Have any of you seen this much SNOW! I have seen snow - we lived in Kentucky so I have seen lots of snow actually...but goodness! This was beautiful, white, falling SNOW! And on CHRISTMAS Day!! We have three floor to ceiling windows in our living room and we just sat and looked at it. I kept going back and forth to the window. Gorgeousness! :) Of course there were TONS of pictures! Here's a few of my favs so far...

This one is of the kids waiting to ambush Lee as he walked off the porch to play in the snow with them....

And yes....that's Melissa on the bottom of the pile! LOL!

ahhhhh...much better

Reworked Kade's Christmas tree. Actually "reworked" probably isn't the right word. It was more like.....take it completely down and re-do. It's better now. I don't walk by his door and cringe. :)

Gingerbread House....

This year for our Christmas Program at church, the decorating committee (ya'll rocked! :)) wanted each family to make a gingerbread house so they could be displayed on the tables in the fellowship hall after the program (we have to eat afterwards, of course!) So Kade, Konnor and Kensley were to make one together....well, it started off good - they were all in to it, but after about an hour, they were done. So me and Melissa and Kylee just HAD to finish it for them. :) Me and Kylee and Kade make one every year just for us normally - so I had a little experience. And a gingerbread house is the perfect thing to unleash my boxed up, dying to get out, over the top, Christmastime creativity. It's something about Christmas - my creativity levels get a boost. I constantly buy craft supplies around this time of the year! Anywhoo.....we finished it for them, and I even went and added some to it just before the program. LOVED it!! Here's the pics:
