Snow days!

This picture reminds me of the Chirstmas story. Poor Nixon could barely move. And I was laughing so much and running to get my camera that I wasn't much help. Once we were outside Nixon was fine as long as i was pushing him in his car that he got for his birthday.
The boys loved our new train for our tree. I'll be honest though, I don't think they were quite old enough for it. It spent most of the time knocked over on the floor. I'd even leave it that way for days, finally set it back up and within 10 min it was back on its side. It got old after a while. But now we have it for when they are older.
Nathan and Parker built a snow man a few weeks ago. They were outside shoveling and then Parker asked Nathan "Do you know how to build a snow man Dad?" So cute, so they got right to work! We even used our potato head pieces for the face. I need to find those kits that are specifically for snow man because the potato head pieces had a hard time staying in. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and where to find them???
Nixon is finally getting old enough to sit through a story or two every other night. So we all climb up in our bed and Nathan reads to us. Sometimes I have to take Nixon out early and other days he is fine to sit there and finish with the scriptures.
We saw Santa! Parker was mesmerized by him. He told him exactly what he wanted and Santa said he's see what he could do. When we left the building Mrs. Claus walked by which was perfect because Parker has been very concerned with what she does while Santa brings us our toys. I tell him she makes his dinner and cleans the house so that he can relax when he gets home. If only I could do the same for Nathan every night!

That is so funny because Cloey asked the same thing this year about Mrs. Claus and I told her that the elves make such a big mess that she needs to stay home and clean up, make some hot chocolate and be ready with dinner once he gets home. That seemed to answer that for her and she smiled. I love how little kids think.
It looks like you had a GREAT Christmas!!
