Gingerbread houses

KaileeJo had her friends Carter, and Kaden over to make gingerbread (grahmcracker) houses. They all turned out really cute. KaileeJo had a hard time not eating a lot of the candy, but was really excited to put some on the house. They did such a good job. The only way I could convince KaileeJo not to eat it was to tell her that she needed to show daddy when he got home.

Snow Angels

More playing outside with daddy!

We pulled a heart shape with the sled in the snow!

Taydom making snow Angels

Going for a ride in the sled.

Today wan't bitter cold so we took the girls out in the snow. Taydom got to come because it got up to 15 today and we found the snowsuit. Taydom had a lot of fun making the snow angels as you can see. She also loved being pulled in the sled with her big sister. I figure it takes just about as long to get ready to go outside as we are outside but it is still fun.

Pics of the House

This is the outside of our house (don't mind the snow).

The front view from the street.

Our cars in our large driveway. Note the basketball hoop.

The back of the house.

Our backyard from our house looking back. We love the 5 1/2 foot fence that fully encloses the yard. It is a little hard to tell but it is about 1/2 an acre with 3 apple trees, 2 apricot trees, 2 plum trees, 2 cherry trees (that don't produce yet) a grape vine, a peach tree (that doesn't produce yet) and a swing set with swings and a slide. The shed in the back is lined with shelves and is great for storage. We love our house and maybe some day we will post pictures of the inside. Inside there are three rooms we uses as bedrooms, an office, a toy room, two bathrooms, kitchen, living room, laundry area, and storage under the stairs. It is plenty big for our family. We feel so blessed to have such a nice place to live.

Fun in the Snow!!

We had a fairly good snow storm come through and since Adam was home, he thought he would take advantage of the time with KaileeJo and play in the snow. They both had a great time. It was way to cold for Taydom. Maybe she can play if the temperature gets out of the teens. KaileeJo loves to play in the snow. She loves to eat it as you can see. She also loves to through snow balls and has been practicing inside with other balls. I ask her to through the ball to me and she says "no mama no ball". She is now starting to realize that it is cold and that it might not always be the best idea to stick her bare hands in it but she usually doesn't remember this until her hands are already covered in snow.
