Frosty Comes to Town

Uncle Kelly finally arrived this week, so Josh and Clara put him to work building a snowman.  He made sure that we had carrots first (for a nose), and requested that Uncle Curt buy charcoal on his way over so that the eyes would be made out of coal.  I fashioned a top hat and we were good to go.  I gave Josh and Clara some early Christmas presents - an igloo maker and a brick maker.  That should keep them occupied for at least 10 minutes.

We love when Uncle Kelly comes to visit.  Then I can take pictures and stay warm while he does all of the work with the cold wet stuff!

Sled Dogs

They actually aren't dogs, but we went sledding after a big snowfall.  We have a few different parks in the area with perfect hills for sledding.  The snow was pretty deep and slushy so they didn't get much traction, but we still had a lot of fun.

Gingerbread House

One Sunday night we made gingerbread houses with the besties.  We each bought a kit because we like things to be easy.  Lo and behold - it was!

Temple Square 2012

We decided to go to Temple Square before it was too cold to enjoy the lights.  It was really crowded, but very beautiful.  Fortunately, the uncles were there so Clara had shoulders to ride on.
