Snow, Mud, & More

 Last week we bundled the kiddos up to play out in the snow.  This was our first chance this winter to play in the snow so even though there was probably only an inch outside we wanted to take advantage of it.
 This lil guy was very excited about it.
 Sissy fell over while trying to walk out the door and had a little trouble getting back up.  I guess she maybe had on one too many layers.
 The boys heading to the backyard to start playing.
 Sissy trying to catch up.
 We figured out real quick that it wasn't the right kind of snow to build a snowman.
 Checking it out for herself.
 Sun in the eyes kind of smile.
 Making a snow angel....but he looks more like a dead fish.
 You can kind of make out a snow angel where he had been laying.
 Bubby and daddy racing to the van and back.
 "I can't put my arms down."
 She sees all the toys at the neighbors house.
 Running with Mommy.
 Sissy headed into the garage to look for toys and Bubby was trying to make a snowball.
 She found the tractor.
 And even though she couldn't get it to move she wanted to stay on the tractor.
 Back outside Bubby and Daddy were having a snowball fight.
 Bubby thought it was the greatest thing in the world....even though he couldn't get his snowball to stay together.
 And Sissy was still content on the tractor....all by herself.
 One of Bubby's favorite things to do is to go to Walmart and look at all the Imaginext toys.  He knows that we can't buy anything until his birthday but he just loves seeing what toys they have and explaining what each toy does.
 Luckily Sissy is content just hanging out in the cart.
 In case you ever wonder what to do when its cold outside and you can't fit your hands in your pockets....just stick them in your hood to keep them warm.
 Bubby made this block house and parking garage for all his Imaginext toys.
 A couple days later it really warmed up so we headed to the park to play.  I knew it would be muddy but the kids needed out of the house so I took the chance anyway.
 Bubby loves writing in the dirt with a stick.
 Can you find my lil girl?  She definitely doesn't mind going off on her own.
 Toppled over in the mud.
 Enjoying the only slide that didn't have water sitting at the bottom of it.
 Muddy boots.
 I'm pretty sure I spent the whole time chasing this lil girl around cuz all she wanted to do was walk in the mud.  We spent about 15 minutes at the park before mommy had enough and we loaded up and went home.
 Our own lil ghost at our house.
No's a cute ghost.
 Love the expressions on their face.
 Bubby painting with a book that his Grandma got him for Valentine's Day.
 Heading down south to go to Mommy's doctor appointment.
 We stopped at the park for a bit and Marley really enjoyed all the ducks and geese.
 So did the kids.  I think the pond is being overtaken.
 I love that while I make supper these two love being in the kitchen with me doing the dishes.
 We finished the night making a tent.
 Bubby was trying to put it up and Sissy was tearing it down.

How about one more video of Sissy reading her favorite book to me.  You can pick out some of the words she is saying like "Help, Truck, Moo, Duck, Beep, Honk."
