It's a boy thing I think.

Jared got two new air-soft guns from Santa for Christmas. Ryan and Jared had a grand time in the backyard giving each other welts. The decided the winner by who had less.

Breakfast at the cabin

I don't ever buy the kids sugar cereal except on vacations. The kids loved it and ate it all gone!. Why does food taste better when you are on vacation? Today we enjoyed a slow start and then a nice drive home. We stopped off at Red Robin on the way. It was a nice relaxing day.

The kids were so excited to be able to build a snowman. We didn't realize how hard it was to make it look nice. How do people do it? Today was filled with sledding, snow ball fights, snowman building, hot chocolate, board games and talent shows. A perfect day!

Cabin here we come!

When I looked up the weather report on the way to big bear we were all so excited to find out it was supposed to snow the night we got there!!! what we didn't realize is that the road we were planning on taking up there was closed. Ryan with his quick thinking and great techno skills found the back way up and we were in. We enjoyed a leaisurly evening eating a pasta dinner and watching tv. So excited for the morning when we can all play in the snow!

The day after Christmas

Tonight we went to the big Family gift exchange on Ryan's side. It was a little crazy and hectic but still fun. I forgot my camera at home so I snapped this picture of Joshua putting together the puzzle he got. The biggest excitment from my kids as far as presents go was the gift for Jared. His Aunt Hope got him a scouting bag complete with a sling shot and machete amongst other things.
