Snow Day!

We woke up to snow this morning!  Typically, that’s not a shocking sight to see  in mid-February.  We’ve had such an incredibly mild winter though, that this was indeed shocking.  We took full advantage early this morning, and by the afternoon, it had all melted.



Ammon shook the trees so snow would fall on the boys.


Their dad is so cool.


Griffin’s mittens were covered in snow.  Ammon taught him how to clap and rub them together to get the snow off.


Griffin’s favorite part was eating the snow.










Trying to fling snow at Daddy.


It was so fun while it lasted!

Bedtime games…

Noah and Griffin have shared a room for 2 years now.  They are so used to having the other one right next to them.  When we tuck them in, they laugh and talk for varying amounts of time until one of them falls asleep.  Usually Griffin gives in first.  Before Ammon and I go to bed, we always go in their bedroom to check on them and make sure they are comfortable and covered up.  Plus, it does wonders for my soul to see my children so peaceful.  My “mom tank” gets drained daily and seeing them sleep fills it right back up immediately.  A couple nights ago, we walked in and didn’t see them in their beds.  Upon further investigation we found them here:


Under Noah’s bed, with their pillow pets and squinkies.  No doubt they were playing some game right up until the moment they drifted off to sleep.  I was able to drag them out and tuck them into their beds without them waking up.  The next morning when we asked them about it, Noah said, “Oh yeah… that was my idea.”  That’s all we got about their fun night under the bed.
