Before we moved into our new house we were stuck in the hotel for a long time. The kids were getting super antsy but the weather on some of the days was too chilly to get out and do much. One of the days, in fact, there was an ice storm which closed the roads and iced our car shut!
On one of the days when the weather was a bit warmer we took the kids for a picnic in the park. The kids were ecstatically happy to get out and run around.

I am not sure if this was the first snow storm last winter or the last snow storm, but these are indeed the last snow pictures that I have of the kids in Utah. No more snow!....unless it does, by miracle, snow here. But the kids made the most of last winter, however, and spent a great deal of time outside building snowmen, sledding, and having snowball fights. Good Times. :)

Christopher had a really fun birthday this year that involved no fewer than 4 birthday parties. He had an early birthday party in St. George while all of the family was together. He got a rubber band gun from grandma and grandpa. On the Saturday before his birthday he invited some of his friends to go with him to go sledding at the park with his Dad. That night Chris opened up two of his presents, a wii game (kirby's epic yarn) and a new controller for the wii, so that he and Ayden could play it. He got a fun card and money from his Idaho grandparents. The day of his actual birthday was a Sunday so we had a small party that evening with cupcakes and Chris opened the rest of his presents. He got some Legos, a game (headbandz), and a pottery wheel.

For the last several years my mother has hosted a Thanksgiving / Way Early Christmas Celebration at her house in St. George. Besides all of the usual Thanksgiving festivities of food and family, my mom also decided to do all of the fun Christmas activities during that time seeing as how it is the only time of year that we are all together as a family. Some of our traditions include the 5 dollar dice game, a fishing pond for the kids, holiday bingo with fun prizes, and a lot of game playing and fun.
