"Snow" day

Today we had our second "snow" day in less than a week.  the first one didn't effect us because it fell on a Friday.  The roads iced over pretty bad and there were over 500 traffic accidents.  Today, we had a good amount of snow and ice expected.  Well, I'm not sure if you can call what we had "snow" but we had a few very cold little things fall from the sky.  The ice really didn't happen either, not as bad as Friday. 
Zak went into work but the boys and I spent most of the day inside hanging out in big fort we built in the living room.  The boys spent 5 minutes at a time in the back yard hunting "crystals" (icicles).  Snow or no snow I loved having both my boys home for an unexpected yucky weather day.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

We had such a special Christmas and New Years.

We started out by letting the boys open one gift on  Christmas Eve.
(Something I had to talk Zak into!)
 Before it got dark we sprinkled the yard with Reindeer Food. 
This is possibly one of my all time favorite pics...Ever!

 Christmas Eve night we headed to Grammy Phyllis and Dan's house for their annual Christmas Eve party. 
 Aron, Ricky and Lisa were in town this year!

 When we got home Colton set out stuff for Santa, just right. 

 Christmas morning started out super early.
Santa came!

 About 8 am, as usual, we headed to Nanny and Grandads.

 After a trip home to unload and a quick nap...

 We made it to Gaga and PawPaws.

 That evening The Burroughs family joined us for a big Christmas dinner.

 The next morning the boys played hard with all of their toys...

 Before heading over to Nana's for a second Christmas dinner. 

A few days later, more of Gaga's family got together at Nana's.

 After a few days of rest,
we started to celebrate the new year with 

Here's to an amazing 2014!
