Snow Day!!!

We we VERY lucky to receive over a foot of snow in about 12 hours!  It is amazing considering we don't get too much snow..and when we do, its usually only a few inches that typically melts soon after falling.  The schools closed, as did Mark's job, so we all enjoyed our snow day!!!  Here are some pictures of our snow day fun!!

Whats snow for?  Making snow balls...and then throwing them at friends!

My sweety 17-year-old!!

Ok, so its fortunate that my girls had mittens, but we certainly did NOT have any boots!! (We don't usually need them!)  So to improvise, I rubberbanded white Wal Mart bags over the girl's shoes in order to keep them dry.  Its tacky, I know, but it works.  A little "south-side" improvision!

My cute 13-year-old.  Notice the braces on the teeth?  He just got them last week!

Here's Avery all ready to go outside and play in the snow!
Nick & Avery!!  She calls him "Nicky"

Dad was pulling the girls around the yard on the sled, and when they hit a little bump and Avery fell off.  She did NOT like that at all!  Here she is crying after her little tumble.  Daddy loved her and eventually she recovered!  :)

Addison LOVED the snow!!!!  -Especially when sledding!!
Here is Avery after her tumble off the sled.  Poor baby!

Here she is happy again!

Wow!!!  Thats the biggest snow ball EVER!!

More fun sledding!!

We had so much fun!  After sledding we ate chili and sat by the fire!  A perfect snow day!!

Sorry its been so long!

 I'm terribly sorry its been so long since I've posted anything!  To be honest, nothing much has happened.  You know, no holidays, no birthdays, no outings (Since its been so cold, and I'm back at work) so I haven 't taken any new pictures lately.  I felt quite bad SO I decided to just take some photos of the girls in their pjs!   Addie likes to watch movies on the ipad before bed..  This is why she has those huge earphones on!! 
 Addie watching her show!
 being ornery!!!
 Avery was being a goof ball!  She was really tired and she tends to get CRAZY when that happens!
 Here she is sicking on her two middle fingers...She does this ALL the time!  I have no idea how we will ever stop her from doing this!!
 More sweetness!!
 Here she is holding her blanket, ready for bed!

 I was tickling her when I took this picture!
 As you can see, we are growing out Avery's bangs!  They're getting really long!  They will actually go in a pony tail!
Here she is with her "I'm up to no good" face!  So cute!

Here is a video of Avery and Addison at Orange Leaf, a fantastic frozen yogurt place!  Addison always asks to go there!  It started out as a simple video of us at the yogurt store, and ended up with them fighting!  Oh well, its a slicee of real life!!  :)

This video is a random one of the two girls at one of Jack's wrestling meets.  They were coloring and playing.  They were so sweet!
