SNOW!!!

Its been a long winter without snow, and the girls resorted to all kinds of new activities to keep themselves occupied inside. New toys, games of dress-up, and even new foods like sushi were all part of the fun.

And ever since seeing snow at the cabin, the girls have been itching to get some of our own. This last week, the girls’ wishes came true. And even though we only got 2 inches, the girls didn’t waste any time getting outside for some sledding, snow angels and an attempt at making a snowman.

Once Santa had left the premises, it was time to follow him north in the pursuit of SNOW! Our holidays continued as we celebrated with Gil & Donna at the cabin, where we found snow every day, professional present openers, and lots of fun!

Four days of winter weather found us reluctantly ready to return to the unseasonably warm Iowa weather. But before returning home there was still time for one last Christmas celebration. We met Aunt Connie & Uncle Otis at Greg & Kim’s apartment in Iowa City for one last family gathering on New Year’s Eve day. More presents, Chicago style pizza, a family walk, and lots of hospitality from Greg and Kim made for a fun-filled day for all.
