Daniels FAVORITE time of year...... or not

It's Pine Wood Derby time. This year we have TWO cars to do. Let me just start by saying Daniel is not too fond of this event. In the past it has been a very frustrating event, coming from a house with no tools for the job. SO this year we headed on down to Grandpa Schern's Workshop! As you can see from the pictures, he has every tool you would need and more! All the boys had such a fun time making these cars this year, and that is what it is all about right? (well and winning helps I guess too, but we wouldn't know about that one)... The boys were so happy with their cars. Grandma made them special boxes with padding to take the cars home in. They were so excited to race!

Playing in the snow

Well we had a snow day here a while ago, which doesn't take much snow usually... But we did get a good amount and decided to enjoy it while it lasts! It was Marcus's first time out touch the cold wet stuff. Needless to say, he didn't think it was as fun as the other kiddos! All three kids, with the help of their dad, built some pretty cool forts in the front yard that kept them entertained for quite a while!

I like this picture. It is cute to me to see it when Marcus and Ella hang out together. A boy and his dog.
