domingo

Usually we have church from 2-5 (which is pretty awful), but today was stake conference and we were done with church by noon. So we had a (reverent) snowball fight. Milo was in heaven and now I feel bad we haven't played in the snow more often.

Pearl being a babe.

Emily and Steve gave us SnoBallers from Restoration Hardware for Christmas and they were AWESOME. We'd tried them before, but the snow was too dry to make a good snowball. But today they really delivered. You know that scene in Elf where Will Ferrell totally regulates some little kids in a snowball fight? That was us today. We threw a million perfect little snowballs at each other. And then I remembered I don't like snowball fights. They hurt. But there is real satisfaction in making a perfectly round little snowball.



The fun outdoors ended when Milo saw an eagle emblem on a mailbox and started screaming, "Oh! Lion! Scary! Oh, it hurts!" What a cute little weirdo.

How fun to see the old neighborhood. Brings back loads of memories.

I'm shocked there is a gadget out there that Ryan doesn't know about! I'm debating whether or not to tell him . . .

So fun! Pearl looks so cute with her beanie and her jacket! That snowball maker is the coolest thing! I need to get one!

a) I'm in love with Pearl.
b) You and Sarah have the best blog headers of anyone, hands down. If I cared about blogging, I'd ask you how to do it.
c) We'll have to call Milo next time we go sledding, if the eagles aren't hurting him too much.
d) Glad you like the snowball makers and glad you had a (reverent) snowball fight.

Pearl is so darling! She looks so big in that first picture. Growing up too fast, I tell ya!

I love reverent snowball fights. Actually I don't like snowball fights either. I like snow for about a month. I think it looks pretty, but inside I can't wait until it is gone.

I made a snowball in Flagstaff last Saturday. I wish I could have made one with Milo. AG

That first picture of Pearl, the one where her eyes match the carpet, could seriously be right out of a magazine. She is such a beauty. Again, Tim was the one to ask me if I saw that picture. I swear he is in love with that little babe!
