One of the perks of Brandon's job is that he often gets days during the week off.  This week we took advantage of one of those days and played in the snow.  We had tons of fun building snow Mickey's, having a snow ball fight, and even making snow angels.  By the time we were done there wasn't much snow left in the backyard.
 Yep, that is Brandon in shorts.

The completed Snow Mickey.
 Learning to do snow angels. 

Snowball fights.

 Afterward we enjoyed some hot coccoa, marshmellows included.

Christmas Time Again

We are so excited it's Christmas time again.  With this time of year comes lots traditions and one of my favorites is going to the Festival of Trees.  This year the only time we could go was Saturday night.  It was crazy busy but still a lot of fun. 

This was probably Alex's favorite tree.
 Checking out Jack.

This was after we stopped for a treat.  We cannot go to the festival with out getting a scone or a cinnamon roll.  I think this was Alex's favorite part as well. 

Also, as per tradition we got to meet Santa and get our picture taken with Brandon's family.  Alex was a little nervous at first but after he got to talk with Santa for a minute he warmed up to him. 

Also, we were very excited this week to see our house is now officially underway.  We have a foundation!  Hopefully the snow lets up so they can keep it moving along.
