Kids in Snow

 The kids played outside in the snow for a long time today.  

It was nice to have a break from the...ummm....joyful (yep, that's 
the adjective I'm looking for)noises of children at play.

The noise and mess were outside for a couple hours.

We went to a Christmas puppet show on Sunday.  Last night we went to the historic district in Cumberland and walked around looking at the lights.  We took the wagon and, miracle of miracles, Davis pulled Kaitlyn and sleeping Emily for a good chunk of our walk.  I figured we'd hear plenty of whining but they were all good sports.  :-)

Do you know the Officer Buckle and Gloria story?
It's a favorite around here.

Naturally, the kids listen to Officer Buckle about as well as they listen to me.

    1. Well, it shouldn't....but it probably does. :P

  2. Officer Buckle? Never heard of him..........Love the snow pictures! I remember those days - 30 minutes to get everyone bundled up. Not to make you feel bad or anything, but we were in short sleeves today and had the air conditioning on in the van! Of course, it's cooled down now and we have a fire in the fireplace. Have to love that AZ weather!!

  3. Your little boys are missing out! On both Officer Buckle and snow. :D Officer Buckle and Gloria can be found on Youtube if you're interested and snow can be found by heading north...or northeast to visit your friends. :-) We'll give you hot chocolate with candy canes to help you thaw out.
