Snow, Snow & More Snow...

Tuesday night it snowed like crazy so no one went to work on Wednesday. Instead, we built an igloo that was almost 6 feet tall! Everyone was over for at least 5 hours and it was a lot of fun. Grama made Hot Chocolate, brownies, popcorn...& everyone else was outside for a lot of the time. It's a miracle that almost all of our family can get together and enjoy being with each other; not just the activity but actually the people. Without the Preached Word it
would not be possible.

Below are a few pictures of the day. I didn't put too many pictures up because the first Youtube video below the pictures is a slideshow of the day. The video below that, is a time-lapse of us making the igloo. I'm in the process of making a nature video as well & I'll post that later. If you like, click on my Youtube Channel link (located on the right side of my blog) to see a few of us being pulled behind Grampa's RTV on snowboards & toboggans. Also, I have updated my Flickr account (also on the side) with a lot of nature pictures I took over the last few days. I hope you enjoy them. Please let me know what you think:)

Sarah & I both wore this outfit when we were her age

Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of the old man, and fear thy God.
