Fun in the snow

This is the kids favorite thing to do when we get enough snow. Since we don't have any hills or mountains close by we have to get a little creative. We use to use the golf cart but now we have the 4-wheeler it is much funner. (You can get going so much faster with it!)

KC likes to 'practice' with his snowboard.

Jud's word of the day

Most everyone knows what a huge imagination Judson has. One of his latest things is to play dress-up. He likes to go down into Mataya's room and get a jacket or big shirt of some sort, get one of her scarves and wrap it around his neck, put her shower cap on his head, hang one of her bags over his arm and slip on a pair of her shoes. He will come parading upstairs as "Grandma." It gets quite hilarious some of the things he comes up with.
Today he decided he wanted to dress up his big teddy bear. He was asking Taya for things and informed her he needed the 'masks.' Mataya came upstairs almost doubled over in laughter. It took her a few minutes to figure out what he meant until he demonstrated for her. His 'masks' was a bra. We got a good laugh outa that one!

p.s. she talked him out of putting a 'mask' on the teddy bear.

Homemade Christmas Nativities

I have a thing for Christmas Nativities. I especially like to find patterns of ones I can make. This year John bought me a buffet cabinet so now I have room to display all the nativities I have collected. It is kind of fun! These are some that I have made over the past few years. Some of them were Relief Society Super Saturday projects and the bottom wood one is the very first one I made. They are kind of cheesy, I guess, but I like them!

This one is a countdown until Christmas. Jud loves to move the star each day.

This is the first set I made. I got the pattern out of a magazine and cut it out with our scroll saw. I am not a very good painter but it sure was fun to do.
