it was great idea, I'm not sure the park would agree! hehe

She wasn't throwing this at me, but it sure looks like! [she knows better when I'm holding a camera] lOl!
Look closely ... do you see Kailee's body??

We do it in the sand so why not the snow?!

Damon fell asleep too! Aw!

Daddy & Mommy
Damon is in there too ... some where! We held on to each other and went down the hill together. I think someone ran into us [see them right behind us]! We had SO much fun going down the kiddie hill! It was fast! We wiped a few people out!

She would drag her sled up the hill all by herself! She LOVED it!
Being a great big sissy!

Almost all looking!!

A lil late, but better late then never, right?! The kids Ray & Kailee woke everyone up at 6AM! I was hoping to sleep until at least 7! lOl! We had to wake the other kids up and only the baby took a nap that day ... although I really wanted to! lOl

We went over to Ray's Grandpa's house this year! That's where all the fam was gathered! Good times as always! I didn't take very many pictures Christmas day ... mostly just of Christmas morning! Not sure what happened.

I should of taken a picture of what the house looked like after all the presents were open, chaos!!
Santa's lil delivery

A few pictures of the munchkins opening/playing with their presents! ...

These Littlest Pet Shops are taking over our house! Take note of her pj's and Dae's pj's ... her and Damon insisted they wear Daddy's t-shirt to bed, so why not!
He still loves him some Buzz! Good thing they are making another Toy Story and Buzz is still available!
He LOVES his train table! We love it too because everything is built right into the table! Damon had a train table, but the tracks were always coming apart and making me crazy! Justin's train table is way more portable too, so when the weather gets warmer and he wants to play outside with it ... it will totally be do-able!
Opening her new laptop! We decided on the smaller notebooks because we were thinking it would be easier for her to travel with [and they are WAY cute]! She loved it!
So silly!
The kids all dressed up and lookin' spiffy!

The lost & forgotten

So ... as I was going through pictures from Christmas I came across some that I totally forgot about! They are from the beginning of December when we decorated our Christmas trees. I should say we were all in jammies ... probably should've picked cuter ones, but whatever! lOl!

We had two trees ... one that the kids got to decorate all by themselves. They can put the ornaments anywhere they want, even if that means 15 bulbs all top of each other. Then we have our 'Macy's tree'! Think the kids did a pretty fantastic job on their tree!

Picking out just the right spot!
He looks guilty of something!
He wasn't interested at first, but it didn't take him long to start lovin' it!
A lil help from Daddy
And, Mommy!
Takin' a squeeze break
See what I mean about the 15 bulbs, lOl

Right on!
