Building Snow Memories in a Laundry Basket, building Forts, and more Christmas!!

So this post is a bit random, but what else is new!!!

SNOW DAY!! Laundry Basket Sledding!
Since yesterday we actually had more than a little dusting of snow I just had to get the kiddos out. We have nothing remotely close to a sled...and we really don't have a slope of any kind either....so after scouring the house for something fun to do, I found one of our laundry baskets and tied a scarf to it...WHY NOT, RIGHT??!! It was a lot of fun! And a bit a of a workout for me as well....a win win deal!

Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa Howard's!!
This past Saturday we went over to Chris' parents to enjoy some Christmas time!!!

Pillow Fort!
This was this past week. Sometimes the kids like to take all the pillows and cushions off the couch and chair...this was one of those days, so I figured we would just build a fort!!! The point was to let them have something to crawl through and play under......
....although instead of going through it they liked to jump on it!

...and apparently Asher thought it was a good place to watch the movie ;p

Having fun on our new Motorcycle!!!
The group gift from gma and gpa! They are still figuring it all out, but are doing great! They get super excited when they make it GO themselves. I have to say that Trinity is doing the best so far! She got it to go all across the living room by herself (with me right next to her....but no helps!)
