Let it SNOW!

We woke up to this wonderful sight this morning. 2 feet of snow. Thank you Weather Man for the heads up. His forcast was rain and light snow, a possible 2-4 inches.

They got in a snow fight in the middle of me taking pictures. Lloyd thought I would be a great target, and yes he is in shorts! Can you see the snowball flying my way?
I guess we got our white Christmas :)

Gingerbread Fun

It's that time of year where we have our annual gingerbread house night. My sisters and their families come over. This year was so fun. We decorated, ate, then headed off the see Narnia. It was such a fun night. Making all the pieces and then trying to put them together is such a pain, but worth it. I swear I ask myself every year "Why didn't I just buy premade ones?"

Lloyd has just as much fun as the kids!

McKenna turned 9 on November 16. I can't believe she is already so big. Where have the years gone. It seems like just a few years ago I was rocking her to sleep and playing peek-a-boo! She had a birthday week instead of day this year. We had our family party on Sunday, actual birthday on Tuesday, and then friend party on Saturday. We had lots of fun celebrating our special girl.

Friend party included 3 hours of:
*Decorate your own fairy wings.
*Pin the wings on the fairy.
*Treasure hunt planned by fairies.
*Make your own Pizza.
*Balloon popping/bubble gum game.
*Musical Present.
*Fairy pinata.
*And of course - cake, ice cream and presents!

The Family party was very low key:
*Lots of smiles!
