Snow, snow, and more snow...

You can't fully enjoy Christmas without snow. We got plenty of it right after Christmas. Luckily, I didn't have to shovel any of it. Aaron and the kids did it. The boys got small snow shovels for Christmas, so they were excited to use them. I love that they like to help out with stuff like that. Austin is the first one to start shoveling whenever it snows.

I took Abbie outside to see the snow. The first thing she did was grab it off the handrail and shove it in her mouth (kinda reminded me of her birthday). That child is not afraid of anything and will put anything in her mouth. I got her dressed in her snow suit so she could walk around with the big kids, but she was not happy with that.

Daddy's here...and boy is he hairy!!

The kids were excited for Christmas, but I think they were more excited to see their dad. They attacked him when he got here and climbed all over him. It didn't take long for Abbie to warm up to him either.

However, he was in dire need of a haircut and shave when he got here. Coincidentally, the boys needed haircuts too. So I made coupons good for one free haircut and put them in all the boys' stockings. Yes, I have been known to cut their hair. It's not to hard to buzz it.


Abbie fits right in with the boys and their short hair cuts!

Ok, thought I'd better get some of my Christmas pictures posted finally. Everyone got what they wanted most. Ashley got a Nintendo DS (I haven't been able to separate her from it!). Austin got a bike and a skateboard. Andrew got a bike and a friend for his turkey. For those of you who don't know, he has this beanie baby turkey that my mom got him. He takes it everywhere! Abbie got some toys and clothes. I got a break since Aaron was here. We had a nice, relaxing Christmas. It's tradition in my house to stay in your pajamas all day, be lazy, watch movies, and eat whatever you can find. Gotta love it!
