First Big Snow Storm

Our kids love the snow! The second we got home from church yesterday, they wanted to be outside playing in the snow. Our neighbors and good friends, Bryce and Amanda bought our kids a Snow Castle building set for Christmas. Carter and Cambree were very excited and spent the day building a snow castle. They were upset when we told them it was time to go to Grandma's house for dinner. They wanted to stay and keep building on to their castle.

Gingerbread House

One of our kids' favorite things to do at Christmas time, is to build a Gingerbread House. We always buy a kit and help them build it. They get to do all the decorating with the icing and candy. This year Calee kept trying to take the candy and eat it. Our kids did a really good job decorating their Gingerbread house, and they had a lot of fun doing it.


We took our kids to Cabelas on Friday. We ate upstairs at their restaraunt (the food was amazing). We wandered around and shopped for hours. Our kids loved all the animals and they loved feeding the fish. Their favorite thing was the aquarium. They kept wanting to go back over and over again. We had a lot of fun. I am pretty safe in saying it is our favorite store. I wanted to buy one of just about everything in there. I am glad that we are a family that loves to go camping, fishing, hunting, and be outdoors.

Skating at the Ice Sheet

Yesterday, I went with Carter on his field trip to the Ice Sheet. We had a blast ice skating. It has been awhile since either of us has been ice skating. Carter was a little shaky at first and falling a lot just like most of the 2nd graders I saw, but by the end when it was time to go, Carter was skating from one end of the rink to the other like a pro. without falling. I was really proud of him. It was fun for me to break away from work and go be with him and have some fun.
