This is the view down the street. It's kind of fun to see all the rooftops covered in snow.
I had to throw in an Abby picture. Plus check out her candy cane shirt I got from our last sale.
Sometimes when we are driving around, I'll tell Ethan to look at the trees, flowers, etc. I'll ask him who made that. He tells me that God did. I then ask Ethan if we should tell God what a good job he did? Ethan will then say, "Good job God." When I look outside and see the snow over everything or the ice covering each individual limb, I can't help but say, "Good job God!"

Here's a clip from one of my favorite movies to watch this time of year. I was going to try to play that song in the background on my blog, but it's too much work to figure that out. So, I know you've all been dying to know what we've been up to during Arctic Blast '08. Your dreams are about to come true. Ethan has REALLY been into dancing and Frosty the Snowman by Harry Connick Jr. One night this week while I was making spaghetti, I put that song on. Ethan ran in as fast as he could and started to dance. We had a great time. We also discovered that cookie sprinkles make great shakers to dance with.
Ethan: She's a Gingerbread
She was so bundled up that she couldn't get her hands near her bottle. She drank half of her bottle like this.
Ethan: I'm ready to play
Ethan: Hand me that snowball. I know what to do with it.
Yeah that's right. I'm lookin' at you.
Here is Ethan headed right for me

Ethan: Hey Abby, I have an idea. Come a little closer so mama can't hear. Let's be silly. Follow my lead.
Ethan: Hey Abby, I have another idea. Let's play a joke on mommy and not smile. It will be so funny. Trust me.
Ethan: Good job Abby. You're really getting into it.
Abby: I don't know what you're talking about.
Abby: Pssst. Hey, maybe we can look at the camera
Abby: Wow, mama is sure acting silly. I can't believe she just made that silly face. Ethan: I know. She is crazy. She's deserves a good one. Let's smile for the next one. Abby: Good idea.

So here he is putting up his first "real" ornament. He managed to do it without any help. He takes his work very seriously.
Showing off his work
Abby taking in all the fun
