Snow and Cute Girls

Look what we woke up to this morning! After breakfast we got all bundled up, then I shoveled while the girls explored the snow.Then we made a snowman! I was under the impression that since it was "lake effect" snow it would be pretty wet, but I was wrong. I can't believe how dry Utah snow is! It makes it really hard to make a snowman when the snow doesn't pack together, but the girls had fun and they were very proud of their work. A few weeks ago Shannon thought Leah looked tired, so she got her a blanket and a pillow and her pacifier and put her to bed. Leah loved it!
Our girls love books. Here they are after getting some new books at the library, reading together. This is one of their favorite things to do.
I love sleeping kids. I can't stand how cute they are, so I take lots of pictures. I thought this was really cute because of her little hand under her head.
I used all of the rocks that I found in my yard and garden this summer to make a rock barrier for the flower bed in my backyard. Shannon thought I was making a giant snake, so she decided to make one of her own. She took a bunch of rocks to the driveway and made this. I especially loved the smile and the eyes made with sidewalk chalk.

Pumpkin Patch and Stuff

We met with Aunt Jeny at Hee Haw Farms a few weeks ago. Nickell and family were going to come as well, but Kade was sick that day.Here is the giany pumpkin at the entrance. The car in the background was smashed on purpose during this year's pumpkin drop. We didn't get to see that, but I bet it was impressive! This is what Leah does when she doesn't get her nap. She was a very good girl, but she mostly just wanted to snuggle her dad. Shannon went down the big slide all by herself this year, but if you listen carefully you can hear her scared sound. She did a great job, though!

When Aunt Jeny went down with her, she wasn't scared at all. Aunt Jeny, on the other hand... (listen very carefully at the beginning)

Shannon loved the "train" so much this year that she thought we were going to let her ride in every car. We might have had there not been other people waiting for a turn.

Leah didn't want anything to do with the ponies, but Shannon loved it!
