Sledding!!!!!!

On Mark's way home from work today, he stopped and bought a sled...it made for some REAL fun!

Our home has been magically transformed! The snow is so foreign to Las Vegas that I think we will lose some of our landscaping. I'd trade some bushes for a great snow storm any day!

Sliding down the drive way...typically done either on a bike or a skateboard...a sled is doing the job just fine!




This girl is LOVING all the white stuff!! She's in Heaven...I think we all are!



I had achievement days today...while I was out with the girls caroling and delivering treats to families in our ward...Mark and Bryanna were busy making a snowman!! Frosty turned out pretty amazing!! I've NEVER been Christmas caroling in the snow...it was magical and a day to always remember!!

We hope Frosty is still outside waiting to play with us in the morning!

Our house at night...covered in snow!!!!!


This has been a gift from Heavenly Father...For the Beauty of the Earth...We are still walking on cloud 9!!

I can't believe we missed it!!!! That much snow in Las Vegas is AMAZING. When we left for our trip the girls were still wearing shorts. Have fun!! Merry Christmas.

I can't believe you guys got that much snow either! It is beautiful! I'm in CO right now and we have over a foot of snow and it's still coming down. Great snowman and that's so fun that Bryanna is sledding down the driveway. We're going to go sledding sometime. We just shoveled for a couple hours yesterday. Anyways, you guys have a very Merry Christmas and we'll have to catch up next year!

So is the snow still there? The first snow is always so MaGiCaL and FuN, I say first because by the time th 500 snow hits we are SICK of it!
Glad you are having fun!

So what I want to know is why a 4 year old little girl who lives in Las Vegas even owns snow pants! You were probably one of 10 people in the city that was prepared to go sledding! Have fun - what a wonderful early Christmas present for you guys! Wish it would stop snowing here......
