Snow Days

It must have snowed half the time we were there, and because we're all so snow-deprived, we LOVED it!! Even the freezing cold didn't bother us so much...we were playing in the snow night and day!
Here are the beanie boys all bundled up and getting ready to go out...

And here are the girls:

Here's our poor Arizona car covered in a few inches of snow...

This is a picture of the street in front of my grandparent's house...oh wait, you can't even see it!

This is Jeff...VOLUNTARILY shoveling snow from the sidewalk and carport (he actually asked my grandpa if he could, haha)

It's snowing on us!

We wanted to go sledding the first day it snowed, so we drove around for a while and couldn't find any good hills...as we drove back though, we saw some kids sledding down a slope on the edge of the cemetary (which is right across the way from my grandparent's house) We were so excited! So we bought some plastic...sled...things...(the first of which we broke after the second try) and had a blast! Because it was so close we went sledding a couple of days...
Here's my mom and dad:

I'm about to go down on my belly...

Emma going down on a tobaugan? Toe-bog-in? I don't know what it's called, but it's a plastic disc you sit in...

This is where we would end up after going down the slope

Apparently Jeff is really good friends with the snow...

...he likes the snow so much, he'll dress in barely anything...

This is our snow-family! On one of the other days it was snowing we decided to build some snowmen, since the fallen snow was perfect 'packing' snow, or so my cousins said. As you can see, they're HUGE (almost as tall as Jeff)! It took a lot of work to build them...there were 6 of us that spent almost 2 hours getting them perfected...
Unfortunately they didn't last very long...when we went the next day to show them off, somone had demolished them completely :(
