They day after Christmas we had a huge blizzard. It started snowing at about midnight and snowed the whole day. It was pretty fun!
Later after the blizzard, my dad took the kids outside and helped them make a snowman and snow fort. I've said it before, but my dad is just so awesome. Seriously, what a great Grandpa. The kids love their snowman and fort.
And while they were all outside in the cold, my mom and I were in the house painting all the wooden animals my dad made for me. I had asked him to make me a Noah's Arc, complete with animals, for Christmas--which besides them visiting for Christmas, was my ultimate favorite gift. My mom didn't have time to paint them before Christmas, so she and I got to do it together. They aren't finished yet, but as soon as I'm done painting them, I'll post pictures. In the meantime, here are the ones we do have:
You can't tell, but Derrick's cheeks are so rosy!
