Snow... Finally

We finally ended up with some measurable snow last week.  We hadn't really had much since our surprise October storm, and the kids were so excited.  Nathan was eager to be Daddy's helper and clean off Daddy's truck.

Girl Scout Cookies

It's that time of year again!
 My usually shy gal made great use of the phone to call family and friends to ask them to order cookies.  So proud of her!

Well, I guess I'm back from my long blog hiatus!  Today was a gorgeous Winter day!  The kids and I enjoyed an afternoon walk around the neighborhood.   
Well, we walked, and Nathan rode his bike.
Kids plus melting snow and puddles equals happiness!
 Trying to make a dam with the snow.
Success!
 Making snowballs....
Don't throw it at me please!
Splish, splash....
 Playing with the storm drain....
Love my gal!

Home school recess is the best!

Water Fight

The cousins all had a great time playing together.
The weather in El Paso was unbelievably hot.
A quick trip to Walmart for squirt guns turned into an afternoon of fun.
Another cousin joined in the fun.
Nathan has a new best friend.
Water guns gave way to hoses.
Soaking wet kids = happy kids.
The kids can't wait to go back to El Paso - 110 degree temps and all!

El Paso

Wow, too busy having fun traveling to update this blog.  Sorry to those of you waiting to see pictures!  :)
  This cutie above belongs to my brother and his wife whom we visited in El Paso.
 It was the first time we had met these two (wife and baby) and we had a blast.
 I can't believe my little brother has a baby girl.  Well, actually, both of my little brothers have had little girls this year! 
 Mike is so good with her.
Had a great time meeting Mike's step-daughter as well. 
Elizabeth was THRILLED to have more girls in the family.
She gets so tired of being surrounded by boys.
Couldn't pay my kids to pose for a picture....

The River Walk

 The pictures don't do it justice, but the River Walk in San Antonio was gorgeous!
 We enjoyed walking along the water.
 We took a boat tour.
 We found a boat named the "Kari".  :)
 Elizabeth was way too hot!
 We also saw a wedding on a boat on the water.
 I loved the light on the water.
