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.

Oh! Thank you! You had to teach Matt to roll a snowman!! How funny. At least you remembered THAT! Grapes for eyes. How silly. Those boys are darling. Thanks for sharing about their adventures in the snow!

heh, I never realized how a Californian might try to build a snowman, that's funny. I love Isaac in his Celestial Glory, he is SO CUTE! Seth eating his snow gives me a brain freeze just thinking about it!

Part of that smile on the Isaac Snow Angel is that he had just bested gramalee in a snowball fight right there on Holy Ground. :)
