White Christmas

My beautiful kids playing in the snow... We never imagined we would have to search for snow... In St. George there was not going to be a White Christmas this year so we decided to drive up to Pine Valley for a lil while to play in the powder.
It was a gorgeous day but very windy reminded us why we moved away from the cold in the first place but it was nice to visit the snow for just a lil bit..

The entire family went for the ride including the dogs. They did not last long in the cold. They definatly are summer dogs.. They were shivering as they walked.

The kids got their Christmas wish to see the snow. Good thing its close to visit. We had a fun time but froze our butts off... We prefer the warm weather but like the occassional snow angel.

We really had a blast making Ginger Bread Cookies & Ginger Bread Houses, one of our family traditions for the holiday season. At least the Ginger Bread house is a tradition.

Willie really wanted to make the cookies this year so we did & they turned out really yummy!!! They were actually from scratch. Isabella & William's finished Ginger Bread Houses were soo cute!! They had just as much fun eating the candy as they did making the houses...

The cookies were fun too!! Willie has been begging forever about making gingerbread cookies so I put him to work!! The kids & I cut out the cookies, baked, & decorated them!! We doubled the recipe so we could hand them out to our neighbors as well as have some to much for ourselves.

Our finished cookies were yummy & we couldn't help reciting "not my gumdrop buttons" as we made our cookies. Run run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the GiNgEr BrEaD MaN...
