How Many Polacks Does It Take To Have A Party?

The answer is 4. As long as they are your long lost sister and cousins! Even though we skype all the time, it's still not the same as having them in America! We had a great time going to Disneyland, the Korean Bell, Ft. MacArthur Military Museum, Cabrillo Aquarium, Uncle Jon's house, and shopping, which of course included my favorite thrift store!

We finally got to see our third Polish cousin/nephew! Aaron Levi makes a DARLING Aaron Underpants, wouldn't you agree? He was amazingly persistent in getting those on his head.

Isaac and cousin David "camping" at Uncle Jon's house and eating the most delicious marshmallows imported from Polska.

Sliding, Not Sledding

After sledding down a nearby hill a few times with their cousins, the boys found the frozen playground much more fascinating! We don't have any of those around home! Notice how Seth flies off the slide!

Christmas in April

Well, here's your "surely" Lisa! But you can definitely count on the slowly for a while! I hope you all don't get whiplash from going so far back in time! We'll start with Christmas Vacation...

Well, after seeing Matt struggle for a while to make a snowman as though it were made of sand, I gave him a hint to pack a snowball and roll it around on the snow. He was amazed at how well it worked. Unfortunatley, though, for the life of me I couldn't remember what one uses for "coal", so Isaac suggested we use the grapes we brought from California. They worked perfectly!
(I can't believe I forgot we used rocks!!!!)

While Isaac and Matt were working away at building the snowman, I took about 20 pictures of Seth happily eating snow. Actually, gorging on snow would be a more appropriate term. Notice him biting the glove to get the last bits of snow off before he goes for another handfull.

By his smile here on the grounds outside of temple square, you can see that Isaac is in Celestial Glory (aka Heaven). Rather fitting that he made a snow "angel" at the temple. It was obvious by the joy and exuberance that he did this with that he had been waiting quite some time to do this since he could only read or watch things about snow angels in California.
