Winter Wonderland

Family Night #2 was Winter Wonderland. We had a great night!
Secily & I did the decorating.... snowflakes!




We dressed the part -

Had snowman soup (kindof creepy looking, I know...)



and had snowflakes for dessert (or puppy chow....how I miss you Lesley!)

Ryan & Larson made marshmallow guns this afternoon, for our 'snowball fight'!


We had a glacier on the playset, and the object was to hit the glacier with the snowball....


It quickly turned into, let's hit Daddy with the snowballs!

Then it turned into, let's break the glacier in the street (this unplanned activity turned out to be Larson's favorite part of the evening. Am I surprised? no.)

We finished off the evening with a wintery craft - snowman suncatchers!

It was a fun evening!
