Our White Christmas 2012

The weather on Christmas day was crazy!  We woke up at 5:00am to a hail storm that lasted forever.  It was a full 30 minutes of hail.  It was cold and drizzled all morning.  By about 2:00 in the afternoon, it was snowing!  We were so excited to have a white Christmas!

I tease Wade all of the time about being "Fun Dad."  There are very few times when I outshine him as the fun parent.  Snow days are one such exception.  Wade HATES to be cold.  So, I get to be cool mom on the rare occasion that we get snow.  ;)

 I decided that it would be fun to use the kiddie pool as a sled to go down the hill in our backyard.
 It didn't work out as well as I imagined.  Oh well....

Snowball fights were the preferred activity.  No surprise there!

Clayton managed to find a worm in the snow under the play set.  Boys...  :)

Baby Brother woke up from his nap and he was none too happy that we were playing in the snow without him.  We were about to come back inside, so he settled for a faux snowball fight through the glass door.  Ha!

The snow made a wonderful Christmas even better!  Christmas 2012 has set the bar high for the best Christmas ever.  I just can't imagine it getting any better, but I am sure that it will.  :)

You are a blogging machine! I'm so impressed.

It's so fun to get caught up with your family. I'm so happy that y'all got to have some special time with just the five of you. And snow to top it all off!
