Snow Days

About a month ago it dumped snow in our little town. We averaged about 10-12 inches (I think) and we stayed put. The snow was beautiful and the ice that covered everything was gorgeous too.

Todd built a little sledding hill for all the neighborhood kids (and us grown-ups too) to enjoy in front of our house. Then he helped build an igloo in our neighbor’s yard. It was a fun week snowed in!

Snow

We have had so much snow over the last few months. The first time it snowed I was searching for warm clothes to layer on Ruby. Then I realized I still had Ada’s old fluffy pink coat. There is a picture of Ada to compare :)

These were taken before Christmas! I will have the last big snow storm up soon.

Ada Turns 6!

Ada wanted a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle party this year, a notably different theme from her princess party last year :) She invited her closest friends and had lots of fun. This is the first year the party seemed to fly by, I think the kids all enjoyed playing together and keeping busy. Todd also came up with a tower building challenge involving dry spaghetti, marshmallows, tape, string, and scissors. The kids played in teams of two and tried to get the tallest standing structure in the end.

We did make the centerpiece cake again, all rice krispie treats and fondant. I am no sculptor, ha, but Ada liked the funny turtles I made (she made the shells) and pizza :)

The picture below is from Ada’s actual birthday dinner the night before her party. It is her favorite sushi restaurant because it comes around on a conveyor belt :)
